Not sure what to expect from this beer but living in Florida I will try most of cigar city's offerings. This beer was stamped from early Oct so I know this was fresh. Poured a nice red color. The nose was not much other than hops, pine hops with some fruit mixed in there. The taste had some malts to it but was overtaken by the hops. I am not an IPA fan and to me this was like drinking an IPA as the hops were very present. I did not know what to expect from this and I can tell you I will not purchase anymore.
