4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy yellow orange with a large off-white head. Smells strongly of pine. Taste is piney, bitter, little malt sweetness. Medium-bodied with smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Invasion Pale Ale finishes with a lingering pine bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has that great Cigar City developed aroma of citrus and hops.
Appearance- A murky golden yellow to orange with sediment floating in the glass, very cool.
Taste- Has an overwhelming citrus and hop flavor, if you aren’t an IPA fan this may be a little to hoppy for some.
Palate- A medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation and an oily feel. has a very nice feel to it.
Overall- A strong IPA, it is enjoyable and I will drink this again..

Can JB brought back from Florida, The APA poured a lightly hazy gold color with an off white head and lacing. Great aroma of Pine emanating from this pour. A very easy ale to drink not complex. There was dry mouthful feeling with some resiny hops. The ale has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish was easy with only mild bitterness. Thanks for the trade JB.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can into Belgian glass. Thanks dean. Pours a glowing orange/ amber fire. Wonderful thick head, fluffed white clouds, lacing all over. Aroma of a citrus haven, pine, sap, juicy hops, this has IPA stature all over it. Taste of hop blast, orange peel, fields of melon, orange marmalade, more hops. Soft dry bitter finish, hoppy leftovers. Best pale I’ve yet to have.

Can. Big grapefruit nose. Slight hazy gold with white head and some retention. Palate is flavorful and clean. Fruity smoky and dry. Overrated maybe.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong grapefruit aroma overlaying floral and pine IPA like notes. Hazy, bubbly orange, plenty of head regardless of pour. Great mix of citric flavors with sweeter stuff, mangoes and such. Soft body, drinks well but may become filling.
