Had this on tap at Sloppy Joe's on Duval Street at Key West and served in a plastic cup. I fear the cup may have distorted my opinion but here goes.
The body had great color, auburn like redness with a stiff head. The nose was standard IPA fare and somewhat light, with pine, earth, resins, some oily lupilin and a dry Graham cracker malt. The flavor was mostly piney, with some lemony fruit sweetness and a wheat malt graininess. Very easy to drink but drier than most. I liked this well enough but nothing set it apart from so much else out there.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Funky Buddha in Oakland Park, Florida 5/22/2014.
A- Hazy orange body, nice one finger white head with good retention leaving a thin film on the beer for the duration. Rings of lacing appear as the beer disappears.
S- Definitely getting Nelson Sauvin spices, some generic hop resins, some grapefruit and passion fruit aromas that are in the background; not a lot of complexity here.
F- Similar to the nose- a decent caramel pale malt backbone is supplanted by Nelson spiciness and a small bouquet of grapefruit and tangerine with a generic hop resin bitterness on the backend that doesn't evoke any particular character, It's solid, but nothing special here.
M- Medium bodied, dry and refreshing which is very nice. Carbonation is a bit above average, as it is a slightly fizzy beverage without being off-putting. Finish is a generic hop resin bitterness which is a major weakness of the beer.
O- A bit uninteresting of an IPA. It's not particularly balanced as there is not enough of the non-Nelson hop character to support the Nelson in balancing out the malt backbone. It seems the rest of the hops went towards bittering, which is all well and good but I was expecting more of the aromatic additions.
