Interesting dirty citrus and orange aroma. Hazy dusted gold with white head and large bubbles. Great sweet malt balancing out with the bitterness, which is actually restrained for my left coast palate. Orange and slight dirt....terroir. Medium-thin mouthfeel.

Clear copper, fruity citrus aroma, somewhat sweet, orange. Taste is fruity with lots of orange (I’ve never had a kumquat before so can’t honestly say that I get any), also hoppy with some citrus and light herbal notes. nice hoppy finish.

Draft @ RNH. Bright orange color. Smells of orange and citrus. Sweet with a hoppy aftertaste. Sweeter then the peach IPA but not as good IMO. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Rattle n Hum. This definitely fell into that "indistinguishable" category for some of the Cigar City treatments that don’t end up offering much they haven’t done before. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma has notes of floral hops, perfume, and some fruit (I guess orange). Spruce and honey first and foremost in the flavor, followed by some fruit. Admittedly not one of my favorites.

Rattle N Hum, Cigar City smokes NYC event. The aroma of oranges, orange colour, and a sizeable head. As if kumquat orange was a substitute for the regular jai alai grapefruit.A little tart as well as hoppy.
