look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Orange brown and red with only a tint of haze, no carbonation. 3 fingers of orange cream head. A little crusty lacing.

S: Big citrus piney fresheness pops out of the can on opening without even lifting it to my nose. Orange candy, malt, red pepper.

T: Orange candy, pine, sweet, citrus, spicy like orange peel and mulling spices. In spite of the big freshness of hop character, not a huge bitterness. Emphasis seems to be on the finishing hops which keep the freshness.

M: Medium, slightly resinous, lightly syrupy body with little carbonation.

O: Excellent, definitely one of my favourites in this style. Will give it 9 out of 10. Bought in Lakeland, FL, drank in Kansas City, MO, August 10th, 2014.

Pours a deep crimson with hop aromas that explode from the can. Mouth-feel is full with an intense, yet pleasant malt backbone. Notes of sweet citrus linger long after the finish. Mild to moderate alcohol warming with a lingering sweet finish. Review is from a can purchased at Cigar City Brewing approximately two weeks after canning (3/14/14) consumed on 8/8/14.
