3.85/5  rDev +20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a tumbler glass.

A- It poured a golden orange with a good finger tall head. I have a feeling there may have been a bigger head if not for my conservative pour due to the limited size of my glass. The head became a nice lace and left good sticking on the glass. It had medium-heavy carbonation.

S- It was fairly balanced between floral hops and sweet malts.

T- The flavor was bold, yet balanced. There were grapefruit hop flavors (I thought it was appropriate for an FLA beer). It was balanced by bready malts and had a clean/dry finish.

M- The feel was a tad on the thick and oily side.

D- It was an easy drinker. I could have more than 1 in a sitting.

Overall- It was a refreshing beer after sitting on the beach and poolside in the Florida sun with temps topping 80F.

3.4/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Solid gold with excellent suspended yeast in the midst of the carbonation.

Smell: Sweet honey and wet hay.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Malted biscuit and a slightly watery/slick finish. Very tame, but rather refreshing for an ale.

Overall Drinkability: A refreshing if not great ale.

Somehow ended up with a bottle of this from a BOTMC delivery. Have drunk gallons of this in the keys, imagine that I have never reviewed it until now. Bueno, lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a sweet hoppiness with an apparent big malt base. Pours into my recently rediscovered sam's perfect pint as a cloudy bright yellow with a clingy foamy off white macro-bubble head. Taste is floral off the bat then a malt base is smoothly bitter, all transitioning to a sweet and sour finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not your pale ales experts brew but the taste brings me back to the keys, and that ups the overall, considerably.
