Enjoyed on tap at the Cigar City Brewing taproom.

Wow, this one took me by major surprise! This one pours out out a bright orange with a substantial head for a tap pull. The aroma is bright and citrusy, with a touch of maple and plenty of lighter hops. The taste is also highly citrusy, with lighter hop flavors. Lots of orange, grapefruit, and just a touch of spices and maple. It's very refreshing. There's lots of hops here, but they're all citrusy hops. The mouthfeel is light and crisp. The drinkability is outstanding. I could drink this one all day and all night if it weren't nine bucks for a 750. An excellent IPA from Cigar City Brewing, that's really different from their other IPA offerings.
