From notes 3/13. 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. 'Dry hopped with cascade for an awesome hop experience' on neck of bottle.

Pours a light copper with a thin layer of off white foam, light retention with fair to decent lace. A bit undercarbonated like many of thier brews and perhaps aimed at consumption direct from the bottle. Brewed and bottled, I believe, at a location other than the small brewery/tasting room here.

Nice citric hop aroma initially or after a good spin, yet less so when the beer glasses over given the light carbonation. it's a constant battle to bring forth the aroma, yet doing so only makes it even more difficult as the carbonation diminishes further. Pleasant overall though a bit reaching, yet nothing to deter.

Hint of caramel on the taste along with a neutral grain character, light sweetness on the finish accompanied by a light though not quite faint bitterness. Feel is smooth for an IPA given the light bitterness. Hop aroma is enhanced with warming but still subtle.

In the end this beer drinks like a Pale Ale. A Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with a bit less caramel and a bit less Cascade as well. An easy drinking warm climate Pale Ale.

Note: 6.0% on label....

Had two pints at Toucans in Clearwater Beach with lunch. Served in a chilled pint glass...still showed a decent size white head with better than average retention.

The aroma was a bit mild, some piney hops were noticible but overall...not a lot.

The flavor ws ok. I like IPAs and they don't all have to be world class. THis one had some piney hops bitterness, a little caramel malt for balance. Went fine with food. Light enough to throw back a few.

Mouthfeel was about medium richness. Crisp and a little bitter. Some oiliness/piney hops presence.

Wouldn't be something I would go out of the way for, but a nice complement for food.

Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from notes. Had at Snapper's on St. Pete Beach. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.

A: Hazy orange gold, with a thin white head and a few bubbles of carbonation.

S: Not a huge nose on this. Significant bready malt over citrus and a slight pine hop aroma.

T: Follows the nose, and overall not as hop-forward as should be expected from an IPA. Citrus, grapefruit rind, and mild pine over a smooth bready malt. Moderate bitterness in the hang.

M: Fairly light body, decent carbonation sensation, and only a mild alcohol presence.

O: I don't find anything particularly objectionable here, but it certainly does nothing to excite me or make me want to have another one. A very pedestrian attempt at an IPA - perhaps more suited to an APA, but even then I would expect a better hop bouquet.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Light gold color with a thick, white, long-lasting head with tiny streams of bubbles holding it up from underneath.

Nose has light hoppiness, but not incredibly strong. Flavor is a watered down hop without a lot of bitterness. Kind of an IPA for those not familiar with the style. Nothing overpowering, but with a little slick mouth feel.

Boring, but not offensive, and better than most beers I have found where I am staying in Florida.
