3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subtle aroma masks an intensely hoppy taste. Pours dark gold with tan head. Grapefruity and bready. Good, but not great

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky copper with thin off white head. Light lacing left throughout. Thereís a tropical fruit, pine, caramel, and light booze aroma. Medium body thatís smooth and creamy on the palate, with a light alcohol warming on the back end. Flavorís of grapefruit, pine, caramel, apricot, citrus, and spices. A decent brew overall. An average DIPA, but definitely worth picking up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a slightly hazy burnt orange with an off-white head. The aroma blends resiny and citrus hops with light notes of caramelly malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, but the sweetness comes through more in the aftertaste as the bitterness gradually fades. The palate fuses a soft carbonation, thick texture, a medium body.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle bought outside of Chicago. Pours a clear golden with an orange hue. Aroma of pine and citrus.Flavor is clean with a medium body and rich malty sweetness There is a delicious juicy hop character that blends very well with the malty sweetness. Right up front is lots of caramel and a significant amount of sweetness but it blends perfectly into the high hop flavor and bitterness in this beer. Pine and citrus come through in the flavrwith just a touch of bitterness at the end. This beer leaves a clean palate with fading hops, caramel sweetness, and a hint of alcohol warmth on the tail end. Hop Centric is a delicious and well-rounded beer that is a must try for all DIPA lovers. It is pretty rich and probably too malty for some but it is still a helluva beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orangish hue with a frothy light orange head and minimal, streaky lacing. Aroma of hops and yeast with hints of citrus & grass. Heavy taste of hops that is well balanced with malt and alcohol. While this delicious Double IPA brings it with 9.9%abv, it is still incredibly drinkable and welcoming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a translucent copper with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter pine, sweet caramel malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, bitter pine and citrus. Fairly balanced but a bit too much of a malt presence for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initial mild spice that is not indicative of hoppy beers. A mild orange spice that is smooth on the tongue. Little aftertaste but a taste of allspice continues.
