Great beer. Typically, living in Colorado there's co beer and west coast beer. But Florida beer? shit. this is great.

A - Nice amber appearance with perfect carbonation. Nice lacing from a thin but persistent foam layer.

S - Less than expected, but a clean, wonderful and continuous bouquet of fruity hops.

T - Straight up clean hops, bright and lively with the perfect malt balance. This one drinks so much easier than its ABV. Initial bitterness is smoothed out by a wonderful and clean base beer profile. Obvious attention to brewing.

M - Perfect. Lively and clean.

O - Just an awesome IPA that is unique without being cute.
