look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the can into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Canned Dec 20th 2013.

A Bronze and very bright orange body but a little bit cloudy strangely, with lots of fast rising thin carbonation. Head is four fingers, a little off white and thick shampoo retention and clumping.

Nose is interesting for a hop angle. Interesting smoke earth, a possible hint of citrus fruit. A little buried and subtle though. Some time the aromas are a little more noticeable with a nice orange tangerine sweetness.

A real wonderful nice juicy and full palate. Great mouthfeel that coats, nice thickness without a lot of syrup sugar sweetness and brings the flavors out nicely. Cool mint and refeshing hop aromatics on the mid palate, the tangerine and bitterness matches with a good slick malt sweetness. Complimenting earth like hop and pine aromatics on the swallow linger nicely after finishing, with some great minty mouthwash freshness to boot.

So incredibly easy drinking, and I love this hinting creamy full perfect mouthfeel.

Can snagged from Gator Beverage. Pours very clear golden with a nice white fluffy head. Dank and grass aroma, pine, some floral notes unique aroma and this is a new hop to me. Flavor is earthy and a bit muddled with an awfully dirty unpleasant finish like a cheap wheat ale. I get the dirty finish from all of those in this series but this takes it to a new level. Some light sweetness and mostly like biting into a pile of dirt and dead grass. Resinous and medium carbonation with a slick mouthfeel. Really not feeling this one.

Clear golden hue with bright white craggy head. Lots of citrus fruits on the nose, lemon zest and tangerine. Very oragney. On the lighter side of being medium bodied with brisk carbonation. Sweet citrus fruits through with sweet bready undertones. Bitterness is pretty high. A littler hebal and earthy on the back end. Lots of citric rind bitterness. Sweet breads combined with hearty herbal bitterness and bitter sweet citric marmalade. Pretty good.

12oz can poured into a tulip pint.
Dry-hopped with Ahtanum.

Gold with 2 fingers of fluffy, off-white head. Excellent clarity with low carbonation.

Pineapple, lemon, pink grapefruit and candy sugar.

Biscuity and bready malts with touches of candy sugar. Pineapple, pink grapefruit and florals. Quite a bit of residual sugar lingers on.

Medium bodied, crisp and moderately bitter.

Easy drinking and rather standard IPA. I expect more from Cigar City.
