2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Cigar City for IPA Day. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is slight (read teeny tiny) caramel with huge cucumber essence. Flavor is similar- cucumber with hints of IPA, but very little hops and very little caramel coming through the cuke cavalcade.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
IPA Day at CCB. Pours a clear copperish orange on tap with a dissipating, thin white head and lots of lacing on the way down. Aroma is overpoweringly cucumber, with a slight touch of hops trying to poke its way through. Taste is pretty similar, with a slightly bitter back end and a clean mouth, like an intense cucumber salad. All that is memorable is the overpowering quality of the cucumber, but its a nice light IPA that changed the pace on the day.

Pours orange. Thin head. Nose is giant cucumber. Impossible amount of cucumber. Overwhelming cucumber. Flavor is exactly the same. Good lord. Got to be a bit much after a few sips.
