In a taste off vs Dales Pale Ale, my #1 APA.
a) Looks go slightly to Dales, but it's fine looking. Hazed light amber body, supports a one finger rocky thick pillowy, swamp head that lasts and laces.
s) Pineapple / papaya dominant, tropical fruit upfront alongside floral hops on a malt core.
t) As with smell, it's loaded with tropical candied fruit hop flavors followed by flowers and sticky oil. Slightly marred by soapiness. It's a fine hop forward, fruity pale ale on a solid malt base. Super-packed flavors for a 5% abv. (but too juicy fruit and floral soap for me)
f) Smooth, juicy, refreshing, crisp. A touch soapy and oily, finishes a bit smokey and coaty.
o) Solid mid-pack APA from a great brewer.

A cloudy amber color with a light foamy head; A tangy hoppy aroma and a mild hoppy flavor.

This is the third beer from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa that I've tried recently. All have been worthwhile.
