Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #52 (May 2011):
Canned craft from Canada. With the crack of the can, the hops permeate the nose with grapefruit rind, cedar, orange zest, musk, sweet pipe tobacco and some evergreen sap. Clear brassy look going on. Creamy, fluffy medium body pops with a bit of crispness. Hops jump on the taste buds like white on rice, and they are quite aggressive as well, with a high-reaching bitterness and citric rind flavor that gets right to the point. Peach and passionfruit ripeness with some dry toasted maltiness. Bitterness and hop flavor keeps on raking the palate far into the aftertaste. This no-nonsense IPA is hardcore, clean and drinkable.

3.95/5 rDev -7.3%

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.
