Invasion

Tropical Pale Ale

January – March 2020
Did you know?

A Pale Ale developed with long days of pillaging, pirating, and marauding in mind, Invasion Tropical Pale Ale’s genesis lies with Tampa’s Gasparilla Pirate Invasion. The annual celebration of apocryphal Tampa history began in 1904 and has been injecting eyepatches, cutlasses, and scurvy into the city’s culture each January for more than 100 years. The brewers at Cigar City Brewing developed this moderate alcohol and tropically inspired beer to perfectly complement the fun and excitement of the Gasparilla Pirate Invasion, with generous additions of Motueka, Galaxy, Simcoe, Pacifica, and Amarillo hops adding tangerine and nectarine notes paired with a moderate body and vibrant carbonation.

Tasting Notes

Tropical aromas dominate the nose of this approachable, low alcohol pale ale with distinct notes of mango, tangerine and soursop. On the palate, a moderate bitterness is tempered by flavors of navel orange and clementine and a dry, bread-like malt quality that makes this Pale Ale at once approachable and incredibly flavorful.
