Sampled from a 12oz can purchased at the New Leaf Market in Tallahassee.

Light golden with a slight haze and a small white head. A citrusy aroma with a taste that follows. Not outrageously hoppy or bitter but not quite balanced either. Very refreshing. A moderate mouthfeel and a well behaved carbonation.

A very nice pale ale that works well with the Florida weather.

Cigar City Invasion Pale Ale

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Cigar City shaker pint. Served chilled...

A) Golden amber brew, with a little haze. A finger of froth settled to a dusting. Patchy lacing clings to the top of the glass.

S) Pale malt with a big lemon twist. Light pineapple scent... Pleasantly zesty...

T) Near the nose... Good amount of citrus zest. Some grass... Light tropical fruit as it warms up a bit. Good balance...

M) Lighter medium body with moderate carbonation. It is crisp and refreshing. Slightly dry finish with some citrus zest.

O) Good drinkability.... At 5% ABV you could pound down a few of these easily. Glad to try it, but wouldn't really go out of my way to acquire more.

a really tasty pale ale, exactly what i expect a florida pale to taste like, with all kinds of tropical fruit aromas and flavors wafting through a lighter bodied and well carbonated can of beach beer for the craft drinker. it takes me on vacation, and includes aromas of pineapple and guava in its fruit punch profile. the hops have such little bitterness, a nice welcome summery thing here in colorado, where winter keeps hanging on. hazy light orange beer, heady and fizzy, looks nice in a globe glass. lighter pale malt base stays out of the way, while keeping an otherwise very light beer from coming across watery or too fine. great carbonation fills my mouth with all this tropical hop goodness, yet the finish is extremely clean, almost like a lager, an impressive feat in this style. nothing earth shattering here, but a nice summery breeze blowing through your typical pale ale. im always up for that.
