3.78/5  rDev -1%

Pint on Tap at Cigar City Tampa FL for 5$

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, lemons/grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and hops. There is also some grapefruit and lemon (both juice and zest) and a bit of a graininess. It ends with a light bittersweet aftertaste.

Overall – A very drinkable APA that has a nice balance of flavours. It's actually quite refreshing and has a decent amount of hop bitterness. I can see this working as a good gateway beer to get people into hoppy brews.

Had this last week at CCB. I got it for my wife because I thought it was "light" ale and wouldn't be too hoppy for her. Needless to say, I ended up with it while she went over to cider.

Anyway, it was a crisp and "light" in color only, ale. Not really strong enough for me in ABV or hops but very respectable for the style.

On tap at CCB. Pours a hazy gold with a good amount of white head, decent lacing, thick wisps and a medium collar. Aroma is tangerine and floral hops with a little cedar. Taste is really cedary, some of the citrus as well. Medium body and carbonation.

16 oz pour into a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow with a one finger white head. Dissipates after a minute or two leaving a nice covering of lacing on the sides. Average amount of visible carbonation.

S: Great citrus hop aroma, grapefruit and mango dominate. Pine characteristics are very intense from the cedar.

T: Very good pale ale, starts off with a hop bouquet. Hops are similar to the aroma, citrus with a strong pine backing. Finish is what makes this beer great, very robust malt comes forward. It's a light malt but the flavor is a perfect compliment to the hop.

M: Medium body with ample carbonation. Crisp and refreshing finish.

Overall the cedar really gives this a unique taste. A very smooth pale ale that is real good for only being available at the airport.

32 oz. poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Pours with a small white head. Faint surface wisps.

Smell - Citrus and tropical fruit hops. And then a bucket of diacetyl. Ugh.

Taste - Zesty orange. Grainy. Interesting hop flavor. Like a spicy orange hop finish. Tastes really good and then diacetyl.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Low carbonation.

Overall - Could have been an interesting pale ale. Just a diacetyl bomb.
