As a Florida native and Jai Alai fan, I may be a bit biased on this beer- but hopefully my general feeling of ambivalence towards IPA's will even out my review. Let me start off by saying that it is not as well-balanced, in my opinion, as Bell's Two-Hearted or Longhammer IPA; however, it is amazing for a hyper-hop brew. As others have mentioned, it is distinctively fruity, tasting like grapefruits and passion fruits. The malt is very light without being unnoticeable, and the high alcohol-content is masked by some kind of . . . voodoo sacrifice? It is beautiful, truly. It is not the best . . . but perhaps among the best of the IPA's.

From a can that was canned 12/13/13. Poured into a Samual smith pin glass
A: orange deep color. Lots a foam head and lots of lacing. Good head retention too.
S: nice citrus overtones of the hops. Kind of lemonish more than grapefruit to me. Not overpowering
M: full feel, hop thickness.
T: Soild taste. Lots of hops but not overpowering. To me very much like a west Coast of the US as opposed to the west coast of Florida. Finish of the same citrus you smelled initially.
Overall a very Soild IPA. Very Soild as the flag bearer IPA of the brewery. Drinkable too, not exactly a session beer but ou can easily drink a few and on a warm day it would do nicely as opposed to some Heavier IPA. Like it a great deal and good for the price point.
