The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long tart guava finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was a spoil of war brought down from Anchorage’s Culmination festival.
This was poured into a snifter. Etched ever so slightly into the bottle just above the label reads "03/05/14."
There was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that concaves really nicely to leave some speckled white lacing sticking to the glass.
The smell had the Ruby Red grapefruit up front and then comes the guava with a decent dose of mango at the end.
The taste starts off just a little tart but it seems as the beer gets warmer it gets more tart and sour.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was actually fairly subdued but still showed it’s face just a tad.
Overall, it fits the bill for everything Cigar City said it should be. It is good for what it is but actually still a bit too sour and tart for my liking.
