Pours a semi-clear golden with a fine white head. Lovely and ornate lacing.

Nice pleasant citrus hops aroma, with a touch of grainy malts. Nice.

Taste is smooth and hoppy, with citrus and pine character and plenty of malts. This is an easygoing and enjoyable IPA -- nothing huge or noteworthy, but certainly well-done. I'd have another.

My brother picked this up for me during spring break ‘13 in Florida. This pours a semi-clear amber color with a frothy beige head. There is a mild scent of citrus and hops giving off a very inviting aroma. The taste is surprisingly good for the rating as it’s very hoppy and full of flavor. It’s perhaps slightly thinner than some of the best IPAs, but otherwise this is great! I think it deserves a rating in the high 80’s to low 90’s when compared to other brews.

Good stuff. Brewed by Florida Beer Co. for a local company, this has a nice balance of hops and malt. Slightly floral and slightly citrus, but it does seem like a slight something is missing.

If you’re ever on scenic 30A stop by Bud and Allie’s for some Grayton Beer battered onion rings.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear, creamy-like white foam, toasted straw color
S: Faint floral hoppiness with a touch of earthiness. The malt in the nose is sweet with light caramel and biscuit. (I can almost put my finger on the variety maybe Chinook?),
T: Firm hoppiness but not overly bitter. Enjoyable. The malt is reminiscent of the malt in the nose. The hop profile makes me think Chinook again. Spicy, but a touch of floral
M: medium body
Overall: Enjoyable. I would definitely consider this a well made clean beer. I look forward to trying the Pale ale.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #58 (November 2011):

LOOK: Bright golden orange

SMELL: Spicy, spearmint, citric zest, shortbread, wild herbs, bready grain, dried grass, ripe pears

TASTE: Malty front, smooth, bready, bitter, herbal, grassy, papaya, citric rind, dry crackers, bitter finish, warming alcohol

A pretty straightforward IPA, it talks balance and drinkability. The dryness toward the end really brings the hops to the palate, and they seem to stick there until another sip is taken … then it’s all repeated. A nice, sharp, aged cheddar would do well here, but it's still solid enough to hang on its own.

a - poured a one finger thick eggshell colored head into a shaker glass that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a bright and bubbly amber color.
s - very malt forward IPA. lots of toffee, toasted bread, grain with some floral hops.
t - taste is hoppier than the aroma. hints of pine with some floral hops as well. a little biscuity and spicy underneath.
m - medium and slick mouthfeel.
o - very nice, easy-drinking accessible IPA. i would have liked more of a hop nose but this is a nice offering from a new beer company.
