Was served this beer in a tulip at Redlight Redlight in Orlando.

Appearance: clear copper color, consistent with the style. A little on the lighter side if anything.

Smell: amazing citrusy notes with strong grapefruit overtones over a solid pine backbone.

Taste: big grapefruit hop character up front, consistent, with a medium bodied maltiness to balance the hop profile. Similarly hopped to the pliney family, though not as thoroughly malted. Finish is smooth and clean.

Mouthfeel: this is probably the biggest shortcoming of this beer. It feels a bit thin in your mouth. Though I feel this is maybe getting a little picky.

Overall: this is the best beer I've had in the region (southeastern USA). They really have a polished product here. My first impression is that it would rank up there with my favorite double IPAs. I may check back in as I try it again in the future.

Serviceable DIPA enjoyed at the CC Tasting Room. Decent drinkability. A surprisingly small amount of hop aroma, a little head on medium yellow body. Some orange taste. Big IBU not too palate erasing. Suitable carbonation and medium mouthfeel with a long finish. More like an IPA and a half rather than a double.

On tap at Cigar City Tampa FL for 5$

Appearance - Clear light copper colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel, malts and hops. There is also some grapefruit mixed with some pineapple/apricots. It ends with a fruity sweet aftertaste with a medium amount of hop bitterness.

Overall – One of the better beers I had during my visits to Cigar City. Reminded me a bit of a DFH 90min. It had a nice array of flavours and was very drinkable.
