4.18/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I always give a glance at the cigar city brewing section of my local bottle shop just to see if I find something new. Then a couple of days ago, there it was.

A shiny silver can, with those blasted hard plastic tops holding the six together. Brew Bus Brewing. I'm not really into the comings and goings of the brewing world, but I was curious... what is this? It says "Brewed and canned by Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, FL for The Brew Bus, Tampa, FL." Auto-grab for me, as I love to support the local guys if I can.

After fighting the can off of the dreaded plastic do-hicky (What? I can't figure the thing out man!) I poured this into my pint glass. A nice frothy two finger head. Light golden in color. Throughout the session, the lacing was optimal.

Smell: The usual suspects here. Citrus, grapefruit, and floral notes. Nothing that stands out, but it lasted throughout. It never fell off, which is always awesome in my book.

Taste: The first thing that struck me was the balance. Bitter? Yes. But it has a very good malty backing that really makes it sweet at the end.

Feel: Very light in feel. If I were comparing it to say Jai Alai, where it has a bit of heaviness to it, in all it's awesome glory, this has a lot in common with that, but the feel. Very light textured, and for it being a 7% brew, there was nothing noticed on the abv. A very sneaky brew to be sure.

Overall: I'd be interested to know more about how involved CCB is with this, as it taste, to me anyway, very much like a Jai Alai. The feel is the only thing that was different. Next time, I'm going to grab a six of both and do a side-by-side. But either way, another great addition for us Florida guys and gals!
