Appearance: Beautiful deep golden with a ring of foam.

Aroma: A slight malt can be detected. The hops contribute a piney, citrus component.

Taste: Hoppy without being over-the-top. Maltiness comes through and has a toasty component. There is an astringent grapefruit aftertaste. 

Mouthfeel: The carbonation is low to moderate with fine bubbles. This beer has a fairly light body.

Overall: As one who prefers malty beers, I enjoyed this IPA as it had an interesting and not overpowering hops profile that let the maltiness come through. I'll look for this beer again while we're in Florida.

On tap at the brewery.
The pour was clear and dark amber, with a very durable off-white head that left a moderate amount of sticky lacing on the glass. The nose features piney and, to a lesser extent, citrus hop notes. Given this, the flavor is less harsh than expected, with a solid if subtle malt base. Relatively full bodied for an IPA, with near medium carbonation. ABV partially hidden.
