3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a copper-brown color with a decent sized off white-head. Contains a fair amount of carbonation. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, fig, and alcohol. It carries the signature flavors of an IPA, namely citrus and pine. Hallmark bitterness too. A good balance b/w the malts and the hops. Medium bodied. Crisp and a bit tight on the palate. Pretty good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber, a bit hazy, nice just off-white head. Its got to have aroma, perhaps the air-conditioning is taking it away. Big mouthfeel. Hoppy, malty and full. Finishes dry, sharp and lingering hop flavor. A nice full flavor IPA

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 Orange hazy pour. Not the greatest aroma, more than made up for with the flavor. Hoppy, resinous and chewy, lots of citrus, unique malt profile. Bitter in the middle, nicely balanced with the hop flavor and malt. Nice dry finish with lingering happiness.

Bottle curtesy of Leif. The pour is cloudy amber which is pretty damn impressive for an IPA. The aroma is fruit with flavors of fruit, spice and citrus. Very delicious, very different, my first Cigar City Beer, and I am very excited.

This poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was lots of citrusy hop notes and some caramel malt too. Flavor was a bit bland compared to the nose, medium bitterness and lighter fruity hop notes but I beleive this one did have a bit of age on it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Tap at Pony Bar. Pours amber-orange with a sturdy, off-white head. Holds a powerful citrus hop aroma with sweet malt notes. Flavor is delicously sweet up front with fruit and caramel, then goes into hop land with grapefruit and pineapple predominating. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly resiney, smooth texture. Finishes with sweet and sticky bitterness. So good. (4.1)
Bottle shared at the cabin - Canaan, NH. Pours golden brown with a white head. Sugary grapefruit on the nose, light pine. Very sweet, some caramel, a bit of heavy citrus, good bitterness. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish, quite oily and resinous, with mild toast, juicy grapefruit and a bit of booze. Good in general. (3.8)
