A-dark cloudy amber with a light cream colored head

S-strong scent of sweet hops and malts. definitely smells more like a barley wine. strong scent

T-comes in with a very sweet flavor of hops and malts that slowly turns in to an old wood flavor. the after-taste is very fruity similar to fruit punch. they're all quite strong flavors.

M-low medium carbonation with a semi-dry finish

O-not CCB's best offering. I don't know why, but their 110k batches never impress me. This isn't a bad beer at all, but for a DIPA from the brewery, I expect a lot better. it's very sweet with some odd flavors reminiscent of a malt bomb. it's drinkable though I wish I had someone else here to share this one with.

Single finger off white head with excellent retention and scattered lacing on a murky copper with orange tones body. Aroma of fig, orange peal, apricot, bready malts, oak and alcohol. Flavor is very malty as expected with candied orange, decent amount of booze, wood, apricot, breads and lemon. Medium but chewy body and light to moderate carbonation. Better than the last batch bring a lot more drinkable and less boozy. I almost didn't get this one as I remember the last being a drain pour, rare for cigar city. This one is much better.

This is such a unique beer! You can taste the Orange Blossom honey in the brew as well as the Spanish Cedar blending with the original IPA. A truly unique Florida experience! I didn't know they had it in a bottle, I have only had this wonderful concoction on tap.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks Matt for sharing!

(A)- Pours a hazy, almost cloudy orange color. Some minimal tan froth.

(S)- Huge aromas of fig and orange peel. Ever so slightly boozy.

(T)- Again, an immense flavor profile of candied orange and fig. Has a large sweetness that carries through the entire flavor profile of the beer.

(M)- A normal carbonation level. Such a sweetly rich beer. Candied fruits that flow into a noticeable boozy quality.

(O)- I have a hard time believing this is a DIPA. This beer would make so much more sense as an english barleywine or old ale. A bit too sweet for my tastes.
