Filled up a growler in New York on Sunday after having it on draft at Prost in Garden City.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to singer layer. It is a hazy pale orange that has good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice frothy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Super ripe tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango followed by pale caramel and toasted malts. Floral and herbal notes too.
Taste: Whoa, this is like eating real fruit. Herbal, tropical, and citrus with super mild bitterness, caramel, and toasted malts.
Mouthfeel: Super smooth, slight tingly bitterness, a little chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation. Extremely enjoyable to drink.
Overall: This beer is truly amazing. Each sip gets better and better. Bummed that the growler is almost gone.
Serving type: growler

Hoping that this review is more than just the pangs of nostalgia, I find that Cigar City is a brewery founded upon an eclectic assortment of beer. Jai Alai is a hop head's paradise.
Straight from the can, a delicious beach beer. When poured into a glass and paired with blackened grouper, it's devine. The head is frothy and has staying power. Not to be ignored, the scent is reminiscent of a floral, bright IPA, but with subtle notes of something sweet and alluring... I've read "caramel", but prefer to think it is the aroma of something brewed especially for fairies at play in the land of dreams and sweets and candy.
Serving type: can
