Well I wanted my 1900th review to be special so I guess with such a high review this one is good enough. $3.50 for the single.

A - You can tell its dry hopped since how hazy this amber brew is. Head is massive full inch plus that sticks around for a while,
S - Juicy and mildly nostril stinging Citra Hops. Pineapple and lemon peel smell is balanced with the malts though gram cracker goodness.
T - Not super bitter balanced herbal hops meets citrus and mango hops. Balanced malts and tea leaves herbal ness buried underneath in all its very good. Reminds me of Sculpin in a way.
M - Not super easy to drink but for around 7% this beer drinks well. Balanced flavor the entire visit.

Overall I will not say this beer blew my mind since a lot of breweries are using Citra hops and making very balanced IPA's. This is a very solid beer regardless. I think the only deterant is the price which is on par with Sculpin.

3.5/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured can into a 15 ounce glass. Golden, copper color with a huge lingering off white head. This is the best quality of this beer from an entertainment point of view. The creamy head slowly dissipates until only a single mountainous island is left in the middle of the glass.

S: Hints of Banana, grapefruit, lemons and prevalent hops.

T: The taste remaining from the ahtanum hops is truly unique. Bitter, but not off putting.

M: Bitterness on the tongue, but not overwhelming.

O: To me this is a good beer which is made better with a supporting cast of the right foods. Solid IPA, but nothing from a taste point of view that makes it stand out.

12oz can poured into a tulip pint.
Dry-hopped with Ahtanum.

Appearance
Gold with 2 fingers of fluffy, off-white head. Excellent clarity with low carbonation.

Nose
Pineapple, lemon, pink grapefruit and candy sugar.

Taste
Biscuity and bready malts with touches of candy sugar. Pineapple, pink grapefruit and florals. Quite a bit of residual sugar lingers on.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp and moderately bitter.

Overall
Easy drinking and rather standard IPA. I expect more from Cigar City.
