Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it is starting the New Year off by adding an updated version of its beloved Florida Man Double IPA to its Year-Round portfolio.
Brewed to “pay tribute to ‘the world’s worst superhero,'” Florida Man is a Double India Pale Ale brewed with “a nearly-criminal amount” of Pacific Jade, Galaxy, Azacca, Lemon Drop and Simcoe hops that are “balanced by delicate peach esters from a unique Double IPA yeast and a dash of Canadian honey malt.” Weighing in at 8.5% ABV and 80 IBUs, Florida Man is a “hopped-up whopper of a beer [that is] big in character and guaranteed to sear itself into your memory, just like” its namesake.
Florida Man is scheduled to enter distribution in the very near future. You can expect to find this Year-Round brew available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, on draft, and in the Cigar City Brewing Mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. cans at craft beer-focused establishments located in Florida and “most of [Cigar City’s] distribution footprint in the coming weeks.” Prost!
