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.

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.

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.
