Can from Top Hops, New York. Clear golden/orange beer with a rich offwhite head. Hoppy citrus and caramel aroma, grapes, biscuits, oranges, some floral hops. Sweet hoppy flavor, grapes, orange notes, caramel notes. Was hoping for more. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a finger of sticky off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
S: Quite heavy on the caramel and toffee maltiness. The hop character is there, though in the background. It’s mostly spicy and herbal with a decent grass note, too. Just a hint of fruitiness on the back end.
T: Strangely toasty in nature with lots of bready malts and caramel. A slight bitterness to it with lots of woody/herbal hops and a light spicy note, too. There is still a fair amount of sweetness, too.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Too sweet without the real intense and citrusy hop profile that I tend to look for in an IPA. Dedollewaitor (16543) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2010

In mouth, a biscuit malt with pinhey herbal hops, pink grapefruits, nice, smooth, well balanced. Bottle at the Istmus Beer and Cheese, Jan 21 2012. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
On Tap, it is rather pedestrian for an IPA, Central Waters needs to amp up the hops.
