2.38/5  rDev -33%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12oz can. Thanks Doug for sharing this one. Poured into a GLBC snifter today, 5/1/2014.

A- Lighter orange body, one finger white head with fair retention, some lacing.

S- I don't know what to make of this. Pale malt evoking caramel and a bit of biscuit. An odd rotten fruit kind of sweetness comes out, that evokes blue cheese. Not something I want in my IPAs.

F- Definitely not good. Caramel, weird tropical fruit flavours that combine with the caramel to make some sort of funky blue cheese flavour. I normally like blue cheese, but I like it solid and not in liquid form. A little bit of onion.

M- Medium bodied, dry with fine carbonation. That's about it. Way too bitter for what you get on the flavour profile.

O- I feel robbed having tried this. This is not a good beer by any means unless you like liquid blue cheese. I expect way more out of Cigar City than this.

12 ounce can - canned 3-14-14 - nice, in the can less then a month...

Pours glowing reddish almond amber, lightly hazed. Moderate and relaxed lite oatmeal head, leaves nice lookin fine fields of tiny bubble low sheeting.

Tropical fruity nose with some pine hop notes.

This IPA packs more then a moderate hop package. Robust, fresh and muscular tropical fruit and resinous hop notes abound. Densely hopped right through the finish. Tasty IPA in a can....always a good thing...

12 oz can poured into a snifter. Canned 3/14/14 (a little over 1 month old)

Pours out a nice bright orange color, mostly clear body, maybe the slightest bit of haze. A nice retentive slightly off white head. Very nice lacing clings to the glass.

Not a very exciting aroma. Bright citrus grapefruit rind with a touch of bright tropical fruit. Some bready malts noticeable.

Tart and tangy hop, sharp tropical fruit somewhat similar to pineapple and kiwi, bright citrus character, finishes with a grapefruit citrus rind bitterness. Almost a slight woodiness as it warms.

Medium to light in body. Goes down easy. Leaves a bit of a lingering hop bitterness.

Not a bad beer, but it left a little to be desired. I'd be interested to try other versions of this, but I probably wouldn't buy this one again. Worth a shot if you've never had it. Has a kind of unique tart, tangy hop.

12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange body. Small white head. Nice lacing.

Smell - Not a very intense smell. Some grapefruit citrus. Orange. A bit of doughy malt sweetness. Toasty malts, too.

Taste - Grapefruit. Slightly musty. Sweet caramel. Toasted malt. Seems a deeper roasted malt profile than other variants. Grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Decent, but doesn't stand out against the other variants.
