750ml bottle

A- Poured into a Cigar City tulip. Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is very citrusy, most notably oranges from the curacao peel added during the brewing process. There is also some sweet malt and citrusy hops in the nose as well but the orange notes dominate here. Very nice!

T- Wow! As citrusy and full of orange notes as the aroma was, the taste may even have it beat. Sweet malt up frog with a ton of bitter orange peel, grapefruit and other citrusy flavors with a lot of bitterness in the finish from the hops and some warmth from the alcohol as well. 

M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation.

O- Overall, another delicious beer from CCB. Can't believe this is the 5th year for 110K+OT, this is a very worthy batch. Can't wait for next years installment to the series!

Arrives a solid medium brown with a good fingerwidth head of light tan perched upon it. Clear with decent light penetration. Good lace.
Smell is light malt and sweaty armpits. A mildly acidic, mustiness. Honestly, the first time I've ever encountered that note!
Taste is malty, hoppy, rich, woody, slight evergreen, apple and wheat notes. Very interesting, quite complex with a good balance.
Full bodied, rich, smooth, somewhat drying, slightly warming. Light effervescence. A really good brew, too bad its another one-time beer by CCB. If you aren't put off by the nose, this is really good.

Pours a clear dark orange with a big, off-white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of piney, floral citrus, grapefruit, and some sweet bready character. Surprisingly malty.

Taste is maly/pine up front that goes into a more dank/pine middle before ending on a bitter yet slighty caramel finish. There are some lighter fruit notes but they do not jump out.

Full body and low to medium carbonation with notes of alcohol.

This is a big brew that has a good balance of alcohol, malt, and hop with the hop character just barely edging forward.

Single finger off white head with excellent retention and scattered lacing on a murky copper with orange tones body. Aroma of fig, orange peal, apricot, bready malts, oak and alcohol. Flavor is very malty as expected with candied orange, decent amount of booze, wood, apricot, breads and lemon. Medium but chewy body and light to moderate carbonation. Better than the last batch bring a lot more drinkable and less boozy. I almost didn't get this one as I remember the last being a drain pour, rare for cigar city. This one is much better.
