Paired this one with some baby swiss cheese while watching Big Ten football on a Saturday afternoon. Really, this is about as good as it gets.
A - A pretty, burnt orange color with some crimson in the middle of the glass. One finger head that sits around for a while and then fades to a few bubbles. Great lacing that remains on the lining of my pint glass for the duration of the drink.
S - Citrus hops up front with some piney hops in the finish. Good, but nothing exceptional.
T - This actually surprised me. This is a delicious beer. Sweet, crisp, citrus hops up front that linger through out. The finish is a light, biscuity pilsner that lingers on the palate. Mmmm.
M - Good. Appropriate for an IPA.
D - Exceptional. I could drink this one all day. I would like to tackle a pitcher of this on tap. I'm glad it's in Chicago now - I would love to always have a few waiting for me in the fridge.

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.
