Pours gold, large white head. Nose is huge citrus, pine, grapefruit, malts, grainy, hints of lime peel. Flavor is much the same. Super drinkable (hate that phrase, but it is). Winner from CCB despite itís ridiculous name.

On tap at Whole Foods, Orlando, pours a rusty orange color with a nice creamy head. Nose is all citrus with a predominance of fresh peaches. Taste is bitter and hoppy, and full of citrus with peaches and a bit of lemon. Finishes on the same hoppy bitter citrus notes. A truly wonderful APA.

Pours a deep hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma, wow this is very hoppy, citrus grapefruit juice. Taste follows, really bitter yet refreshing. Nice pale ale from hill farm... I mean Cigar City!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a. Hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is light lemon with a grassy, piney burst of hops. Flavor follows with a nice mild body and big hop burst with flavorful pacific rim hops. A masterful pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Whole Foods Orlandp. Pours orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and peaches. Taste is sweet, hops, peaches, citrus, and grapefruit with a bitter, smooth finish. Very drinkable, delicious pale ale.

32oz swing top growler sent to me courtesy of THE markwise. Thanks Mark. It pours deep gold with an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened rich tangerine, clementine and grapefruit pith. The taste is pretty rich for the style and remains fresh and sessionable. I get rich citrus tangerine and malt sweetened grapefruit citrus hopppiness. The flavor then rolls into increasing levels of citrus hop bitterness allowing for a crisp and semi dry finish.

Copper pour, white head. I get nice citrus notes, some light malty sweetness, bread and yeast notes peek out, finishes a tad bitter. Damn good!

Draft. Hazy straw gold pour, white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of grass, mango, melon, cracker. Taste is cracker, tropical/melon hops, pineapple, light bitterness. Palate is dry, soft, light bitter finish. Very good.

Gooooood stuff. Nose is grassy, with light citrus, some floral qualities. Pour is yellow with a white head. Tastes dry with a nice dank/grassy hop backbone. Light wheat flavor with more hops and some light citrus. Awesome stuff.

Growler from Cigar City. The pour is a slightly murky gold with a flimsy white head that leaves a spot of lacing here and there. Thereís a floral and citrusy aroma with a touch of grass as well. Pineapple stands out with perhaps some mango and coconut. This is light in the body and easy drinking with crisp citrusy and grassy hop flavors. Once again, Iím getting quite a bit of tropical fruit here that seems centered around pineapple. Bitter and dry towards the back end with a grassy and herbal character. Thereís some slick sweet malt support but not at all hefty allowing this to go down rather easily and quickly. Maybe it wonít wow but this is really solid stuff here.
