Cigar City Hopped on the High Seas

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Cigar City snifter. Served chilled... Perhaps a little too chilled. Had to let this warm a bit to really open up.

A) Hazy golden amber brew. Really not much head. Perhaps a half finger of suds, that dissipated quickly.

S) Plenty bitter initially, but after letting this rest, a pleasant tropical fruit aroma revealed itself. I got pineapple chunks, peach syrup, and light citrus.

T) Near the nose... Piney hop bitterness, lemon zest, citrus rind, balanced with a fruit cocktail sweetness. Wouldn't have guessed the ABV is 7%.

M) Lighter medium body. Lighter carbonation. It's crisp and refreshing. Bitter with a slightly dry finish.

O) A very enjoyable IPA. Glad to have given this a try. Wouldn't mind having more of this in the fridge.

12 oz can with something printed on the bottom that I cant make out. Oh Well freshness/canning date info would be nice with a beer like this....

Pours hazed medium amber, moderate off white head, that leaves nice looking fine sheeting all the way to the top of the glass.

Tropical fruit and hop resin on the noise.

Pleasingly hopped, hop character is mostly tropical fruit with some resinous qualities tossed in.

Fresh tasting, went nicely with some cheddar cheese. Worth a try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Canned on 1/30/14

A- pours a clear golden color with a two-finger creamy white head that retains long after the pour, with bubbles continuously shooting to the top

S- fruity hop aroma with notes of citrus, papaya and mango. Toasted grainy malt with some grassy aroma

T- lots of fruity flavors coming from the hops; mango and pineapple. Floral and grassy notes kick in mid-palate, leading to caramel malt and a minty and candied peach syrup finish

M- medium body with low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and slightly creamy finish, high drinkability

O- enjoyed the fruity hop flavors, unlinke most that I've had in an IPA. Enjoyed this more than the Kohatu
