Purchased from one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Slightly cloudy orange gold with decent head and retention.

S: Hoppy. Citrus and floral. Very good.

T: Same as the smell. Complex and refreshing.

M: More body than expected. Really nice carbonation.

O: This is a good beer. Will buy again.

From 05/03/14 notes. Picked up a 6er of this in Naples for $8.99 and drank 3 of them in the hotel room out of a glass tumbler.

a - Pours a hazy, dark golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruits, bready malts, grapefruit, light pine hops, light tropical fruits, earthy malts. Nice nose, citrus is up front though not super hoppy.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, pale malts, citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, earthy malts, dough, and bready malts. Less hops than the nose and more malts, but nice.

m - Light body and low carbonation. Easy to drink, could definitely have a few of these.

o - Overall a nice beer. Not a hop bomb by any means, but very easy to drink and light fruits and hops to it. Worth the price and checking out, though I'd most likely get a Jai Alai 6er again before this.
