Can. Pours golden yellow with white head. Aroma is strong tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, little pine, little sweetness. Taste is mild, fruity hops, little pine notes. Hops stick around just for a bit, then fade into the background. I picture myself sitting on a beach drinking this... then drinking more of it. Very nice pale ale.

More hops than any other pale I’ve tasted. Big on aroma, smooth and easy bitterness. Juicy malt and hop flavors swirl into my brain. I’ll coin a new style name - Imperial Session IPA. (Not to be confused with a Session Imperial IPA, totally different.)

Awesome pale ale that is easy drinking and loaded with flavor. Aroma is bursting with fruity hops. Taste is smooth but complex fruit hop flavor accented by a nice sweetness. Finish is smooth and refreshing. You just can’t stop drinking this...invasion...

Cigar City Invasion Pale Ale has a thick, spongy, white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance with powdery sediment suspended throughout, and lots of heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is bursting with juicy hop resin, and one will notice a background white bread aspect. Taste is of citrus, hop resin, and white bread. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Cigar City Invasion Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and super drinkable. RJT

Fresh can into a glass. Pretty clean goldish orange pour with a lasting bit of white head. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropic fruits, and pine. Taste is similar with a nice balance of bitter and a bit of cereal malt. Real easy drinking.

Draft at Kickbacks in Jax,FL. The APA poured a lightly hazy gold color with an off white head and lacing. Mild citrus hops detected on the nose. A very easy ale to drink not complex. There was dry mouthful feeling with a hint of resiny hops. The ale has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish was easy with only mild bitterness.
