look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

The bubbles/carbonation are very fine on this beer, almost sharp. It is definitely dry hopped but seems as if hopped very little during the boil. There is not a strong hop flavor up front, but a larger one as an aftertaste. Still not as strong as the smell is. The packaging is awesome though. Six pack cans in a new kind of holder that protects the tops from dirt and such. Not worth the the $14 for the six pack in my opinion, but I am glad I tried it. I would definitely rank this as a lighter IPA. The can says Caribbean Style IPA and that is a dead on description.

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.

3.83/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

appearance: Dark gold, mostly clear. Nice fat white head on the pour that settles to a pretty thick lingering head.
smell: Not getting the "bright tropical aroma" Cigar City advertises, at least not up front. A little darker and dankier. Maybe the tropical thing will show stronger as it warms.
taste: Hoppy, tropical and dry. Crisp. Not sure if i'm projecting here based on the High Seas thing but I'm getting salt in there too.
overall: Very nice and different IPA in a market flooded by IPA's. Well done.
