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.

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.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from BoostIPA. Aroma is nice tropical hops, flavor is similar. Too simcoey, but still a nice beer.

thome50 (1229) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
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!

The aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, caramel. The appearance is amber, white head. The flavor is tropical fruit, peach, citrus, caramel. The finish is citrus. Medium in body. Nicely done overall.

Smooth, lightly floral hoppiness that balances with grass and earthy flavors. Some hints of citrus zest, tapering finish.

wheresyourball (539) - El Cajon, California, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Can from a trade. Pours a clear yellow/orange. Nose is very tropical, sweeter than Jai Alai - mango and pineapple, also with pine and grass. Flavor starts out tropical sweet with mild malt and hoppiness, Good carbonation. Good, interesting IPA.

Overall pretty good IPA here. The simcoe hops obviously shine in this brew. Aroma is not as hoppy as the taste, great mouthfeel on this one. Taste is bitter resinous simcoe Hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
