Got in a trade with GreenBayBA. 12 oz bottle poured into Central Waters snifter. Pours a mango-orange glow with a creamy head of 1 finger. Stays firm at 1/2 finger.

Aroma of oranges and bitter orange rind, slight pineapple, hop funk, and beery grains.

The flavor is a bit more bitter than expected, but still rather good. Bitter orange peel, hop oils, bitter pineapple, more hop dust, slight cracker, and an aftertaste of dry hop, a lot of amarillo and some cascade, and faint sweet bread on the finish.

Feel is semi-creamy, has a tight carbonation profile but not overly prickly, and an oily, slightly dry finish.

Overall, this beer isn't half bad. I was expecting more of a tropical vibe (I wonder why) and I got a very midwestern IPA with gratuitous amarillo dry hopping. Was hoping for something a little more juicy and fruity, but that's okay, I like beer.

Where is a slightly hazy rustic Orange with lots of carbonation. A two-finger foamy White head.
Smells of bitter, Citrus Heights in plenty of malt.
Not overly bitter with citrus hops an slight pine. Orange really comes out, very slight pineapple in the finish, even more slight coconut.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium.

Looked good on paper. Smelled good in the glass with a nice pour. This just didnt come together. Bitterness is a bit off putting and seems to fight with the coconut and almost acidic citrus flavors. Mouthfeel very light, not much body.

22 oz. bottle split with my wife as Jimmy Buffet begins singing in my head. Thanks Central Waters.

The pour looks like an innocent young IPA: sunshine reflecting off of copper (probably mined within the sanctity of the BWCA watershed – fuck you, PolyMet). Uh, the nose is solid coconut cut with citrus, which gives me mixed feelings down below. Odd.

Caught in the Rain probably looked good on paper. In the glass & mouth, this doesn’t work nearly so well. Raw coconut straight off the banana tree mixes with the hops – not sure which one is bringing the hard-core bitterness, but the two are sparring like Tango & Cash. Touch of pineapple, orange, with a long, lingering resinous body that tars up the palate. Can’t imagine drinking more than half a bottle of this.

Even my Central Waters fanboydom can’t overcome the weird mingling of tastes in this beer. Coconut good, IPA good, pineapple good – throw them into the universal blender & what comes out is a sub-mediocre effort.
