Cigar City Brewing Florida Man
What the brewers say
"Bold, tropical double IPA brewed with Pacific Jade, Galaxy, Azacca, Lemon Drop, and Simcoe."
What our panel thought
"Fairly muted aroma: orange, peach, grapefruit peel, light diesel, hint of white grape. Those carry into flavor, where bready, honey-vanilla sweetness merges into smooth bitterness—orange-mango hops, grassy-spicy undertones—and low alcoholic warmth. Medium-full body; lightly sweet, fruity finish."
What our editors thought
"Earthy, grounded, tropical nose, equal parts rustic and sweet. Tropical fruit notes dominate the sip, backed by earthy, mellow bitterness—not West Coast, not New England, something else."
