After spending the winter holed up in a trailer parked in a remote swamp with nothing but baked beans and model airplane glue to sustain him, Florida Man is ready to terrorize humanity once again. Only this time, he’s got a freshly trimmed mustache, a brand new polyester shirt from the thrift store and a shiny wristwatch that he “found on the ground, I swear man!” That’s right, Florida Man is back and better than ever. The recipe for our Crazy Hoppy Double IPA has been given an update for 2018 and boasts a drier, cleaner malt profile and additional hop varietals that boast notes of honeydew and melon. Look for the 4-pack cans of Florida Man (the beer) in the Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room and look for Florida man (the person) in local fast food parking lots and county lock-ups. The world needs heroes, and in our home state of Florida only a very special hero will do. A hero with a shark tooth around his neck, a Grim Reaper tattoo on his arm and a rap sheet longer than his mama’s mustache. A hero who’s forgotten more about amateur taxidermy and alligator rasslin’ than you’ll ever know. What better way to pay tribute to our beloved Florida Man than with a big ol’ Double India Pale Ale brewed with bright, citrusy hops and an assertive bitterness that just about matches Florida Man’s general disposition. This hopped-up whopper of a beer is big in character and guaranteed to sear itself into your memory, just like “the world’s worst superhero,” Florida Man.

    4pk of small cans from LCBO. Pours an average size foamy white head and has some thick dirty lacing. Has a hazy golden orangey coloured appearance. Lively carbonation. Aromas of tropical fruits and citrusy hops, some floral and piney notes as well. A little bit of yeast and grass too. Flavours of tropical fruits, lots of citrus and piney hop notes, some yeast and grass in there as well. Mild bitterness on the palate. For 8.5%, not overly strong and goes down quite nicely.

    355ml can that pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a bubbly off-white head, average retention and not much lacing. Pineapple fruity nose at the beginning with some strong vanilla, coconut mixing in afterwards. Warming alcohol as well. The taste is thankfully not as sweet and fruity. More bitterness, dryness showing citrus zest. No vanilla here and the fruitiness holds the background. Seems like the fruit calms down in the nose, showing some good grassiness - after breathing for a while. Not a bad Double IPA.

    Pours slightly hazy topaz with a thick and frothy eggshell head. Aroma offers resiny hops, zesty citrus and fresh malt. Flavor delivers piney and mostly resiny hops, zesty orange and grapefruit, fresh malt, a sweet mango touch. Texture provides lively fizz and good smooth body. Good news - and beer - from Florida.

    Water, barley, hops, and yeast. About as simple as it gets for a DIPA. Good overall quality and taste....just doesn't quite seem top notch like CCB did 4-5 years ago. Has that West Coast flavor and feel. Kind of pricey for a bomber, so not sure if I'd get again unless they canned or bottled this in 4-packs.
