Got this one due to the overwhelming persuasion from my brewing buddies.
A - Nice orange color with brilliant white head. Sticky lacing all the way down. Very clear for unfiltered ale.
S - Strong hop nose. Full of centennial hops with citrus, pine, and some floral. Very light alcohol fragrance.
T - Has all the hops from the smell with a plethora of pine and citrus/grapefruit on the front with a nice blend of caramel malt. Nice complimenting malt flavor but still more hops as an IPA should be. Very smooth finish with nice hop bitterness which adds crispness.
M - Moderate to moderate/full mouth-feel with the tones of sweetness. Has enough bitterness to make it not linger on the back of the tongue. Fine carbonation.
Overall, one of the best IPA's I've had. I love the centennial hops and the nice balancing act with the malt and hops. Perfect if you don't like overly bitter IPA's and would like a more citrusy example. It's from the Midwest but seems like it should be from the Pacific NW. I could drink these for quite a while.

4.43/5 rDev +3.7%

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a very tall head that has great retention and leaves behind plenty of lacing.
Smell is very strong of grapefruit and pine, an explosion of hops in the foreground with sweet caramel malt in the background.
Taste is sweet and biscuity, balanced with plenty of dry floral hops which all comes together for a bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp, even a bit soft and creamy.
Overall, an excellent IPA that is on the medium side in terms of hop intensity, always a welcome addition to the fridge.
