12oz Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2$
Appearance - Slightly hazy copper colour with a large size fizzy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, grapefruit, apricots/guava
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with hops. There is also some grapefruit/guava/raspberry flavours. It ends with a fruity sweet aftertaste and a bit of lingering hop bitterness.
Overall – Maybe just a touch too sweet to drink a whole lot of, but a great american amber. It reminds me a bit of a Ithaca Cascazilla.. but better. Cigar city makes some fine brews.

A nice extra in a recent trade. Poured from 12 oz can into tulip glass.
A: Ruby tinted brown with a generous 3 finger fluffy white head that left some nice chunky lacing.
S: Resiny hops, oranges, caramel.
T: A nice balance of citrus notes with bitterness from the hops. A bit of sweetness creeps in at the last minute.
M: Medium body with a good level of carbonation. Easy drinking brew.
O: This a nicely balanced red ale. Would be a nice one to have 6 or 12 on the boat for a nice day of fishing...
