Pours a murky golden orange with a shirt lived off-white head. Head fades to nothing on top at all. Dried citrus, cream, and apricot medley on the nose. Full and oily with a nice lively carbonation for balance. Dried apricot and a little pine in the flavor. Ample, persistent bitterness.

Growler @ Lost Abbey. Thanks to Sean for sending this my way. Orange pour with a finger of white foam. Huge pine, orange marmalade, and herbal hop nose. Some caramel, brown sugar, and mango as well. There’s a mild sweetness of caramel and marmalade up front. Bitter pine, herbs, and wood on the finish. Some orange and mango fruitiness, along with a touch of grapefruit.

Pours a light golden color, clear and almost glowing. Aroma is strong, fresh hops, taste is spectacular. Hops are strong but not obnoxious.
So far, this is my favorite Cigar City beer.

Draft at brewey. Nose is catty and piney. A little earthy. Taste is initially sweet with some bitterness. Kind if messy. Not sure about the hops on this one. Kinda comes together as you drink it.

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the Cigar City Taproom. Medium golden pour, light off-white head sticky head that dissipates quickly but leaves a decent coat of lacing. Aroma is subtle but nice - pick up some brief perfumey floral notes. Interesting, complex flavor. Pick up some honey, light citrus, bit of butter, faint spiciness, and a delicious underlying subtle bitterness. Mouthfeel has a nice thick texture. Solid entrant from the folks at Cigar City.

On tap at the brewery. Gold pour. Aroma is tropical fruit, floral. Tastes are well rounded fruit, big bitter, light vegetal. Hides alcohol very well. Nice. 7.4

This is a very special IIPA poured only at the brewery...WOW! It is so well balanced and just the right amount of floral & citrus hops with a biscuit malt backbone. I had to buy a growler so I could have more for later!
