Clear deep golden with a small white head. malty caramel aroma, grassy and citrus hops. the aroma is a little bit dull. Maybe the brew isnt too fresh, but i cant see the production date. Nice powerfull wellbalanced flavor. Caramel sweet, hop and alchohol bitter leading to a bitter finish.

I really love this beer and it is even better in the white oak version. I bought one today because I had not enjoyed one in quite a while and it was wonderful as always =D This would have to be one of my top beers because it is very hoppy and it is also smooth and refreshing. If you want a good IPA give this one a try...

Finally got to taste a Cigar City ale. It certainly did not disappoint. At 7.5 this is nearly an IIPA and drinks slowly. Had opposite to the De Molen Flame and whatever it’s called, this definitely came across more rudely, in a good way. Read some of the other 650 reviews for more detail. It’s good.

Pours a generally clear dark orange amber with a thin white foamy head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of ripe fresh fruit, apricots, pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, some faint spice. Flavor is also sweet and floral with stronger floral hops notes, pine, apricots, citrus, grapefruit, some faint spice. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a bitter hoppy finish. Well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange and shiny. Appearance is great!
Fruit & spice: peach, nutmeg and cloves. Punchy aromas but not so complex.
Thin bubbles and velvety texture. Good palate.
Nice character but a bit too spicy and heavy flavours. Not very subtle.
Well brewed but not my favorite.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark orange-amber color with thin white beaded head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, green bananas, and mangos. Taste is very fruity with hints of citrus, grapefruit, and tropical fruit with an adequate malt backbone and substantial hop bitterness. A really well-rounded IPA.

Thanks JoeMcPhee for the beer. Hazy orange glow with a frothy white head. Fantastic fruit gum, graperuit hop aroma. Initial rich fruit flavour. Silky texture with a very bitter tangy finish. Sharp bitter, spicy finish.
