COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re about to light up Florida with this Cigar City collaborative brew. Our Belgian yeast tangos with Anaheim and Marash peppers along with loads of citrusy hops to create an ale full of spice. Aged on Spanish cedar to salute our mutual love for wood!

Pours a really nice orange, nice head, and the chilies aren’t overpowering giving it a very nice finish to the palate. Wish I would of got more on my trip to Florida.

Absolutely wonderful. I'm getting a slight undercurrent of cherries, perfectly balanced by a peppery infusion. Very drinkable, and recommended highly. A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shot (157) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
On tap at World of Beer. Golden orange color with a creamy head. Citrus aromas. Flavors of Belgian yeast and clove, but also citrus hops. Finishes with orange peel and a hint of hot peppers. Very interesting beer. Refreshing. Very citrusy. Complex. This is like a Blue Moon, but much higher quality, and then there’s the whisper of hot pepper. Very interesting. I really like this one.

The body was clear, orange amber, and the carbonation was lively, forming a two finger thick head in the tulip glass. The aroma was very tropical, reminding me of both mango and passion fruit. The taste was layered, with the first impression being a weaker IPA like herbal hop presence, but then the hints of chili peppers poked out. The finish had a bit of vanilla beans in it. The beer did feel lacking in the texture, as it felt a little watered down and over attenuated. I would have liked it to have some sticky feel to it, as it would have med the flavors linger better. I was happy I tried this once, but it’s not something I would go out of my way to find again.

Bomber. Once poured, this beer is a light golden brown and gives off a nice aroma of malt and hops. Tastes somewhat spicy, with nice amounts of alcohol coming through. The palate definitely warms when this beer is consumed, nicely done!

So, this beer is a bit of an anomaly. The aroma is extremely subtle, yet inviting. Where most chili infused beers finish with heat, the kick in this beer is up front, though it’s not overwhelming. There are all sorts of complexities playing together here; it’s medium body light bitterness allow the Spanish cedar to have a prominent role...all in all, it is a very unique beer. We’d expect nothing less from Cigar City and New Belgium...

bottle. I absolutely loved this beer and didn’t expect to - at all. Crazy combo of yeast/chilli pepper/hops. Unique in many ways with the spiciness and great finish. Love this one!
