First had: on tap at the Corner Cafe, Tequesta, FL

A good basic APA here. Clearish amber pour with a small cap of white head that displayed a bit of retention and nice lacing. Good melding of citrusy hops and caramel malts in the aroma. Similar taste, nice balance of crisp citrus and earthy hops with biscuity malts that lent a mild sweetness, keeping the bitterness in check. Medium body, easily drinkable. After a small taster, I had no problem going in for a full pour.

Had it on tap as part of a flight and then took a growler home which i'm drinking as i write this.

Pours a very petty amber, darker than your average pale ale, above average lacing.

Pine and a bit of citrus with a nice bit of malt in the back.

Hops are dominant in the entrance, pine and citrus like the smell, a hint of malty sweetness to balance it all out, delicious.

Very creamy for a pale ale, resinous but not sticky medium carbonation.

Overall a very good beer, super drinkable and very unique for it's class. Good job Tequesta, i'll be coming back for more.

On-tap at World of Beer Coconut Creek, FL

Every chance to get Florida Beer on Draft (in Florida) I try it, especially when its such a new brewery:

A- Great orange amber hue with translucent light penetration. Bubbles run thru the beer to a thin 1/4" bubbly yellowish head. Dissipates but carbonation leaves some lacing while cold.

S- Spicy, citrusy hop scent but not overpowering.

T- Follows smell comes on medium hops and mid-way goes to the more bitter side of a grapefruit flavor ending on a very hoppy bitter note. Although I appreciate this flavor, it wasn't what I expected with the barley and description of it. Not much grain/barley or malt balance to the APA except at the start of sip.

M- Thin body ale w/ good carbonation, best while still cold. Dryness also adds to bitter hop finish on the back of the tongue. would like more malt or barley to thicken the body.

D- If I was looking for a great hoppy beer I would drink this again for sure. That night though I wasn't totally expecting it to predominate in this brew.

Keep sending WOB your kegs tequesta, they're much appreciated!

On tap at the brewery, 1/26/12

A-pour is a clear orange amber with a frothy white head. Great retention.

S-biscuit malt with a strong citrus hop note. Nicely aromatic and appealing.

T-hop forward huge citrus and earthy hops but the biscuit malt base is very solid. Excellent balance keeps this in the pale category rather than IPA but this is my kind of pale.

M-medium bodied, crisp, dry.

O-excellent pale ale, love the hops. Great malt balance.
