12 oz. can poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Great lacing and some surface wisps.
Smell - Citrus. Bright orange. A little tropical fruit. Some faint cracker malt.
Taste - Citra dominated here as well. More tropical fruit, but overwhelmingly orange-y. Minimal sweetness. A little bit of that cracker malt just before it the bitterness comes to fruition. Grapefruit lingers in the back.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Bitter. Medium carbonation.
Overall - I'm really digging this one. Exceptionally good IPA from Cigar City.

Thanks to moose3285 for handing off this can during our recent Florida trip, which he made even better with his august presence. 12 oz. can hogged all to myself.
The pour is a fogged orange Florida sunset with plenty of life in it. Nose is fruity in a way that presents a moving target. Every time I think of a tropical fruit it appears as if summoned by an act of Merlin. Orange, citrus are the two that seem to keep coming back. Sweet & fruity.
Hopped on the High Seas - Citra is a tastes like a compulsive Hoarder dumped all his fruit into the mash tun. Bejesus amounts of tropical fruits pummel the palate, set off awkwardly by a moderate bitterness. Big citrus & oranges, sans rind, with a fleetingly sweet pin of caramel. Bitterness swells on the finish. Berry juicy, yet strangely dry....do I smell a new fruit? Chiquita engineers? I suppose it's drinkable. I keep sipping & sipping & sipping trying to ferret out whether I like it or not.
The quorum says yes. Not sure at first, but warmed up nicely. Not the red carpet experience that the dry-hopped version is, but a very good brew.
