Great beer! Stands up to its reputation.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass.

A: A dark, hazy orange color. One inch head that holds up nicely.

S: Bitter piney notes, with orange and grapefruit citrus balance.

T: Hops aplenty. Deliciously bitter on the front, the hops hold up and through the citrus backend to balance the brew nicely.

M: Medium carbonation. Thick and delicious.

O: This is a great beer that makes me wish I lived in Florida. Well done offering from Cigar City.
