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.

from a can thanks Andy. pours a medium gold with a nice white head and good lacing. nose is pine and orange with some medium caramel malts. a bunch of orange and a strong bitterness in the flavor with an awful lot of malt character. finish is a bit more bitter than I would like.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Citric, spicy and grassy, with lighter sweet malty notes. Not bad.

Can @ home, courtesy of BlackIPA. Thanks! This probably needs to be aliased to the other Hopped on the High Seas entry. Pours a touch hazy dark orange appearance with a creamy, cream colored head. Spicy tropical fruity, grapefruity, pineapple, grassy aroma. Piney, a bit resiny, pineapple, light bubblegum, slight toasted, biscuity malty flavor with light bitterness and some fruit on the finish. Not bad.

Cigar City Dry-Hopped on the High Seas is a good quality, sessionable IPA. Pour is a deep amber but translucent with a decent head. Aroma is moderately strong scent of floral and tropical fruit. Medium bitterness to taste with a nice hop floral secondary. Dry-Hopped on the High Seas is a solid example of the style but not particularly a standout or unusually unique.

From a can purchased at The Greeks in Narberth. Very nondescript. Not much to say about it. Meh. I prefer JaiLai. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can in a trade with Darren. Can stamped with a date of 3 October 2013.The color is a clear copper with white head and weak spotty lacing. Nose is all traits of Simcoe. Pine, musty grass and citrus. I was expecting a big Simcoe bomb and got more sweetness then I had thought. Caramel and toffee with lots of tropical fruits. Mango, peach and grapefruity hints. Light lingering bitterness. Not sure where the Caribbean-style influences are in this brew?? Still a nice drink.
