On draft at Cigar City Tap Room. Another pale that really didn’t have too many thrills going on. Yet it’s still a solid showing with nice hoppy characters and slight floral aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Tampa airport: Pours a clear deep bronze with a small froth of clingy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some herbal cedar and a touch of piny hops. Body starts with decent fullness and carbonation with a light sweetness and some grainy notes along with a good amount of hop bitterness before a drier, bittersweet finish. Fairly smooth, but could use some more flavor and aroma hops.
