Florida Brewing Company Devil's Triangle IPA
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "14274"
$1.50 @ Trader Joe's #766, Tampa FL

Devil's Triangle, despite the ominous name, is a basic and straightforward American IPA. It's clear, golden in color, and displays a frothy white head that holds well and leaves some decent lacing behind. The aroma delivers a waft of bright citrus over a sweet note of malt; and the flavor adds a bit of yeasty fruitiness (apple, soft sweet red berries), some pleasantly smooth pine, and a solid, anchoring bitterness. The pine and bitterness do build a little bit on the palate as you progress through the glass, but it's never 'too bitter' or 'too hoppy' to remain accessible, and highly drinkable.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!

A- Goldenrod type of color with chunks of yeast suspended in the beer. The head is nice with about 3 fingers and foamy mountainous. Lacing is gorgeous as well. reverse bottle cap type lacing.

S- faint citrus hops and that's pretty much it.

F- The citrus/grapefruit hops come out more pronounced in the flavor. a bitter backend to the drink.

M- dry and hoppy like and IPA but the grapefruit hops come off as underipened almost. The dry flavor continues down the throat which is not good for me.

O- not a bad brew but the citrus hops, there is just something off about it. It tastes more spoiled or not as sharp as it could be.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high frothy beige colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the pine resin hops are stronger and stand out the most and linger through the finish. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that the taste had a very good balance between the grapefruit and pine resin flavors.

Devil's Triangle pours a golden yellow color with a white head from a brown 32 ounce flip top growler. The aroma is very hoppy. The flavor is very nice also, quite hoppy, citrus and pine notes dominate. There really isn't much malt flavor that is noticeable. Quite drinkable and enjoyable.

Not too bad but maybe a little malty for me taste.

Light amber in color with a puffy white head. There are also lots and lots of clumps of yeast, which would probably turn off a lot of folks who don't like seeing chunks in their beer. Not a problem for me.

Big citrus hop aroma.

Big vegetal hop flavors and big, big bitterness. Soapy, which is a good thing.

Big body.

I know that this and Swamp Ape are different beers, and that this is probably close to half the strength, but this is the better one.

Single finger head with some lace on a cloudy golden with brown hues body. Grapefruit and orange sweetness aroma, little in the way of malts. Flavors are a little disjointed with pine resin and generic pine citrus. Malts are understated and mostly seem to be pale and toasted. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one isn't very memorable and may be too tart and bitter. May try something else before this one.
