Found this beer in a can six-pack while I was staying in Orlando a few years back. Hadn't heard of Cigar City back then (I had just turned 21 so I was new to craft beer). Honestly, I picked it out for the design and by a local recommendation. This beer blew me away. Such a great complex IPA.

Specifically, the complexity lies within the balance of tropical/citrusy hop with the sweet caramel malt. Needless to say the hop is the frontrunner in this instance, but the balance adds more depth to the IPA.

I drank this while sitting out in the sun on a beautiful day reading Catcher in the Rye. In the moment it was the perfect beer.

Awesome IPA. Can’t wait until I can try this fresh in Florida in a few weeks time.
