Pours a hazy orange with one finger of white head that dissipates in about a minute. Tons of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
The aroma is something else. Absolute fruit bomb. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, with a touch of pine. One of the best smelling beers I have ever had.
Taste is quite fruity as well. Tangerines and pineapples. Once again, a touch of pine. A nice malt backbone to support the hops. Bitter, but not overly so. Juicy, and refreshing. Medium bodied and somewhat low carbonation. Incredibly smooth and crisp.Just how i like my IPAs.

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.
