Alright, here we have the first official beer from the re-christened Brew Bus Brewing. I didn't add them as a seperate entity because it's brewed at CCB, Brew Bus considers CCB their address, and it's a recipe from the lead brewer at CCB. And let me tell you, this is the best new East Coast-style IPA I've had in a long time. People are so strung up with the west-coast IPA craze that they're ignoring their maltier brothers. It'd be a shame to ignore this one, because it's an awesome beer that has a huge East Coast style hopping helped out by just a touch of Citra to give it a modern flair. The malty backbone makes its presence known and is a pivotal part of this beer's flavor, and it's remarkably well integrated. It's rare that I write reviews these days, but this beer deserves one since I feel that it will be criminally under-appreciated. If you still dig East Coast style IPAs, do yourself a favor and pick up a sixer of Last Stop.

7% ABV listed on the 12oz can.

Pours a medium amber color with a very good white head.

Fairly strong aroma features citrus and herbal hops. Would rate higher but too much pine resin with the citrus and herbal notes.

Flavor reflects grapefruit and other citrus aspects and, like the aroma, is rather herbal. Better, however.

Lively carbonation with a palpable presence from the hops.

O: an IPA for hop heads.

With a kiss of citrus, why would any Florida brewer do anything less than a beer with citrusy influence? But Cigar City knows their vernacular ways and joins the path of their fruity origins and also the trends of which craft beer followers are drinking.

True to form, the ale pours with a hazy golden orange color. Beautiful with its diffused back light, the ale sheds a creamy blanket of foam which bridges its surface edge to edge. Long lasting in its foam stance, the ale trails with spotted leopard prints against the glass with each fleeting sip.

And those citrusy aspirations are known immediately as bright and saturated citrus character capture the scent of white and pink grapefruit with all its tangy glory. Freshly zested oranges, lemon peels and lime all fold into the sharp hoppiness while the malty scents rise from beneath with mild bread, caramel and honeycomb biscotti

What follows is an early sweetness of honey and caramel that is thin and subdued. But while its bready structure reign true afterwards, its sweetness halts and allows the hops to command its taste thereafter. Turning citrusy with grapefruit, lemon and orange in taste, the ale continues to dry as the hops develop from citrus and toward pine and grass- in the most pleasant sharpness possible to finish.

What was creamy and semi-sweet early quickly turns dry and resinous late as the ale sheds its residual sweetness and espresses its bubbles. What's left behind is a sharp acidity from hops and a resinous bittering that enhances dryness and drinkability.

It doesn't matter what anyone in Florida does to try to capture its down-home taste, but simply put- this beer wins that game! I hope I can find it everytime I visit the Sunshine State- this beer easily lives up to its aspirations!
