Good ipa color here, amber, orange and yellow. Nice 3/4" head on it, doesn't stick around too long, its somewhere between white and off white.
Aroma was hoppy, not proprietary hoppy, but just run of the mill C hop hoppy, and enjoyable. Maybe there was Simcoe, it was a little bit piney.
Taste, solid, not a heavy malt bill, but neither too light, minimal caramel, the hopping was solid, again, not too exotic, pretty straight up enjoyable. Peppery at times, but far from overly. Considerable bitterness that isn't a chore, because of the other flavors going on.
Grassy mouthfeel to the hops. Good stuff. Good, not great. Check it out if reasonably priced. But there's hundreds of 'em out there.

Poured from a 650ml bottle, no dating. Clear dark orange body with two fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of lacing.
Tons of grapefruit, pine, lemon, orange peel and citrus notes on the aroma. Some sort of "dank" hoppy note too.
Citrus and grapefruit flavor on the tongue and forwards into big hop bitterness with some lemon and orange peel notes. Juicy hop flavor. Leaves a dry, very bitter, hoppy aftertaste.
Medium body, smooth and quaffable. Nice amount of carbonation to go along with the body and flavor.
Nice IPA from Central City.
