Clear, reddish orange, darker in color than usual IIPA. Aroma is not strong, some citrus and pine. Flavor is huge though, lots of orange, caramel, apricot, grapefruit. Resiny, hoppy, sweet, a little boozy. Perhaps a bit malty for some but solid and enjoyable overall. JakeG (26) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a murky copper-orange with a small off-white head. Aromas of citrus hops, lots of grapefruit and oranges. Tastes of juicy fresh hops-- delicious! Nice body, creamy mouthfeel. dukeandduke (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
3/24/15 (Draft - Iron Horse Ale House Chicago) - Solid pour, slight tan head, copper red look. Nominal scent, great hoppy taste. Solid feel and texture, moderate carbonation, strong texture, bitter taste and kick going down. Overall excellent beer. aumentm (750) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Great hoppy beer. One of my favorites. Its fresh but bitter with a wonderful aftertaste and nice head SotallyTober (113) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours a murky copper with thin off white head. Light lacing left throughout. There’s a tropical fruit, pine, caramel, and light booze aroma. Medium body that’s smooth and creamy on the palate, with a light alcohol warming on the back end. Flavor’s of grapefruit, pine, caramel, apricot, citrus, and spices. A decent brew overall. An average DIPA, but definitely worth picking up.

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. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 9, 2014
12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/9/14. Bottle from Gomer's in Kansas City. Pours to a light Amber color with a medium head. Aroma has notes of leather, resin & earthy notes. The taste has pine, resin a darker malt & slight booze. As it warmed the flavors blended better. Overall a pretty good DIPA.

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.

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. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
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.
