12oz can poured into a pint glass. CANNED ON DEC. 17th, 2012. Really happy I have access to cans of this, it really keeps the hops fresh.
A: Pours a hazy amber with a brief, off white head. Sticky lacing.
S: OMG so much hoppage. Big bright grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, sweet malt and a touch of weed-like dankness at the very end. Man does this smell great!
T: Tastes almost exactly like it smells, bittersweet citrus rinds smashed with tropical fruits, a hit of cereal-like malt and a sticky, resiny bitterness that makes you want to experience that first sweetness again.
M: Rather sublime, barely noticeable carbonation with how nicely sticky this beer is. It coats my tongue with a numbing stickiness I really dig.
O: Perhaps a tad too bitter, lacking in head retention. Not a trace of alcohol to be found in the nose, taste or mouthfeel, which is rather impressive for a 7.5% single IPA. All in all a really, really juicy IPA that is absolutely perfect for the oppressive humidity in Florida. SO happy I live just on the opposite coast from them, my fridge will never be without at least one can of this.

This is a very good tasting beer with high marks for drinkability, smell, and taste.
A - This beer looks charming. It pours a dark orange with a lot of lacing as the glass empties. There is goodness (particles) floating in the beer.
S - Lovely rich smell of sweet citrus, and pine.
T - Juicy grapefruit/cirtus with hop and a touch of piney flavor.
M - Outstanding. Subdued, dense carbonation that expands in your mouth.
O - Very yummy and session drinkable.
This reminds me of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, but with more flavor and complexity.
This beer reminds me of the beach and the sun. This is a very nice beer with a great future.
