A go-to IPA whenever I can find it. Clear crisp amber color. Sweet malts, resins, floral tones, and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste follows as incredible balanced bitterness and citrus. Medium body, but works for this IPA. Great stuff!

Grifo. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en ene´12. Color ambar y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca y algodonada. En nariz aromas de maltas dulces y fruta tropical, resinas y lúpulos florales. Sabor amargo seco, ligeramente afrutada con trazos de maltas. Paladar voluptuoso. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Final cítrico y retrogusto afrutado. Refrescante aunque algo pesada.

Cask. Pours as a clear gold beet with minimal head. Aroma is flowery with a weak head. Slight citrus flavors but overall nothing special. Flavour has some spicy, orange, tangerine and hint odd liquor. Quite longlasting dry aftertaste.

This is one of Cigar City’s signature beers and like most CC beers, you can’t go wrong. Not too much bitterness but some nice floral flavors. Light aroma of floral.

Thanks to Cristy for grabbing this bottle for me at the brewery! Pours a hazy dark golden color with generous frothy and soapy head. Strong citrusy and pine hoppy aroma. Nice flavor profile, hoppy and bitter with lemony notes and a sharp lingering pine finish. A very good IPA.

On tap from my kegerator, keg filled days ago, picked up from ccb. Poured into my ccb pint glass, orange amber with a sticky two finger head. Lacing is crazy on this one, beautiful beer. Aroma of citrus, floral hops and tropical fruits, this is a very complex ipa. Taste follows the nose, again this is very complex, it borders on a dipa, very intense. Mouthfeel is moderate, smooth with substance. Overall this is the beer that made me fall in love with craft beer. Jai Alai is right up with any of the super-hyped ipa/dipas!

Strong Citrus & Floral Hops, Yeasts all backed up by a strong malty backbone. While the body is on the heavier side, it’s got a very creamy feeling palate, which makes this enjoyable to drink! Another excellent IPA worth checking out!
