Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a rather cloudy amber color with a one half inch, white cap, spotty retention and soapy lacing.
S: Aromas of lemon citrus, cocoa, molasses, and pine.
T: Flavors of lemon citrus, caramel, and biscuit predominate. Bitterness nicely complements the flavor pallet.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Chewy.
O: A very enjoyable and well constructed American IPA. Would certainly have it again.

Rift IPA has a thin-to-medium, white head, an opaque, gold-orange appearance, and a bit of glass lacing. Aroma is heavy on tropical citrus fruits and white bread. The taste is hop forward, with bitterness, apricots, resin, and white bread crust. Sugary sweetness is strong, too. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Rift IPA finishes mostly dry.

This beer pours a bright gold with an average head. The aroma is very powerful - lemon peel, peach, watermelon, guava, and pink grapefruit. The flavor is also very expressive - pink grapefruit, guava, peach, apricot, lemon peel, mandarin orange, nectarine, and banana. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with copious fizzy carbonation. Overall this is a really excellent IPA - big step up for Central Waters on hops in my opinion.
