Poured out of a bomber into a regular old bulb glass.
A – Poured out a very cloudy straw color with a massive two fingers of stark white head that left solid lacing all down the glass.
S – Smells of lemon peel, banana, grain and wheat with a slight sour back end.
T - Follows the nose with a burst of tropical fruit. Mostly get the lemon, banana and orange. Has just a slight hop bitterness to it. Pretty solid wheat and grain flavors.
M – Medium bodied with nice carbonation and a bit drying mouthfeel.
O – Had this the day after I had CC’s Criterium wheat. Both are very solid and easy drinkers. This one had a nice tropical flavor as advertised. Another great beer for the summer. I favored this one slightly over Criterium.

12 oz can, dated 4.4.14 and marked as 33rd annual, poured into a pint glass.
The beer pours a cloudy, hazy golden color, hues of straw and lemon that has some sediment resting at the base of the glass after it's been fully poured. A soft, fizzy, white head appears with moderate retention and little lace left behind. The aroma is of soft pale grain, light crusty wheat, honey sweetness and gentle hops, lightly fruity but predominantly earthy. The flavors mirror well, lots of sweet and soft pale grain, light wheat breadiness with gentle hop bitterness and some mild fruitiness and grassy flavors. The body is okay, assertive crispness, light soapiness, coats the mouth decently well and finishes lightly dry.
Verdict: A decent pale wheat ale from Cigar City. Not the most interesting or exciting take on the style, but it's fairly refreshing and on a warm summer afternoon, it was a nice choice.
