Pours a deep orange amber. KInd of sweet and syrupy but citrusy at the same time, that balances well. Seems I got a fresh one! I guess Raul the Quality control guy was not passed out when they bottled this batch!
No volcano of beer here! Overall very satisfying, a big thumbs up! Thanks Cigar City!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap flight at the brewery. Lucious amber pour. Syrupy and glowing with a thin white head. Aroma of mangoes and papaya; very tropical. Taste is tropical fruit, citrus zest, and flowers. Boozy but hoppy. Well made and wild thy of aging about 6-9 months.

Beautiful deep slighty hazy orange color. Citrusy, sweet and grapefruit in the nose. Sweet, hoppy, but not overpowering. Finishes slightly bitter but smooth. Very good CCB beer.

Snifter pour at the brewery. Pours a burnt orange-amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is mild to me, citrus, grapefruit, light hop and mild bitterness. Flavor is super juicy, sweet, grapefruit and orange. Not overly hoppy, but smooth and not bad for 11%. Drinkable, but not my favorite.

(Tap at CCB) One of my favorite offerings from CCB. Hazy orange pour with white head. Aroma and taste are of citrus orange/grapefruit and some pine. High ABV is well hidden. Strong touch of sweetness that really made this beer stand out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of jdubfl. Cheers, Justin! Pours a deep orange color with a white head. Nose is a citrus bomb: grapefruit, apricot, peach, and oranges with hints of dried oranges and some zest. Flavor delivers exactly what the nose promises: citrus and more citrus with oranges and apricots, peaches and orange peel and a finish of orange peel and semi-sweet citrus. Palate is very sweet and leans heavily toward sweetness. Medium in body and citrusy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at CCB, poured an amber color with huge aromas of grapefruit, and hop juice. Flavor is majority hops, grapefruit, some pine resin, and huge sweet aftertaste. For it to be such a huge abv would not of thought the sweetness would be so much, was hoping for some more bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CCB. Nose is pure hops and citrus. Loads of grapefruit, apricot, and orange aromas with some light guava A touch of pine. Very aromatic. Pour is amber colored with a white-ish head. This one was overly sweet for me. Still, tons of hops and citrus all the way. Good but not something I could drink much of due to the almost cloying sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Out pours this murky orange brew with a pretty thick head. The smell is fresh of hops, lemongrass, honeydew and grapefruit. Sip. What a treat for a hop head, the taste is explosive! There are lots of almost earthy hops with a robust grapefruit presence. Undertones are fairly malty and sweet; lots of honey, granola and bread. Almost too sweet, Iíd hate to say - but an adventure nonetheless.
