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.

Can: Looks and smells good. Light orange in color, decent head. Nose of light fruity hops. Was expecting a little more out of the taste. Not really bitter, piney or fruity... Light fruits, not bitter at all... Taste is blahh... Medium body. Overall: A really forgettable brew......

#6 canned beer today from Eric, thanks buddy! Served yet again in my GI IPA tulip: Also yet again a deep golden hue with coppery highlight topped by a nice frothy white head and very good lace. The aroma is very fruity leaning towards the tropical side of the spectrum with mangoes, peach, star fruit esters along with faint dankness, herbal and even a touch of sugary toffee notes. The taste is equally fruity with an even handed bitterness versus malty sweetness. Dry and minerally finish that even tastes slightly like clean oak tannins. Overall I do dig this quite a bit even if a tad one note, displays the hop wonderfully.

I could not get enough of this beer when it was out a ten of citrus, hay and some light malt made this beer highly crushable. Glad they are doing more in this series, wish I could have more now!

Can shared at GABF by the man himself. Thanks!! Lovely hopped beer, hinting towards the west coast style. Not crazy bitter, but quite hoppy, resin, grassy...nice stuff.

Very good beer and another one from these guys I wish we could get around here. Poured slightly warm with a large, cream-colored, thick, & fast settling to a sudsy thin cover with lots of clingy lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with a few bubble trails. Aroma is an earthy hop, malt, resin. Taste is fantastic- a perfect blend of bitter and sweet, with just enough tang. Body is great, carbonation a touch soft. Finish is like flavor, stays true all the way thru to an an average tapering end. Super drinkable beer!
