Cigar City Brewing Introduces Caribbean Style IPA Brewed in Puerto Rico, Canned in Florida
Yesterday's post over on the Cigar City Brewing blog got us pretty excited...
It seems that the good folks down in Tampa recently paid a visit to Cervezas del Sur, a large brewery located in Ponce, Puerto Rico, where they brewed a beer they've dubbed Dry-Hopped on the High Seas. The 7%, 60 IBU "Caribbean-style IPA" was brewed with loads of Simcoe hops and then dry-hopped with plenty more before being transferred to the shipping vessel for the journey home. Once back in Tampa the beer was packaged in cans and is now available for purchase at the brewery.
"everything we had hoped for and then some. Luscious tropical fruit aromas and flavors are the highlight followed by a clean bitter finish and a light complimentary malt profile. While we are pleased with our experiment, the ultimate arbiters of our success will, as always, be our customers."
