Served in a bottle at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a clear copper in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head which has very good retention properties - there is about 50% of the head remaining with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel malts with stronger aromas of citrus/grapefruit and tropical fruit hops.

T: Very light amounts of bitterness upfront from the citrus/grapefruit hops but there is a strong citrus/grapefruit flavor. After that, there is some caramel malt sweetness and the finish has lots of notes of tropical fruits.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Not sure if this was the freshest bottle but it was still really enjoyable. Definitely a quality beer that I would be happy to have again - I enjoyed the flavors.

Poured from the tap a bright copper-orange color with two fingers of off-white head.

Aroma of tangerine and lemon and a hint of green grass.

Big grapefruit taste upfront followed by floral notes and malts.

Medium bodied and a bit dry with a sharp carbonation.

A very nice IPA and my first beer from Cigar City. Looking forward to trying the others.
