Had this beer on tap at House of Beer in Orlando.

Apperance: Poured a nice amber color with a nice 1/2 inch head. Lacing was decent.

Smell: Nice hoppy aromas with hints of pine, grass and grapefruit

Taste: Similar to the aroma. A very well balanced IPA with a nice malty sweetness to balance the hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: A very sessionable IPA from a local Florida brewery!

Served in a bottle at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a clear copper in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head which has very good retention properties - there is about 50% of the head remaining with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel malts with stronger aromas of citrus/grapefruit and tropical fruit hops.

T: Very light amounts of bitterness upfront from the citrus/grapefruit hops but there is a strong citrus/grapefruit flavor. After that, there is some caramel malt sweetness and the finish has lots of notes of tropical fruits.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Not sure if this was the freshest bottle but it was still really enjoyable. Definitely a quality beer that I would be happy to have again - I enjoyed the flavors.
