I was lucky enough to score a Humidor Series IPA from Cigar City Brewing! Thanks, Jay and Kelly, for bringing me this one all the way from Tampa, Florida in your luggage! Have I mentioned that I love the brews Cigar City makes? I have only had what I could get at the Culmination Beer Festival in 2013. I poured the beer from the only kegs at the party, everything else was in bottles.
This beer has an incredible frothy, foamy head that stays for a long long time, even until the last sip. I loved the hop-forward flavor, but the cedar is what makes this beer special. This bottle wasn’t particularly fresh — born on Nov 13, 2013, but it must have been well-handled, because it was still tasty.
To Cigar City! Light one up, sit back and enjoy the fact that your beer is super! I am glad great beer has hit Florida. Warm climates and delicious beer is a match made in heaven!
