Was recommended by an elderly man in my local liquor store.
The beer is found in a can which is unusual for me because I am accustomed to purchasing craft beer in a bottle.
It pours deep orange with a thin head that leaves remnants atop the brew.
The smell of the beer is tremendous. There is a pungent super-hoppy/piney an fruity aroma that iterally flows from the can. The smell is delicious.
The taste offers exactly what the smell presents initially. The beer is deliciously hoppy with a perfect balance of citrus and pine hops. The best part about the beer is as it warms, a distinct pineapple flavor becomes present which inreases its scrumptiousness. There is a nice malty exit that is not very overpowering.
The mouthfeel is exceptional and ranks equally with many IPAs. It almost feels as if it could be a dIPA.
The beer has a powerful hop-foward taste but the alcohol is almost perfectly masked which heightens its drinkability. I fortunately have the opportunity to drink this beer regularly. Because of that, I must say that this guy is the steeple of my beer drinking preference. Easy to get for me and never, ever a let down. If you like a unique take of the style find this beer immediatley.

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.
