We recently got this beer and it's Pale Ale buddy in my store for the great price of 16 dollars for a six-pack. Even for Canada, that's a lot. I was intrigued however, that this had a 95 on beer advocate - the highest rating of and Canadian craft beer we have at my store save for La Fin Du Monde. I love to try new stuff, and this is hard to resist.
It pours a brilliant orange colour - a little more attractive than some other IPAs I've had - which is a tall order. The aroma is rich in grapefruit and hops. Grapefruit is a natural pairing for beer, and whether or not some was added to the beer, it's extremely palatable. The taste is powerfully hoppy, which seriously makes me wonder how hoppy their imperial IPA must be. Pity we can't get it in. There is a ton of texture on my tongue, and the aftertaste is strong and citrusy. This is really a beer for hop heads. I love me an IPA and even I find this a wee bit strong. Still, it's an extremely good beer and I await the rest of the 6-pack.

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.
