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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: single finger head with excellent retention on a hazy copper-amber body.

S: mostly musty and pungent hops and some sweet caramel malts.

T: Disappointing as I feel it is overly malted with the hops minor players in the flavor contributing mostly some pine and citrus notes with slight grass bitterness.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A little overboard on the malts which is the discretion of the brewer but I like these on the hoppier side.

I'm hitting another Florida brew today.

I got a bottle of this and poured into a glass. Slight off-white color to the head - large bubbles, nice continual flow from the bottom of the glass. It left a good bit of lacing on the glass - but died pretty quickly.

This is a moderate colored pale ale - slightly more brown that I expected.

The nose is heavily yeasty - thick and bready with just a hint of something belgian-ish. Slightly hot.

Flavor is fine - it's much more lightly hopped than I expected. Slight harshness to the flavor.

I'm usually looking for a cleaner finish to a pale ale.

This is a refreshing beer.

I would say that it's not remarkable but is certainly serviceable.
