look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is slightly hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down rather quickly, leaving lacing covering the surface, a thick collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit, caramel, toasted, and toffee malts are present in the nose along with hints of floral hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts off with initial flavors of biscuit, toasted, and toffee malts and is followed by a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed the malt profile of this IPA, which was both complex and traditional for an English-style ale.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

poured 12oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Pours a light bronze color with 1.5 finger white head and moderate carbonation evident. Lacing is very heavy and coats the glass well.

S - Smells of citrus hops, Noble and pine hops, grapefruit, earthy notes along with English malt. The scent of hops and malts is very nice.

T - Citrus, pine, and Nobel hops. Caramel and English malts, grapefruit, earthy notes, bready malts. A bit less pine and citrus than the nose.

M - Medium body and moderate carbonation, with no bitter bite to it at all.

O - Overall a very good English style IPA. Nice to see Central Waters bring this back as a seasonal.

Pours a dense, resiny, tan head that has ridiculous persistence and laces madly. Initially, a citrus hop aroma, but caramel can be detected once the head finally collapses. Burnt umber color. Starts with a toasty malt and flash of caramel. Moves quickly into a medium-high bitterness; citrus rind and pine. Bitterness hangs on, leaving a finish dominated by citrus rind bitterness.

This isn't too bad. The finish is a bit overly lingering. I'd like to have a little more variety of hop profile into the finish. That being said, I typically dislike English-style IPA's, but this one is drinkable.
