Tastes like a more astringent piney Jai Alai. To be honest the smell is amazing and the taste was a let down. I was expecting more fruitiness. The after taste was kind of bad. Other than the aroma it's average at best. On the plus side it's distributed better than other Cigar City beers so at least people in NY and Philadelphia can try something of theirs easily (well while it lasts).

The bubbles/carbonation are very fine on this beer, almost sharp. It is definitely dry hopped but seems as if hopped very little during the boil. There is not a strong hop flavor up front, but a larger one as an aftertaste. Still not as strong as the smell is. The packaging is awesome though. Six pack cans in a new kind of holder that protects the tops from dirt and such. Not worth the the $14 for the six pack in my opinion, but I am glad I tried it. I would definitely rank this as a lighter IPA. The can says Caribbean Style IPA and that is a dead on description.
