Poured this into a Monday Night Brewing pint glass. The body has a somewhat cloudy brassy color, and the head started off at about two fingers then swiftly sank down but never gave up.
The aroma is alive and teeming with juicy tangy fruit and citrus notes, like a mid-morning Floridian farm stand.
The flavor is fruity and sweet, much like the nose but balanced off well in the end with a fairly decent hop bite and sizzle.
The mouthfeel is as smooth as the glassware I poured this into.
Overall an incredible IPA. I love that Cigar City is putting this stuff into cans that are actually dated. I'll be back for more.

Second time trying, first time in a while. Found at bottle shop in Denver. Can date 3/12/2014. Random and wonderful find. Would love to have this all the time. There's a spot in the beer fridge right next to Modus and O'Dell IPA that this would fit perfectly into. Kick ass beer.

This beer is great! It's got a nice sweet taste on the front end but the aftertaste has a floral-bitterness to it. I'm not sure what hops they used but they made the right choice! It's an awesome IPA! I recommend this beer to anyone who runs across it.
