A: Ever so slight haze with a thin, fluffy white head of average retention.
S: Citrusy and grassy with a little tropical flair, maybe lemon, orange, and apricot.
T: Chalky low tree fruit and citrus that bends to herbal and green. I'd say hop bitterness is low-moderate. The malt is very low sweetness and grainy plus biscuit. Body is soft, with moderate carbonation.
O:Solid pale ale from Cigar City Brewing. In line style from a highly competent brewery. Fresh tropical and citrus hops combined with a held within bounds hop bite. Very solid drinker, if this was local to me it would be a go to brew.

One fine body…
The people of Tampa Bay have fallen prey to Pirate invasion every year for well over 100 years. After more than a century of failing to repel these seafaring raiders in their anachronistic wooden ships, despite access to modern sea, land and air arsenals that ostensibly should make short work of wind powered vessels equipped with naught but cast iron cannons and raging scurvy, it occurred to the folks of Cigar City Brewing that if you can't beat them start saying Arrrr Matey! And so we have brewed Invasion Pale Ale, a citrusy and tropical session beer brewed for those long days of marauding, pillaging and pirating.
