12oz can dated 12/29/2013 poured into pint glass.
Light yellow/orange elixir, thin rim of tight, white bubbles, few wisps of lacing.
Citrus, spice, rind.
Smooth hops predominate. Lemon rind, pine, earth tones.
Crisp, mild, light.
Like with all sessionable hoppy brews, you sacrifice the full flavor of the hops for lower alcohol.
Serving type: can

In the nose there is some nice smelling hops there. I can smell grapefruit and lime. The aroma is somewhat lean.
Pours nicely from the can. The color is orange amber with a tall white head, streaming carbo bubbles makes it complete.
The taste is okay and nothing really sticks out. The hops are lean and light and subtly dank. Some malts come through so even as light as the flavor is, it is balanced.
On the palate it's very harsh tasting. Course and grainy with a bitter finish. Not good.
Another okay beer from cigar city. Harshness aside, I'd drink more.
