Can from Tipples. No date visible. Pours copper, clear, with a big fluffy white to off white head. Nice floral nose with some light malts shining through, light tropical sweetness, grass. Not bad. Flavor is light grass, hint of fruit, watery malt, and a dirty macro lager finish. Very light bodied with medium carbonation . No this isn't terrible, but there are so many better options out there I don't really know why this exists.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into an Upland pint glass.
A: Hazy gold to orange, with some hop floaters, a one-finger white creamy head, and lots of small bubble visible carbonation.
S: Resin and citrus rind, bready malts that give some sweetness almost no caramelly aroma. Not a huge nose on this though.
T: Bright orangey citrus, citrus rind bitterness with less resin flavor, along with a touch of tropical fruit and spice hops. A healthy malt backbone lends a bready sweetness, again with minimal caramel aspect. The hang is a fairly mild citrus rind bitterness.
A: Full-bodied for IPA, good carbonation sensation, and fairly low alcohol presence.
O: Another tasty, canned, yet pretty standard American IPA. Nothing here to set it apart, or perhaps to actively seek - but it's a more than serviceable option to have around. Drink one if you happen to see it.

Love the name and the logo: Don't mess with a mad manatee!
Pours a lovely amber with a sticky tan head and some floaties of yeast.
Aroma of citrus-like hops.
Bracingly bitter with herbal hop flavors and a nice biscuit/waffle malt note. This one's about the hops, but there's some malt thrown in there, keeping this from being as dry as West Coast style IPAs.
Lovely body with plenty of oomph.
Overall an excellent IPA, further proof that Florida is making some of the best of the style. Seek it out.

Hazy orange color after being poured into pint glass. The head is actually the best part about this beer. Good lacing in glass.
Smell was fine but not as great as the can lead me to believe. Typical IPA smell only not as strong.
Mouthfeel is too thin.
Taste reminds me more of a hoppy pale ale.
This beer can be dangerous considering how light it seems to drink with the 7% ABV. I could pound these and not think anything of it. Tastes like something I'd drink at the pool. Pretty much no alcohol to be tasted.
