COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and fermented in Puerto Rico, dry-hopped exclusively with Simcoe hops in the shipping container back to Tampa where it was canned at Cigar City Brewing. The voyage truly makes this a Caribbean-style India Pale Ale.

Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose was funky, feety, cheddar cheese, black pepper, fruity, and spicy, Tasted complex, with that awesome fruity funky Simcoe flavor, and a complex finish.

Hazy amber pour with floaties in suspension. Lots of fluffy head. Aroma isn't huge, but I'm stuffed up so it could be me. Flavor is subdued as well. This is essentially Jai Alai with a little less complexity. Palate is frothy and full. Sweet but balanced. Nice beer.

12 oz can poured into a pint. The pour is a nice light coppery gold color with a decent, quick fading white head and some gorgeous lacing. The aroma is big on citrus and hops. There is a touch of sweetness and a little bit of pine on the back end. The flavor is just as good. It's got a good boom of bitterness on the front. And then the blast of hops and citrus. The mouth feel is a little thin, but it coats the mouth beautifully. The aftertaste also lingers and lingers with a bitter hoppiness that I love. This is a solid IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, thnx to hopscotch, cheers man. Pours a clear orange beer with a small white head. Aroma is fairly earthy, grassy hops and has a nice amount of malts in the background. Flavor is nice and bitter, hoppy with an earthy touch. Little citrus detected, small touch of caramel. Short, bitter aftertaste, Decent carbo and crisp mouthfeel. Nice beer! Good to finally have an American IPA again. Nice.

Poured from a can, an orange color. Aroma is pine with a little bit of floral. Taste is bitter, more than I prefer. Not a fan of Simcoe hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a tap. Murky yellow color, full white frothy head. Light musky floral hops smell. Rich oily pine and hops flavor with a smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (623) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Aroma - piney hop with some light citrus like notes as well Apperance - color is a nice amber, the liquid a little hazy about it, the head froth and head stays around. Taste - is a nice medium bitter, delightfully complimented with an enjoyable malt and some tanginess Palate - the body is in-between light and medium, the texture on the precipice of venturing into oily, a nice appropriate carbonation, and the finish is bitter and long

Orange-colored body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, floral notes. Medium bodied, assertive bitterness, appropriate carbonation.

Can at Rattle n Hum in NYC. Copper/orange, mostly clear. Offwhite head, nice lacing. Love the aroma from the dry hopped simcoe. Floral, tropical fruit, grapefruit. As the beer warms the caramel malt is more prevalent. Taste is mildly bitter - nice citrus balanced with caramel malt. Medium body, soft carbo. Nice ipa.
