Central Waters Illumination Double IPA

Been on a Cigar City roll lately, so I thought it was time to mix up. Going back to a familiar state for American craft beer 224: Wisconsin. I promise this will not start another Wisconsin kick since I have had at least one of those in the past.

Illumination Double IPA by Central Waters Brewing Company came by way of a co-worker of my wife’s. I have given him home brew and American craft beer in the past, so I believe this is the repayment.

Citrus and tropical hops abound in Illumination: both on the nose and mouth. Caramel malt gives some sweetness and slight bread for balance. There is a bitterness in the finish that doesn’t ruin the palate, it seems the combination of hops are gentle here. A really solid offering. Enjoy!

Aroma: 10 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.3

Useless Fact: The average person can live for eleven days without water, assuming a mean temperature of 60° F.
