Very good aroma. Nice citrus and fruity aroma. Very good grapefruit nose. Enjoyed a couple, purchased in the Marketplace at a resort hotel in Orlando, and was surprised to see it was canned 9 days ago. Very fresh! I REALLY liked it, and I love IPA’s. not a killer hoppy beer, so my wife could enjoy it also. Pretty rare that happens since she usually doesn’t like the hoppy beers that I enjoy. This was a perfect beer for us as I didn’t have to settle for a "compromise" beer. I’ll buy more to send home since I suspect I can only buy it in Florida........for now. Something this good needs distribution everywhere!

Fresh can, a few weeks old. Orange color with small white head an little lacing. Aroma and flavor are full of citrusy hops with light pine notes, a bit of spicyness and mixed vegetables at the end. Good smooth malts balance it out, making a refreshing, crisp, overall pretty good ipa.

Can from Eelbasher, thanks! Orange golden with a slighly offwhite head. Aroma of cereal, grass and citrus. Hoppy, but not at all bitter. Citrus forward, with a little grassyness and sour orange juice (in a good way) on the finish. Quite good!

Pours an amber color with a foamy white head. Great aroma of citrus, floral notes and typical herbal notes. Hops everywhere! Same goes for the taste, hops, hops and hops. Biting finish!

Can. Two days old. Pours deep amber color with thin to medium lacing. Smells of citrus, pine, pineapple, and grapefruit. Great hop bite up front tasting of grapefruit, orange, and pineapple with sweet maltly, slightly dry, ending in caramel, mango, peach. Balanced but leaning towards the sweeter side.

From a 12oz can into a snifter. Pours as a slightly hazy amber/orange with a medium sized but quickly dissipating off-white head with decent lacing. Aroma is floral with caramel, light citrus, light pine and fruity notes. Taste is slightly sweet up front with floral notes, caramel, light fruity notes, citrusy orange and grapefruit-like bitterness and light hoppy bitterness. The bitterness and malt sweetness are almost perfectly balanced. This finish is a very pleasant lingering orange-peel and hop bitterness. Mouth feel has moderate carbonation and a slight oily slickness and medium-light body. Very thirst quenching. The 7.5%abv is almost totally hidden by the malt sweetness in this extraordinarily drinkable beer. This is one of the great IPA's I have tasted. I am thoroughly impressed by Cigar City. I have yet to taste a beer from this brewery that is not outstanding.

Can. Pours a hazy orange color with a nice, white, laced head. Strong, floral aroma with some grapefruit and a subtle sense of hops. Amazing balance between the hops and the strong tartness. Does not seem like a 7.5% beer. And hard to imagine a beer in a can would taste this amazing. Cigar City is impressing me more and more!

Pours an amber color with a foamy white head that never goes away. The smell is fantastic; could smell the hops instantly upon opening the can. Taste is a wonderful hoppy and floral front with a biting finish. Surprisingly smooth however. Great, great brew. Lives up to the hype!

Good beer. Poured from the can into a glass. Comes out a nice golden type color with minimal head. You can immediately begin to smell the hops. Very citrusy. The taste is just like it smells. Very hoppy with just the right amount of kick. If you like hops and you enjoy a great ipa, this is your choice.
