3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Deep golden color with a one finger white head. Good lacing. Aroma of pine, pine resin, citrus fruits and bread dough. The taste is initially pine and citrus turning to a bitter hop finish. Bread and cereal notes as well. Crisp, good carbonation. Medium light body. Lingering bitterness. Nice overall IPA from CCB.

Had this one out of the can. Pours an amber color with a nice fluffy head. This leaves a sticky lacing as you drink it. The use of dry hopping leaves a great floral flavor that is very enjoyable. This beer is well balanced and as usual, Cigar City produced another world class beer.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and slightly piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, a little fruitiness, and light dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can… Clear orange pour with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is a blend of caramel, cookie, citrus and pine. Full-bodied and almost chewy with tickling carbonation. At room temperature, this baby has a firm malt backbone, but all residual sweetness is pulverized by a heavy-handed Simcoe hop bill and schedule. Assertive, citrus rind and pith bitterness in both the flavor and lengthy finish.

Pours an orange yellow. Aroma of flowery citrus hops. Taste is lightly malted with bitter notes stretching from the first second through the taste. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear golden with some light white head. Aroma is pineapple and dirt but nothing overwhelming be that good or bad. Taste is more pineapple at the front with some maltyness midway through and some overly bitter and not pleasant aftertaste. I didn’t get a lot of tropical from this but it was still a descent IPA. Love the can!
