3.63/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours an unassuming half finger of pure white foam, even surface, fairly dense weave, good retention given it doesn’t start from much, the lacing has super stickiness, forms solid rings around the glass sides. Mild filminess to the deep golden hue, the bubbles are tiny but fill the glass from side to side, only the merest yellowing at the rims, looks like it wants to be taken seriously. While the nose has a sweeter base in orange and grapefruit citrus, it leaps at you with leafy herbaceous matter, pepper and biscuit, some black tea leaf, it’s fruity with peach, apricot, pineapple notes but never seems sweet nor juicy, minerally, what it may lack in complexity it more than makes up for with raw power. In the mouth it’s full-bodied, quite dry with a tacky, sticky mouth feel. The pink and white grapefruit, blood orange citrus more zest than pulp, any pine sap or florality no match for the peppery to minerally bite and crisp leafy earthiness, some tar or charcoal accents mixed in. The papaya, pineapple, nectarine fruit fights like the dickens but does not reach the finish line, adding to its overall bitterness. The carbonation is taut and keeps the rhythm up tempo. Not particularly longlasting at the end, can’t call it a casual sipper but clean and direct enough to serve well as a food beer.

Yes, this is another canned beer provided by the legend of canned beer, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, a touch of citrus. Taste is hoppy, some bitterness, piney, just a touch of hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but there are better IPA's brewed by Cigar City.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Love this brewer
A - long standing islands of creamy foam and lace on top of a hazy apricot body.

S - Pertinent to the tropics: tropical fruit up front - mangos with pineapple, citrus, flowers, flower shop, and a bit of baked bread.

T - Follows smell but more pronounced floral hop, then completing more bitter than the aroma. The bitterness and finish is a bit soapy, sudsy. clammy.

M - Medium, bitter, slightly medicinal. lingering cloudy, sudsy finish mars it.

O - Nice profile, but not a great finish.
