Pours a nice amber color. Good head retention. Very mild nose. Earthy hops. Pine. Some citrus. I am a big fan of malty ipas and this is in there. Surprised by the consistent low ratings. It's not a super hop double as so many love. For the style, I think this is a very nice beer.

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

Look : Cider/iced tea hues and 80% opaque; shadowed fingers on the other side; popcorn colored head @ 3 fingers, lace in broken sparse Matrix patterns.

Smell : Pine resin, oil, varnish, tree. Club cracker. Weak to medium strength.

Taste : More orange than pine, although both are present. Orange peel; pine oils; biscuit; pine needles.

Feel : Slightly oily, medium bodied, bothersome carbonation. semi dry finish.

Overall : There's just not enough here to warrant a good score. If the IPA is going to be by the book and unoriginal, the least it can do is provide a clean and crisp presentation, even while oils are present. This doesn't even do that. I like Central Waters but this one is a major pass.
