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.

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
