A- Hazy orange gold. Beautiful lacing. Sticks to the snifter glass nicely

S- Hoppy tropical fruit. More mango and pineapple than your standard citrusy APA.

T- Same as smell. Hoppy tropical fruit. This is exceptional. The flavors all meld perfectly together.

m- smooth, nice caramel malt backbone holding it together.

Another exceptional cigar city beer! I want more. Please continue to ship to florida's east coast!

On-Tap at the brewery on 12-29-12.

A: Pours a cloudy, hazy yellowish color, nice white head that coats the glass. It leaves an almost spiderweb of lacing.

S: Man this beer might be the best smelling beer I have ever smelled. Rivals the Hill Farmstead Edward IMHO. Tons of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, orange are at the forefront.

T: Just like it smells. A very balanced beer and lighter than Jai Alai without losing any of the tropical notes.

M: Real smooth and it seems CCB has hit the nail on the head with the carbonation.

O: Great job again by CCB and I really hope this becomes one of their staple beers it's that good. I have never been a big APA guy, but I will drink this one whenever I get a chance.
