On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Large off-white head, high retention. Soapy lacing, then some clear, oily, slick lacing. Aroma includes lemon, grapefruit and some fresh mowed grass. Taste has a nice malt sweetness in the background but mainly includes citrusy lemon, lemon peel, pine and slight alcohol. Mouthfeel actually is thicker than expected and that I remember in the past, really lingering on and tingling the tongue for a hot minute. Unique and delicious.

glad i got a chance to try all of these on my florida trip back in april. served into a pint glass.

golden amber in color with a nice head of white that was about two inches at first but then slowly settled down into a rich lacing that coated the sides of the glass. Such a sweet, sharp citrus aroma coming off of this one, simply amazing. Like pineapple and grapefruit juice mixed in a glass and hit with a shot of orange, it was simply amazing. First sip sucked the moisture from my palate. Lip smacking good. Sharp, biting citrus flavor, pineapple and grapefruit rule the day here as the richness and juiceness is simply overwhelming. Each sip seemed to get sharper, crisper then the one before.

On tap at Stubbies, beer is orange and hazy with a thin white head of small bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Served a little too cold perhaps but so far so good.

The aroma has a nice hop chewiness with great aromatic pininess with some fruit / citrus (amarillo aroma) and lots of it, there is some malt that sneaks through but appropriate amounts, smells good.

I think they really nailed the bitterness of this beer well. It has this nice chewiness to the whole thing. Great body, mildly sweet, very bitter, the hops are the star here. It reminds me mildly of Pliny (somewhat). Not quite as good in my opinion but it is a stellar IPA all around. I'd have it again for sure.

On-tap at the tasting room. Hazy orange with close to no head. Smell: caramel, orange, a little tropical fruit sweetness. Taste: sweet caramel, candied citrus, a bit leafy. A little pineapple-esque. Toffee again as it starts to dry out slightly at the end of the sip. It's quite sweet which balances out the intended mega-ibus. Feel is on the syrupy side of things. Too balanced (sweet) for me, but worth a try.

On-tap at the Hunaphu release... Pours a murky dark gold. The head off white rises a couple fingers, gone quickly, ok lace... The aroma is caramel malt with citrus, alcohol, and some hops on the finish. Ok... The taste is a little too strong with too much alcohol and just a little blah, not very flavorful. Alcohol with generic hops.

Not a big fan of this, nothing new.

notes from phone

A- Hazy golden body with an airy white head

S- Grassy hops, not a whole lot else...

T- Grassy/hay hops up front, some sweet malts in the middle to balance and a faint bitterness finishes

M- Medium-bodied, good level of carbonation, crisp finish

D- Solid beer and a local so I'm sure that tempers me a bit so I will certainly return!

Had this homecoming weekend in Gainesville @ Stubbie's. Beautiful deep golden, hazy, nice foamy white head. Big floral notes with some grassy, earthy tones. The flavor it bitter throughout. Nice sweet malts hidden in there, probably some Maris Otter pale malt used from what it tastes like. There is a bit of astringency from all the hops used. The alcohol warms you quickly so it probably is not one you want to sit and drink all night. Body is filling and carbonation is mild.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color and a decent head that leaves a bit of lace behind

Smell: Pine and pith and balanced out by caramel elements

Taste: The caramel flavors appear first, followed by the piney bitterness that balances out mid-palate; after the swallow, the malty flavors surge forward though there is a lingering hoppy bitterness

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: This beer fits into the balanced DIPA category; while hops abound, there is a lot of malty presence from start to finish
