3.45/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Welcome to MN central waters!

Bottled in march. Poured into tulip.

A: Very hazy orange with a few floaties in there. Not much head to speak of, quarter inch dies down to a ring around the glass. Decent lacing.

S: The smell is very inviting. More tropical than citrus fruits in the aroma, pineapple, guava, passion fruit, and a little tangerine all mingle together. Also some herbal tea aromas mixing in there. Very juicy and not a lot of pine. Smells great.

T: Not quite as impressing as the smell but still good. Starts out fairly bitter and remains that way throughout. In the taste there is more of the citrus flavors I'm used to with a little herbal twinge. Malt flavor is there with a touch of sweetness but you really have to seek it out. This kind of reminds me of an IPA I made not too long ago with cascade, amarillo, and columbus. I'm curious to know what hops they used.

M: Pretty spot on for the style. No complaints here.

D: Don't know the ABV on this one but I'd say the drinkability is pretty average. Not a session beer, not an extreme beer.

O: Not bad at all. The only other central waters I've had is the barley wine and I enjoyed that one very much. I'll probably pick this one up again.

3.53/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium orange color with a white head and all due lacing. In the aroma, stewed hops full of citrus and floral notes. Definitely grapefruit.

In the taste, rounded flavor of orange and grapefruit citrus, green onion and herb. Malt body has caramel and bread. Moderate to firm bitterness and a nice clean finish.

Medium bodied ale with a crisp carbonation. Overall, this is a solid ipa without much of a bite. Smooth and refreshing. A good beer for sure.
