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.

12 oz can poured into a snifter. No freshness info.

Pours out a cloudy deep orange copper color. Retains a nice full slightly off white colored head with pretty good lacing.

Smells a little bit like it's past it's prime. Old cardboard, stale hops a bit woody. Along with that some very light grapefruit citrus, resinous aromas.

The taste is a bit better than the aroma. Still has some stale hop, wet cardboard taste, but not as bad. Slight resinous piney woody hops balanced a bit by some biscuity, light toasted malt.

Average mouthfeel for a pale, maybe a hint of tartness perhaps from the age of this beer.

I'm guessing this is around a year old. Really a shame. Could've greatly benefitted from a canned on date.

Tried this on tap at one of my favorite restaurants. They were out of what I wanted, so I went with something local. The appearance is pretty weak for a pale ale. It was very clear and only slightly darker than an American macro. The head was mediocre, but did have a nice lace.

The smell resembled no other pale ale I can recall. Smelled like an American macro.

The taste did nothing to change my opinion that this really is an American macro because it tasted like a pilsner I can get anywhere, only slightly more hoppy. Tastes like an American macro.

Felt like an American macro. A bit more bitter, but mostly like an American macro.

Overall, this was pretty bad. It was so bad that my next drink was a glass of water. Ultimately I contend that this isn't really a pale ale, but actually an American macro.

A- pours an amber color with a small fizzy white head, decent retention

S- grainy malty mash with some sweet caramel notes, barnyard, grainy and earthy

T- flavor pretty much follows aroma, grainy and earthy was flavors of dried hay, there's some light hop bitterness on the finish

M- medium body with low carbonation, slick mouthfeel and finish

O- not exactly what I would expect from a pale ale, very raw and grainy

A lovely red with a nice foamy white head.

Aroma of citrus hops and caramel.

Sharp metallic hop flavor mix with grainy cereal notes. Bitter.

Nice body that's not light or watery.

Overall a nice pale ale. Certainly one that flirts with IPA territory.
