Reviewed from notes. 22 July 2013 can enjoyed on 8 August 2013.
A: Pours a lightly hazy deep golden amber with 1/2 finger of bubbly, off-white head. Head dissipates to ring. Some lacing down side of glass.
S: Wave of citrus alongside fresh, dank hoppiness. Grapefruit, pineapple fruit character. Clean malty sweetness.
T/M: Clean and crisp, dank fresh hops and citrusy flavors. Wheaty/bready malt sweetness mid-sip leads into lingering hop bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation -- quite nice.
O: Good, but not great. It may well be the best IPA made in FL, but I don't see myself hunting this one down aggressively in the future. That said, I'd be happy to drink it if it's what I had in my backyard, although there are some widely available IPAs I'd definitely take over it.
