On tap at BurgerFi in Winter Park, FL. Poured to a 16oz plastic cup—I’d prefer something else, but that’s how they served it so I’m just gonna roll with it.

Appearance (3.0): Pretty typical, kinda lackluster pour on tap: not much head (like, almost none at all), but with some modest, thin lacing on all sides, but doesn’t stick. The body is a deep amber color with a light chill haze—attractive enough. Very little retention.

Smell (3.5): A light, floral-grassy hop scent with some grapefruit juiciness underneath, which together dominate the nose—not much malt character, just a light undertone of the standard caramel / toffee aromas you find in an average homebrew kit-made IPA.

Taste (3.0): Relatively balanced, kind of malt-forward if anything. Toasted bread, some caramel undertones—but more toast than sweet. The hops hold a relatively modest presence, almost entirely a vegetal-floral bitterness without much hop flavor and none of the citrus character that the nose might have had. Some onion, but the hop flavors more or less stop there.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Better than average, but nothing special. Just about medium-bodied, with some modest carbonation that tingles nicely. It has a finish that’s neither dry nor slick—just sort of goes down easy.

Overall (3.0): Eh. It’s average. Nothing stands out, nor does anything suck. Just kind of does what it does, as an average, nominally hoppy, nominally pale, ale. It’s more of an amber, but it’d be average in that category, as well. Good enough for the price, if there isn’t much else around.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/23/2014. Pretty old, but we’ll give it a shot. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toasted bread, toffee, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toasted bread, light toffee, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid IPA, despite being a bit old. Good balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. Quite a bit malt forward, but not over done. A pretty enjoyable offering.
