Notes/Commercial Description:
Napoleon never set foot on Florida’s shores, but if he did, we’re sure he’d be looking for a way to conquer the land from coast to coast. He’d probably have some supporters – after all, the French helped settle Pensacola.

Our Li’l Napoleon was christened in the name of all short bastards – the good, the bad and the infamous. Strong and hoppy, Li’l Napoleon can sneak up on you if you let it. With a smooth caramel and honey finish, you’ll want to have a second. And probably a third.

Take time to savor the good ole days, when the French had power and Florida was a territory waiting to be developed. We reckon Napoleon would be proud of the IPA that bears his name. (Aside from his hatred of all things English, naturally).

Pint served at brewery.

IBU = 70

A well made IPA with substantial hop flavor but lots of malt for balance. Malt is at least as strong as the hops in the aroma, and surprisingly pronounced in hte inital taste, but this IPA has a strong biter hop finish.

A - Clear dark amber. Off-white head has moderate retention; medium carbonation.

Malt/hop balance too high for style? probably, but this was forgivable given the fine mix of flavors. Recommended.

Serving type: on-tap
