Picked this up at the Craft Beer Cellar and finally making time to review and escpecially enjoy this Canadian beauty. Beer was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: The beer has a nice orange/amber color with signs of little carbonation. One finger head reduced to a thin layer very quickly.
Smell: Can you say hoppy? Yes sir, plenty in this one. Notes of pine and citrus like orange and grapefruit. This beer belongs on an island or in a forest. Pretty much works for most people.
Taste: Just like the smell, pine, grapefruit, and orange. Definitely picking up some biscuit notes and sweet malts to balance out the bitterness in the beer. Even though it was brewed in Canada, they definitely had American IPA in mind.
Mouthfeel: A little boozy, slightly chewy, decently carbonated, and bitter towards the end.
Overall: This is a good beer that follows a lot of West Coast IPA styles. Do love the fact that they come in cans and are great for the beach, golf, hiking, or anything outside. I enjoyed this one and will be purchasing more in the future.

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.
