Pours with a touch of chill haze. An inch of white foam is rather fleeting. Lacing is sticky, throughout and sporadic.
Aroma is thick with tropical fruits. Pineapple, melon, mango and grapefruit. Dank pine. Malt takes a back seat but pale sweetness creates the backbone: simple.
Taste doesn't bring it like the aroma but is still solid. Lightly sweet up front, mingling with a transition to hops in the middle. More tropical fruit (grapefruit, mango and pineapple), splashed with pine. Finishes towards the dry side. Bitterness that lingers and builds throughout.
Medium body with a well balanced carbonation. Dries the palate.
Haven't had a Central Waters beer in while, let alone a limited release. A solid APA. If I would have known it would have been this good, I would have picked up several more. The hops seem to be lead by citra. Always strikes a cord with me. Get it before it gets old. Drinking well right now. Enjoy!
