2.45/5  rDev -30.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa

Two APAs here, and neither really worth talking about. Clear yellowish amber pour on this one, with a white head that retained rather well and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Light citrus hops in the nose, bready malt base. Taste was on the weak side, slightly more dominant citrusy hops, and bready malt sweetness. Light-medium body, watery, fairly clean and dry in the finish. Meh.

3.05/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours clear, a very dark amber color. Good-sized, tight, tiny-bubbled, white head. Really good retention and great lacing.
Smell is hops and a light lemon candy note with just a faint hint of malt.
Taste is hops/resin, very light lemon candy with just a touch of malt to be found.
Light/medium body with a medium effervescence that is focused on the tip of the tongue. Aftertaste is more balanced. A slight dryness and fairly clean finish. A bit too close to an IPA for me. In fact, more of an IPA to my palate than their Old Elephant Foot IPA was. Pretty good especially if you like the hoppier IPA-like beers.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. A mild, decent Cascade bitterness, only. Cloudy yellow, a little white head and lots of lace. Suitable carbonation. A bit mediocre for the style, but one could get by if this was the only beer available in town. Neutral aroma, mouthfeel.

3.28/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale clear tan color, not much of an off white head. Bitter hop smell. Taste was stong, bitter, overly hopped. Not much to balance it. Tasted alot like their Mad Hopper Pale Ale. Thin resiny feel, slippery finish. Not much more than big hop bitterness. A bit of a letdown, after the name. I don't get it.

3.35/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

The brewery describes this beer as an American Pale Ale brewed with 2-row American grains and a small amount of light crystal malt for a slight malty flavor; hopped with Cascade. I tried it on cask, though they also had it on tap. I believe the cask version is dry-hopped with more Cascade.

Aroma: a grassy, hop aroma up front (indicative of dry-hopping), a bit of maltiness underneath, some cheesy-hop aroma in there too (perhaps the dry-hops were a little old on this batch).

Apearance: light copper, good clarity despite being casked, creamy white head, a fair amount of lacing from the cohesive head

Flavor: a well-balanced sweetness/bitterness and a long, bitter finish. The hop bittereness are pretty assertive up front. Some appley fruitiness and a citrusy, Cascade finish.

Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, creamy texture, low carbonation

Despite the flaws in this sample (cheesy-hop aroma and dirty line), it is an enjoyable beer. It wouldn't surprise me if this was one of their best sellers.


*At the time of this tasting, I detected an off-flavor indictative of a dirty beer line.

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

Had this beer at the Brew pub in Ybor City Fl. Served in a chilled pint glass which probably affected the head. Small white head, fades fairly fast with some lacing. Nice clear, light amber color.

Aroma of citrus hops. Fairly prominent for an APA.

Flavor is citrus hops with some balancing bready malt. Solid enough flavor for an APA.

Mouthfeel is crisp and rich enough.

Nothing exceptional, just a solid, tasty beer.

5.2% a.b.v. is your session beer? Hell, the folks at Tampa Bay Brewing must really support getting your buzz on before Lightning games.

This pour was just OK, with no off notes in nose or taste. I had been warned that Florida water could interfere with brewing great beer, but did not necessarily find that to be the case. Judiciously hopped pale ale in an American style, meaning the malt is just a touch... overlooked while the slant seems to be the bittering. The mouthfeel was commendably full and round. While wishing for more complexity (which I found in this brewery's "Wedding Celebration,") I found this selection drinkable.

Served on draft, this pale ale arrived with little head, and a faint aroma. Pale in color, with an almost light beer color character. Tastes of mild hops and light malt. The head wasn't helped with a low carbonation, and therefore a lesser than ideal mouthfeel. This beer had good flavor, and might make a good session beer. It seemed to me, for a draft beer, this should have had more aroma, head and flavor.

3.68/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Made with 2-row pale and light crystal malts, hopped with Cascade and Liberty. Clear and light-copper in color, forming a small off-white head with minimal retention and lacing. Fragrant Cascade hops start off the aroma, with mild toasty pale malts detectable. Taste is of pungent Cascade hops with a bitter grapefruit rind character, and a lightly husken aftertaste. Mouthfeel is crisp and acidic with a medium body.

3.7/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Crystal clear, pale yellow with a creamy topper two fingers high that fades slow and leaves nice lacing.

The aroma is clean with citrus hints on a lightly breaded backbone.

The flavor is clean with nice toasty notes, nutty hints, and citrus balance of lemon and orange zest.

Clean, crisp, and refreshing!

Overall, a very easy drinking, refreshing beer.
