My first experience with Central Waters starts with the packaging, which is a nice plain closed six pack box, with a sticker telling me what is inside. I open the bottle and pour it into my Surly pint, and a nice copper pour starts, with a nice one finger off white heads sits on top. The head stays as I take in the appearance of this brew, and it seems nice and rocky. The aroma is subtle hops (mostly citrus and floral american), not quite in my face as I was expecting, but they are there. Some caramel and biscuit malts round out the aroma. So, I bring the glass to my mouth with the expectations of an average IPA, but I am a little suprised when I taste what seems to be a somewhat British IPA character. But, by no means is this British, the American hops have a great flavor of spice and Orange citrus. The charater I feel is from the malts, which seem to have that bready feel under a nice caramel malt backbone. The feel is smooth and full, with a great carbonation. Drinkability? Yeah I'll have another as this one is extremely easy to drink.
