Tocobaga and the Humidor IPA are my two favorite regular Cigar City beers. The only place you can find it consistently in bottles is at the brewery. They are going to be canning both beers in the very near future. CCB has been using a I'm glad I live a couple miles away.

Fresh from Florida with a date of 2/18/14

A - Pours out a cloudy light red with a bunch of hop sediment flouting around. Has a two finger frothy off yellowish off white head. Well carbonated.

S - Hops come through on the nose with a piney citrus follow with a bready sweet maltiness and some earthyness.

T - Sweet malt breadiness, caramel, followed by the piny citrus earthyness that drys out. Balanced from malts to hops and pretty smooth and enjoyable.

M - Medium to full bodied smooth with nice carbonation. Dry on the mouth leaving you wanting more.

O - Very enjoyable red ale that is balance with pronounce malt and hop profiles. Not a beginner beer for a red ale coming in at over 7 % abv.

Disclaimer: I've mostly been on a hop kick with IPAs & DIPAs.

However, this was an excellent red ale. Fantastic smell and with great mouth feel and taste.

Found a 6-er of this 3 days old and figured I would finally try it...glad I did.

A refreshing ale and a good benchmark for this style, though I'm not that prevalent in this style currently.

Let me start by saying that cigar city should please come to Michigan. This ale pours a handsome amber red color With a generous frothy white head that lasts throughout the pour. It leaves a decent amount of lacing. The nose is balanced with a tremendous amount of hops and a very nice amount of malt. It is sweet but bitter all at once. The body is medium in nature with a lot of coating of hoppy resin and sweet malts. The flavor begins with an ipas generosity of hops followed by the sweet balance of roasty malts. This is a delicious ale with an almost unheard of amount of balance. Thus is a greatly crafted ale from a brewer that is quickly impressing me more and more.
