Florida ManFlorida Man
Notes: The world needs heroes, and in our home state of Florida only a very special hero will do. A hero with a shark tooth around his neck, a Grim Reaper tattoo on his arm, and a rap sheet longer than his mama’s mustache. A hero who’s forgotten more about amateur taxidermy and alligator rasslin' than you’ll ever know. What better way to pay tribute to our beloved Florida Man than with a big ol’ Double India Pale Ale brewed with a nearly-criminal amount of hops and a moderate bitterness that just about matches Florida Man’s general disposition. This hopped-up whopper of a beer is big in character and guaranteed to sear itself into your memory, just like "the world’s worst superhero," Florida Man.

Florida Man DIPA....Purchased a 6 pack while visiting Disney with family. Tropical notes all day long. Taste takes you away to a tropical island with a smooth finish. Solid DIPA...

I picked this up at a grocery In Florida, it’s 3 weeks old, I’m stoked living in the PNW, I’ve always wanted a fresh beer from these guys. I’ve had a pretty fresh Jai Alai in N Carolina, I wanted to check out their double. This one is fantastic! I love the resinous pineapple with clean finish and balancing bitterness. Maybe it’s just different to all my usual local brews but I think it’s definitely better than what most of the reviewers are saying, perhaps it falls off quickly and is distributed stale? Dunno, this brew is easily as good as the local brews that have exceptional ratings in my area, I think this should be in the 90s?

Very mediocre DIPA. Forgettable but drinkable at least.

Citrusy, bold, yet still incandescent implosive IPA that fails to gain the threshold achieved among some of its more well known brethren - most notably Jai Alai. The style borders on an NEIPA but with resoundingly less sweetness. Drinkable. Alcohol is well -masked.

As a Florida Man I agree this fits the pallet on a hot humid day. When I first cracked open a can, I was asking myself is this juice or beer? It smells like pineapples and mangos and there is a sweet, slightly bitter grapefruit taste. So, If you like a crisp citrus DIPA, then this will be worth a try.

From a 12oz can, dated 01/20/22. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a slightly hazed dull orange with two fingers of lather-like foam. Retention is good, leaving scattered gobs of bubbly lacing.

Nose is thick and fruity. Aromas of apricot and mango.

Taste is thick and malty with a harsh, grainy edge. Tasting apricot, composty pineapple, orange and booze. Vaguely reminiscent of a flavored vodka, maybe apricot.

Feel is slick, medium-thick bodied with over-gentle, prickly carbonation. Undercarbonated and boozy.

Overall, sweet, malty, boozy. Not horrible but nothing I’m in a rush to have again.

From a can. Cloudy yellow-orange color with a finger of white head. Smells of pineapple. Medium body with a little stickiness. Pineapple flavor with a little breadiness. Deceptively smooth for 8.5%.

Juicy, spicy, melon, grapefruit, bitter, creamy, quite good DIPA but not remarkable or unique.

Pours a hazy gold. Thick foam. Tropical aroma. Tropical fruit body. Hops are somewhat muted. Sweet and buttery finish. Good but not what I expected.

Another solid effort from Cigar City, even if it isn’t Jai Alai. Ok cloudy yellow, briefly exciting froth, meadow on the nose. Pleasant balance of sweetness, alcohol, and hops on the palate.

12oz can pkg date 11/29/22 into a pint glass. L: Pours a lightly hazed straw yellow/light gold w/a 1" soapy white head. Fair carbonation, decent retention and moderately thick lacing & banding.
S: Pineapple, nutty, pepper, honey, rich caramel.
T: Sweet juicy pineapple, lemon zest, tangy light orange, honey, buttery caramel. It is fruity, full flavored & lightly "spicy".
F: Crisp & moderately drying slippery med-heavy mouthfeel w/a med-length semi-firm linger.
O: A fairly sweet but not cloying fruity DIPA that drinks quite smoothly w/very little alcohol detected. Very pleasant overall. It is excellent in it's style.

On tap at the source- opaque medium gold honey color with short foamy head leaving moderate lacing. Nose is mild citrus and sweet malt. Taste pretty much follows with a citric bite lingering on the finish.

A very hoppy, citrusy double IPA with pineapple overtones. Dangerously delicious!

A hazy yellow with a small white head and some lacing.
Citrus, pine aroma.
Taste of lemon, grapefruit, pine.
Light to medium bodied. Not real impressed with the aroma or taste.

Definitely one of the better DIPA's I have had in a while the Lemon drop hops offer a distinct bitterness and the overall presentation is clean and fruity with a well concealed ABV. The price was very reasonable got the can for just a couple of bucks. Get some!

This would be dangerously poundable on a hot day at the beach. Aggressive glass pour, light head, sticky lacing, cloudy yellow color. Smell is sweet and citrusy, fresh hops. Taste is slight hops bitterness, citrus, slightly fruity(ish), very refreshing, especially for a DIPA. The 8.5% abv is well hidden, only very slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is slight carbonation, then buttery and slick on the finish. Would buy again. Another winner from Cigar City. I love Florida.

A hazy pale yellow, white head that recedes quickly leaving some moderate lacing. I get some citrus, melon and some hops. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Nice beer, but I wouldn't buy it again.
