4.46/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
appearance: Very pretty burnt orange color, with excellent head and good lacing. It's a mighty fine looking beer, crisp and not cloudy.
Smell: Piney hop aromas with a certain sweetness to it. The smell makes you want to drink it.
Taste: Wonderful hoppy character with a sweet delicious malt backbone. It's piney with a resinous after taste but finishes clean on the pallette. The carbonation level gives it a nice bite and the mouthfeel is pleasantly on the oily side.
Overall: Wow, what a great beer. I wish I had bought more than just the single can for this review. What really shines is the clean finish and the hops to malt balance. It all seems so wonderfully thought out.

3.95/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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.
