Appearance – This one had a beutiful pour with a cloudy orangish-brown color and a a brownish-white head that showed great retention.

Smell – The aroma of stiff hop isn’t explosive but very strong and fruity with a dull bitter promise.

Taste – The promise from the nose delivers at the taste. This is a bitter hop monster with some good citrus, strong but not overly aggressive pine, and malty sugars. It is balanced towrds bittering hops but otherwise very comfortable in the mouth. If we’re considering personal preferences here this is exactly how I like my DIPAs.

Mouthfeel – It isn’t full-bodied but close with a strong bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability – I would say it is probably just beyond the reach of a novice drinker but for the heavy-duty hop lover it is right on.

Shared large bottle of Cigar City Florida Man.

Flavor: Mildly bitter and slightly more sour.

Aroma: Fruity but nonetheless it has somewhat limited appeal.

Glad I tried it but not to what I've come to expect from CC. Certainly OK. I would probably not buy it again

Heavy on the malt. Taste is a bit too sweet. Nose is sweet and sour. Not a bad beer but far from excellent. I want DIPA's that are bright, clean, hop showcases and this is a bit murky, thick and heavy.
