Can from box to fridge to mouth and generously sent by Alex. Thanks again buddy! Canned on date is smudged into oblivion.

Nice hazed yellow-orange pour with a sticky long lasting fluff.

Smells of cracker and fresh citrus rind. Not so much juicy as it is a dry rindy citrus....smells fresh.

Taste and mouthfeel are of moderate thickness with a healthy drying bitterness on each sip. As in the nose, the Citra hops are not big and boisterous, but rather play a nice supporting role with the citrus a tad muted as it toils with the malt and bitterness. Lots of what I have always described as baby aspirin. I know I'm an idiot.

Cigar City just makes great beer and I'm always happy for the opportunity. A good and slightly different Citra beer that has enough going on that it doesn't just fall into the Citra bomb category.

Thanks to my girlfriend for finding this little gem in Wilkes-Barre!

Poured into tulip; translucent glowing orange/amber with a moderate white head that fades slowly into a nice ring of foam and topping.
Smell is awesome...pure citra. Sweet citrus and mango, passionfruit, grass.
Taste is huge citra hops...big citrus and tropical fruit, tons of hop resins coat the mouth, followed by a big, flat wave of vaguely piney bitterness that doesn't leave much behind. Finish is very bitter and lasting, almost numbs the roof of your mouth.
Mouthfeel is clean and smooth, with a dry bitter finish.
Overall, an awesome IPA with tons of flavor. You can really taste how much hops they packed into this beer. Delicious stuff, another hit from CCB.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - A hazy orange with an impressive one inch head. Slowly dissipates leaving a gracious amount of lacing around the glass.

Aroma - I could not stop smelling this one. Smells of fresh, dank, citrusy hops. Combination of grapefruit, orange, and a nice floral aroma. Amazing!

Taste - It was so hard to pace myself on sipping this. Just incredible citrus and dank hop flavors. Too bad I only have one can.

Mouthfeel - So smooth and drinkable. Just the right amount of bitterness on the finish. A nice medium body as well.

Overall - I've had a lot of amazing IPAs and IIPAs the last few months, but this one really stands out with the best of them. It may be my favorite brew of the year this far.

A big shout out to woodychandler for this wonderful beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with citrus and hops. Taste is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit, dry at the finish, full of flavor. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an exceptional beer worth seeking out.
