Nice to get a fresh can of this (canned in March), the only other bottle i had was clearly infected, this was not. Dark orange color, good foamy head, looks fine. Aroma is sort of hoppy, tropical fruit mostly but its not as robust as I would like. Flavor is very hop heavy,tropical fruits buta strong alcohol component that is quite unpleasant. Very strong astringency. Not sure why Cigar City is so popular I wouldn't drink this again and I plan on giving away my remaining can. I also think their aesthetics and branding are sort of tacky.
