Cigar City Brewing Hopped On The High Seas (Ahtanum)
Cigar City Brewing Hopped On The High Seas is an American IPA with a fun concept. The beer is brewed at Cervezas del Sur in Ponce in Puerto Rico. It is then is then dry hopped on the ship as travels to Tampa for canning. This batch is dry hopped with Ahtanum hops. (I believe the first batch was brewed with Simcoe hops) The is a nice IPA with a sweet malt backbone, the hops are mostly dry and bitter with touch of tropical notes. The finish is very surprising with a dry/grassy/hay like thing going on, very pilsner like. Very good and refreshing for an IPA.
