Poured on-tap at the brewery in JAX, this beer was poured in a pint glass. The beer pours a cloudy yellowish orange-gold coloring with a very thin film of off white, small bubbled head. Light, roasty hops characteristics on the nose. There are strong sweet and syrupy caramel flavors in the backbone of this beer, with subtle peppery hops that mingle throughout, as well as mainline the finish. The aftertaste is almost astringent it's so dry. Creaminess to the aftertaste is very confusing considering the finish, but the beer is pretty damn tasty.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear copper with a one-finger white head and good lacing.

S: Tropical fruit, citrus, and pine hops with a lighter malt aroma in the background.

T: Tropical fruit & citrus pith hops, biscuit malt. Finish seems to be mango & grapefruit bitterness.

M: Heavier mouthfeel for an APA, but what I would consider medium for an IPA. Good amount of carbonation on tongue. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: I thought this was a pretty good beer. Not necessarily one I'd actively seek out again but definitely serviceable. My biggest complaint was that it seemed overly hopped to be categorized as an APA.

It has a pleasant amber color and forms a nice foamy head and clings to the glass. The smell is mostly hops. The caramel and malt flavors are subtle. The citrus - grapefruit - and hops flavors are dominant on the palate, maybe a touch of bitterness. Being a fan of IPAs, it approaches that style.

A very drinkable pale ale. Personally, a littel less citrus or moe caramel/malt flavor would be ideal.

12 oz. can poured into a nonic pint. Thanks to Brendan for sending this one.

A - Pours the color of a shiny penny with great clarity. One finger of off-white head shows good retention and leaves a full lacing down the side of the glass.

S - Floral hops and grains.

T - Buttery malt, some floral hops, and spice.

M - Very smooth with medium body and micro-carbonation. Clean finish.

O - I was impressed by this APA. Perfect balance for the style and exceptional drinkability. Good floral hop presence and full flavored. I would definitely get this as a session beer if it were available to me.

Pours a clear dark orange with a big, white head.

Smells of slightly pine and grapefruit hops with some floral notes and caramel malt.

Taste is caramel grapefruit up front that goes into a more bready middle with notes of pine before ending on a grapefruit and stone fruit finish. Slightly astringent and vegetal but pretty enjoyable overall.

Ligher body with low carbonation works well enough.

A caramel malt and grapefruit/pine hop forward pale ale that is workmanlike....not that that's a bad thing.

On tap at Kickbacks served in a standard pint. The brew appears a clear burnt copper color with an off-white head and streaming carbonarion. A thin layering maintains across the top from the rising bubbles that lasts throughout the duration.

The smell is fruity and floral with a light toasty caramel grain quality that accents the sweetness of the hop quality quite nicely. A touch of alcohol is noted and increases in boldness as the brew warms up.

The taste is fruity and floral from the hops with a backing of caramel maltiness. The malt gets toasty towards the back. Some modest bitterness increases as it warms and has a nice herbal to mineral finish. Some yeasty notes are evident in the aftertaste.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A decent take on the style overall but nothing to get worked up about. I wouldnt hesitate to order this again if options were slim but considering the vast offerings at kickbacks...onward to something else.

Poured from the can into a left hand glass.

Im drinking this beer as a celebration of finishing my most recent backpacing trip. Had it many times on tap including one of my first craft beers. first time in can though.

A-pours a deep caramel orange with nice head that slowly dissapates into a white cover over the beer.

S-smells delicious. Has a nice piney hop scent with a maltiness in the background.

T-Tastes of a thin caramel malty flavor up front with a well balanced hop bite at the finish.

MF-fairly thin body, but well balanced and fits the beer nicely.

O-This is a damn good beer. On tap all over jax and is always pleasant.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours a thick finger of frothy ivory foam which doesn't stick around too long. Color is great, though.

Smell: sweet malt with a big dose of citrusy, Cascade-y hops. Not bad, but a little homebrew-ey. Perhaps it is recipe formulation -- a very run-of-the-mill APA.

Taste: flavor tracks with the aroma, with a pretty strong bitterness toward the end. Decent, but nothing special going on here.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: a drinkable, sessionable pale ale. I like it for this, although it's nothing new flavor-wise.

I received this can from a BIF, and I am excited to try something new from this Florida brewery.

I poured the can into my over-sized tulip glass, and initially I had about three fingers of foam. This foam died down to a very thin scum over the moderately dark orange beer.

Off the top I get mild citrus with minimal malt presence. Seems appropriate for a pale ale.

The flavor is mild and clean. I get more of the citrus hopping, and something else there. It is almost like a little bit of tangerine or sweet orange. It mellows this beer well.

This is a very drinkable beer. Nothing there is so unbelievably challenging. Just a good example of an easy drinking pale.
