Poured into an imperial pint glass. Had a generous 3 finger frothy head that lingered for a bit, and left off white lacings on the glass. Beer was a slightly darker golden amber with plenty of carbonation rising from the bottom. Smell started off slightly herby and then shifted to an orangey citrus aroma. Small hints of sweet and flowers rounded it out. Flavor started off with plenty of hops, but then shifted to a slightly offputting acidic flavor before changing back to a bit more of bitterness from the hops. Felt strange in the mouth, almost dried out the inside which was a unique feeling to have immediately after consuming a liquid. Overall not a bad IPA, but the strange taste in the middle coupled with the funny mouthfeel took it down a bit.

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.
