12oz bottle poured into pint glass.
Light orange-copper liquid, thin off-white head clears quickly, minimal Belgian lace as the brew is consumed.
Aroma of fruit, oranges, pineapple, sweet hops.
Front loaded hoppy bitterness, smoothed by mellow malts, nice full body, lingering piney aftertaste.
Nice IPA overall. If I lived in FLA full time this may be my go to IPA. As it is, coming from the NEO region, my options are limitless, and I would much rather have a GLBC Commodore Perry or Fathead's Headhunter.

In a teku
A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4
S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4
T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4
M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4
Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
