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

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange. Small white head. Medium collar and some wisps.

Smell - Citrus hop. Orange and grapefruit. Lots of doughy malt.

Taste - More grapefruit here. Slight sweetness. Caramel malt. Bitter finish. Straightforward but good flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation. Bitter.

Overall - I'm not blown away, but it's good. There are better IPAs even in Florida.

4.14/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours hazy orange with two fingers head. Leaves light lacing.

Smells of orange zest. Slight earthy piney notes.

Taste is pleasantly albeit mildly bitter. I get mostly orange and tangerine notes. Jammy malty qualities.

Medium on the mouthfeel. Lighter carbonation.

Pleasant enough and quite enjoyable. But in the extremely competitive IPA market there quite a lot of beers of this caliber -- which for IPA lovers is a good thing.
