12-oz can into nonic pub glass

A - 3 fingers off-white foam over an amber body full of sediment; low amount of visible carbonation; patchy lace

S - citrus, pine

T - pink grapefruit predominates, notes of pine and spice; bready malt is present, but keeps to the background

M - slick light/medium body, low carbonation

O - Invasion is on the hoppy side, but still a very good APA and a very good beer in general.

Drank while on vacation in Fort Myers, had to make due with a water glass from the hotel but man was this pale ale a good find at the local grocery store. Cans were dated 29-Oct-2014.

Lovely citrus aroma and taste, very grapefruit forward as suggested by others. Hopping is pronounced enough that the malt takes a bit more of a backseat than the very best beers of this style but it's a quibble. It's sad to see so much junk beer sold when great craft styles like this are readily available and relatively affordable.

Overall one of the best APAs I've tried. Wish I could get this back home in CT, have to travel over te border to NY to locate anything from Cigar City.
