12 oz. can purchased at the Craft Beer Outlet in Philly.
Poured into a tulip.

A- Clear, golden-burnt orange, with a light and fizzy one finger head. Off-white in color and retains fairly well, with the lacing sliding slowly back into the beer.

S- Nose stinging of floral and citrus notes, with a sweet malt undertone.

T- Malty, almost a caramel off the bat, but with a bitter punch of citrus and a complementary earthy hop mellowness.

M- Unbelievably not bitter, light carbonation, on a medium light body. The finish brings a mellow bitter dryness, only beckoning in more beer!

O- I thought this was fantastic. I noticed some reviewers saying this was more a pale ale than an IPA, but I think not. It is highly hopped like any other IPA, but it is so mellow. Who ever said IPAs had to be highly bitter? I look forward to the next time I drink this beer.

this is nothing special its just average hardly any hop flavor no fruits characters
could barely taste the hops should be labeled a pale ale not a IPA
it was like drinking bitter water, with no fruit flavors as you get in a good IPA like Pliny or hopslam
nothing special i won't have a 2nd i will stick to good beer its not brewed in florida
