Bottle at Olympen. Amber colour, stable head. Sweet fruity aroma. Some tropical fruits, fudge, little bitterness. A disappointment.

20oz imperial pint, on tap at the Sarasota brewpub. Was labeled simply, "Cigar City IPA". Nice, thin off-white head leaing good lace. Nice, crisp carbonation, dry texture, lighter body. Friends thought it was "mild" compared to Sarasota’s IPA (as in, more drinkable). Very nice bitter taste. Great, piney fresh tropical citrus aroma. I really like this IPA.

Bottle 12 fl.oz from erzbierschof.ch. Immediat scents of fruits, citrus, resin, pine in that beer, coppery veiled with pale yellow head, but it’s not excessive. It’s maybe a limite nevertheless, jam of hops-pineapple-peach-grapefruit. A fine carbonation gives lightness. There are notes of toffy, herbs, lemob and medicament too, fruity finale all in bitterness.

Good if unremarkable west coast IPA. There's little point in paying premium import prices for this type of beer when local breweries like the kernel do them just as well if not better. Looking forward to trying other more adventurous styles by cigar city though.

Pours deep golden with small white head. Little lacing, heavy body, resinous texture, and pine aroma. Taste is caramel malt, some grapefruit, and strong long pine finish. Not a fan of the pine and expected more from this one.

a lovely copper color, mostly white head. Bright green hops aroma, seems a mixture of dusty European hops and piney american resin. Strong malt spine and bracing bitterness, smooth and full bodied and a archetypal IPA. Very nice, city. forward to more from cigar city.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is bitter, spicy, hoppy, floral and oddly - a little bit of sour tang. Bitter hops dominate. Pours out a crisp orange with a bit of white foam that lingers and laces. Taste is thoroughly bitter, not as complex as the nose. A bit of malt, but mostly pine and hoppy bitterness. Palate is solid - medium bodied and crisp. Solid IPA, but not going to replace my favorites.
