Ale brewed with Curacao peel.

Sometimes a lot isn’t nearly enough. For the times when a lot plus a bit more is called for we proffer the 110K+OT series. This 5th iteration is a 25 OF, 5 FG, 11% abv, 5 SRm sort of brew. If you don’t know what all that jargon means the gist of this is; it’s more than you deserve. A lot more. And a little more than that too

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange. He aroma is a little hops, but a lot of citrus. The taste has a decent amount of alcohol and a little overwhelming. The spice holds through into the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a hazy amber with a thick off white head. Thick, sweet malt body with a big tropical fruit hoppiness in the taste. Hints of orange peel and tropical fruit hops dominate the aroma. While the body is a little thick, the aroma is fabulous. Overall, quite good.

tightslice (958) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Bottle Pour at Taps Wine & Beer in Winter Park, FL. I must admit strong bias towards anything that Cigar City produces... however was a bit disappointed with this $33 bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a nice creamy head. Starts slightly bitter and moves into sweetness. Way too sweet! Was expecting something more from the bitter peels and ended up on the other side of sickening sticky, like an orange marmalade (which is really not really something I care too much for). Reminds me of a blown out version of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale (which I love because it’s much more classic and understated).

Bottle to snifter (thanks drowland). Looks good; an opaque orange with thin lacing. Smells pungent; that peel is big. Tastes pretty good too. Mouthfeel is average. Not bad.
