Notes: This 7.2% ABV, crushable IPA, is the perfect blend of the refreshing notes of tropical fruit and citrus, along with the clean finish of fresh pine. Hopped with Magnum, Centennial, and Columbus hop additions give this IPA a strong citrusy, floral base with little hints of spice. And dry hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra hops, the Last Stop IPA is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Pours a hazy golden color with a white head on top. Has a citrus hoppy aroma to it. Has a super hoppy taste to it along with some mixed fruit at the back end.

Boy is this a nice drinker. Aroma isn't unappealing but it's not anything to write home about. A little light overall in intensity with a mix hop presentation (herbal, grass and a small amount of fruit and a little spice). Some grounding malt.
Kinda' cloudy, lighter colored with a full dense head.
Very enjoyable full flavor. Almost APA in it's malt fullness but definitely hop forward with full mix that matches the aroma hop presentation. There is also a fullness to the feel that creates the impression of it being bigger than it is. I like it.
This is a dangerous one as it goes down fast and easy and leaving me begging for more.
Thanks Bro. Much appreciated.

Poured a cloudy light orange body with minimal head and lace around glass. Bitter, soapy hop aroma with bits of citric notes. Light bodied, dry, has a soapy bitterness as the hops are the star as there is a minimal bit of fruit sweetness and just enough malts to add a bit of heft. Not a bad IPA at all but more of a dry IPA that doesn't really wow me.

Pours a very slight hazy yellow-orange with a white head . Smells a citrus grapefruit . I was expecting an overly bitter beer from the smell but the bitterness was not overwhelming . There was something on the tounge that I couldn't quite nail down but for someone who is not a big IPA fan it was a very tolerable brew. Overall very enjoyable

Celebratory beer following a great family day at the Magic Kingdom Disney World the day prior.
12 oz can, drank straight from it.
Really good, bitter and piney IPA.

Can dated 12/19/14 (acquired in a swap - oh well) into a pint glass. Pours a hazy pale gold with a coarse eggshell-white head. Initial impression is citrus and a slightly resinous note - both subdued (possibly due to the age). Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
Overall, pretty good - but I'd really like to try a fresh sample.

Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with white head. Citrus, floral notes, a little pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a lot of citrus, very fruity.

Can poured into tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Smell is pineapple, big tropical fruit, and a slight sweetness. Taste follows with big fruity and citrus hops. Only a slight caramel maltiness to balance, but this one is more about the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry finish and slight bitterness. The dry finish leaves your palate wanting more of this beer. Overall, this is a good, delicious IPA that showcases the hops and I really enjoyed this beer.

A: slight haze; deep gold in color; 2 finger ivory head that receded slowly to a thin cap; OK lacing;

S: floral, pine, a little citrus;

T: mellow citrus - orange and lemon - for a moment, then a combination of floral and citrus; the floral character is such that it borders on soapy; citrus gets added back in on the mildly bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: complex aroma and flavor;

Right off of the bat, it's impossible not to draw Jai Alai comparisons, but this is more floral and bit sweeter (not as floral or grassy as Flower Power), but I get tons of papaya and candied fruit, with a hint of alcohol, caramel malts round out the profile as tropical fruits linger on the palate.

Picked this up at TW, didn't even know it was CC! Bonus! Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top on the can I get a serios aft of piney hops and grapefruit. Pours to a cloudy bright citrus yellow with a foamy off white head. On the taste this brew is very dandelion like with a steady bitterness that builds a bit then fades into the background for a sweeter finish. Not a knock your socks off IPA boldness but a very well meshed that is simple and crisp. A very smooth drinker, mouthfeel is like syrup. I would definitely buy again.

Sugar cookies, then tangerine, spruce, and grapefruit rind. 4
Overripe peach end and powdery bitterness that cuts hard.
Lt-med, dry, salty. 4

Magnum, Centennial, and Columbus

Throws Lagunitas shapes to start, which is promising. And it follows through, but where Lag goes juicy, this heads for the IBUs. And there’s a slightly queasy rotten-fruit aspect to the hopping which I’ve had before - just too much oil? But balanced and citrussy and all that, still. If Florida is a poor man’s California, then so is this. 3.75

L: Murky golden yellow, with sediment. Big foamy white head, with considerable lacing.

S: Pineapple, tropical fruit. This is a delight.

T: Light and refreshing. Not overly complex, but this IPA does it right. Pineapple again, sweet subtle malt, with a slightly bitter finish.

F: Well carbonated.

O: This IPA just gets it right. It's not perpluxing you with its intricate malty backbone or sticky resin hops. It light, floral and dangerously drinkable. I could drink this daily! I undoubtedly got a fresh can living just over two hours away from Cigar City. I like Jai Alai, I love Last Stop.

Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: slightly hazy, orange-yellow hue with a foamy, sustained white-head. According to the can, this IPA is from the "Brew Bus Brewing" but it is canned by Cigar City Brewing. If you review the Brew Bus website, it is a company that specializes in brewery tours....In any event, this is a very good, refreshing ale.

Upon opening the can there was a fresh explosion of mellow tropical fruit and tangy malt. The ale was canned a couple of months ago, but the aroma is strongly indicative of freshness.

The flavor is very balanced with bittersweet tropical fruit and a pleasing malt in the aftertaste. I could not detect much pine in the hop profile, only citrus. The lingering bitterness complements the sweetness of the malt.

The body is rather light and thirst-quenching with moderate carbonation and clean mouth feel.

At 7.2 % ABV this is a dangerously drinkable IPA; I finished the can in very little time and immediately opened a second. Since Brew Bus Brewing is not actually a brewery, Cigar City Brewing has created and brewed another excellent IPA to complement their superb Jai Alai IPA.

Pour from the can into a pint glass, the brew was hazy yellow gold color with a lot a sediment floating around which made it look like beach water leading up to a thick foamy 2 finger off white head that was full of bubbles and faded very slowly, leaving great spotty lacing and foamy rings as it went down. The yeast sediment looked like it was suspended animation as none of the specs moved, it was a great looking beer from the can that left a foamy layer on top.

Smells of bright fresh citrus with a fruity mix of tangerine, orange, lemon, grapefruit pith, piney hops, fruity candy, biscuit and some other fruits like mango or papaya. Not much in the way of balance, but the fruit was so fresh and delicious smelling that it was wonderful to inhale. It was like being in an orange grove.

Taste was almost identical to the nose but there was more malt and graham cracker in the mix that worked well with the fresh citrus hops and fruity mix of tangerine, grapefruit, orange, lemon, piney hops, fruity candy like Razzles, biscuit, caramel, light brown sugar, mango, honey and some mild spices that are herbal like tea leaf. Balance is much better and the bitterness is very light, letting the bready hop sweetness combo fade together on the dry side. The sweetness and citrus linger on, but this ends clean and easy.

Mouthfeel is smooth and kind of creamy, with very mild carbonation, a medium body that has some chewy moments, and a nice easy finish that's on the dry side.

This beer was a gamble since I had never heard of it, but my local beer guy said that Cigar City made this and suggested I try it since he knows I love IPA's. I'm very glad I followed his advice since this was a very tasty IPA that hides the 7.2% ABV perfectly and is so smooth that it is a definite session beer for me. Really, really good stuff. Get on the bus and grab a six pack, this brew won't disappoint.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Out of the can comes a light pale yellow colored brew with a slight haze. Sticky white head forms and leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

SMELL: Raw grapefruit, pine, herb, pith. Pretty fantastic aroma if you're in the mood for an IPA. Citrusy, tropical, and inviting.

TASTE: The taste is piney, bitter and grapefruit like. Light malt body allows citrus, herb, pine and resin to dance on the palate. Bitter yet refreshing. Very enjoyable.

FEEL: Full bodied, well carbonated, semi dry with a hop bite and amply crisp. The kind of beer an IPA lover could drink all day, as it is uber drinkable.

OVERALL: Another impressive beer from Cigar CIty. Really solid IPA that would be my go to if available.

12 oz can dated 9/26/14 poured into a brandy snifter

A: light pour so not much of a head, dark gold color with fair clarity

S: grapefruit rind, oranges, a little bready

T: a little fruit on the front of the tongue then more bready and herbal hops taste finishes fairly clean with maybe some cracker taste like saltines do on the back end

M: light doesn't linger finishes clean

O: it's a very balanced IPA it's not too anything it's right down the middle and that's not necessarily a bad thing maybe a touch more fruit as it warms

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has lots of fine particulates floating in suspension along with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white heat that died down, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge along with bits of lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with some notes of pine.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts off with flavors of citrusy hops and then transitions to a blend of citrusy and piney flavors with some hints of tropical fruits. The hops contribute a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is easy to drink and has some interesting flavors.

Pours dirty gold with a mound of sugary head. Smells of zesty tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, and spices. Flavors of tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango, spiciness, grass, and hop bitterness and mild booze flavor. Medium bodies with medium carbonation.

Super fresh; got this six pack less than a week after it was canned.

Pours quite light in color with a big haze and lots of fine sediment. This is one of the lightest-colored IPAs out there.

Big, big citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Excellent.

A bit of grassy and grainy malt flavors kicked back by big tropical fruit-like flavors from the hops and a big bitterness to finish.

If this wasn't brewed by Cigar City I'd think someone was trying to clone that brewery's flagship Jai Alai IPA. Think of this as Jai Alai's drier brother.

A must-try.

I have been up and down all day, never having established a circadian rhythm, but like rust, The CANQuest (TM) never sleeps! I am so elated and overjoyed to be back on The CANQuest (TM), following so many f**king bottles, that I need to change my tighty whities every hour or so! Not even #TheOldLady gets me this excited, and she is one smoking hot number. Just sayin'.

From the CAN: "

I ran my fingertips gently over its exterior until we both began to sweat uncontrollably. I caressed its nubbin at its opening and felt it shiver beneath my touch. When I jerked my finger forward, it let out a loud Crack! and gave a little gush across my fingers, which I lifted to my mouth and licked off in front of the glistening CAN. When I grabbed it by its shiny bottom and upended it for an inverted Glug, I heard a low moan of anticipatory joy. I watched as it bubbled and frothed and foamed and finally settled back down with just under two fingers of soapy, bone-white head with limited retention. Color was a slightly hazy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose smelled like tropical fruits: mango, papaya, one other that I CANnot dredge up this moment. I get really turned on by the musky scent of such fruits and so I stuck my tongue out and in to allow it to loll around on my tongue. Mouthfeel was medium, approaching fullness. The taste was musky, dank, slightly tart, kind of sweaty, earthy and full-on yummy! The tropical fruitiness of the hops was making me harder than Russian arithmetic with Chinese instructions. Finish was lip-smacking dry and I just wanted to keep that musky flavor on my hips, lips and fingertips as long as possible. Who says CANs aren't sexy?!?

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is full of citrus hops. Taste is hoppy, citrus, some bitterness, very smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, despite the abv, is a beer I could easily go through several of.

The beer comes in a hazy light orange.

The aroma has orange candy, with some resinous dank quality in the back.

On the flavor, there's light green vegetal qualities in the front, with some bitterness, almost of escarole, heavy floral notes. A medium breadiness in the middle. On the back is grapefruit pith with a medium plus bitterness on the back, verging on astringency.

A well made IPA that almost reminds me of Jai Alai.
