On draft at Huna Day. Took a sip from my buddies glass. The beer had warmed up some but I was still able to get a good amount of citrus and hoppy characters. Would like to try a bit cooler next time.

On tap at fruit in the room. Pours a hazy light gold with a thick white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and citrus with a touch of vanilla. Taste follows, good balance between fruitiness and the bitterness of the hops and oak. Very nice

Had this on tap at the brewery on #ipaday. This is one of my favorite CCB beers I have ever had. Pours amber color. Huge tropical fruit nose with lots of vanilla too. Layer upon layer of tropical fruit come thru. Pineapple, passion fruit, guava and papaya all come thru as well as the white oak. Finishes very clean.

On tap @ Pony with James and Streets 09/11/2012. Pale amber pour with no head. Aroma is woody and sweet, palate light, sweet, woody, vanilla bean. Very sweet finish. Very sharp. High carb. Definitely a curveball.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Fruit in the Room. Profile type de la Jai Alai, l’ajout de copeaux de chêne redonne un léger profile épicé boisé qui s’entremêle à une bière présentant déjà pas mal de bons points au niveau du houblonné et fruité. Le tout est très frais, et traître vu de la facilité à la boire.

Part of the IPA day celebration at CCB. Wow, this beer was amazing! Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with frothy white head and medium lacing on the way down. Aroma of zesty oak, tropical fruit, and great hops. Taste is zesty sweet from the oak, pineapple and mango from the fruit, and a hoppy back end. A quick bitter bite followed by a wonderfully balanced sweetness from the fruit. Completely amazing; I will be dreaming about this beer for a while to come.

One of the best beers I have ever had, thank you Green Room in Jacksonville Beach! This stuff is awesome, but not surprised its from Cigar City. I will try all their beers just too see if they can match this!!!

Tap at FITR. Pours a light copper with a thick off white head. Peppery, oak, tropical fruity hops in the aroma. The pepper notes come right out in the taste, but segues into loads of tropical fruit hop notes and balanced well with the smooth malt body. Finishes with a nice pepper spiciness.
