Can brought to me from Orlando, FL. Pours nice golden amber with a solid head. Foam leaves nice lacings on my glass. Aroma is fresh - it has bitter floral hops, fresh herbs, clearly noticeable malt backbone. This beer has some character! Taste has many dominating hop oils and resins giving this beer a resiny and oily mouthfeel. Taste is bitter at first, there are some strange tropical fruits alongside somewhat fermented pears - that are coming from the malt base I guess. Everything succumbs into quite long and lingering fruity and goya-bitter aftertaste. Great example of the style, fully enjoyable!

Super citrusy, with vivid orange blossom and mango fruit among its strong tropical fruit character. Lingers with exotic spices with the heat covered well. Long finish, a great IPA.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Canned 7/17/2015 enjoyed 8/3/2015 in a Mad Elf tulip/snifter.
Look - Carbonation exploded on me (beer before this required much heavier pour). Well over two fingers with slightly aggressive pour. Ivory head with a lot of lacing. See through orange/yellow body. Medium to thick bubbles.
Smell - Grapefruit. Other fruits I cannot distinguish between. Vanilla. Pine.
Taste - Grapefruit. Pine. Vanilla. Lime. Caramel.
Feel - Creamy. No carbonation bomb but throughout. Slight tingle on tongue.
Overall - Where is the alcohol taste? Very complex and very tasteful. On the citrus side of things. It is one thing to have two flavors with two sips but another to have multiple.

12 oz can poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Light orange color with an off-white medium head that lingers. Mango, citrus, and a hint of pine on the enticing aroma. Delicious taste of tangerine and hop bitterness with a slight malt presence in the finish. Outstanding IPA. One of the most refreshing beers Iíve ever enjoyed.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 Bottled, canned, on tap - you donít live in Tampa Bay without having this a few times. No detailed notes - just realized Iíve somehow never entered this. The other 1500 folks probably have it covered. Not my favorite CCB IPA, but itís still great.
