Served from bottle into a sampler shaker. Poured golden yellow with a minimal white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, mango, tropical fruit, and fruit hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, tropical fruit, fruit, tropical fruit hop, and mango. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. This brew really had a lot of fruit going on here. While this might sound like a win-win, it was really all that was going on in this one. It just felt like it was missing something to keep your palate intrigued. It is worth trying for the fruited pale ale lover out there, but if you enjoy kick in the face pales, I wouldn’t go out of my way to seek this one out.

First had: bottle at Riverside Market Cafe, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I figured I'd might as well try this as I probably won't see Mississippi or any of their beers any time soon. Pretty much standard APA here. Poured into a Bell's shaker pint, a clearish, copper liquid with about a 1/2 inch of frothy white head that sank to a thin layer and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, pale bready malts. No surprises here, but certainly nothing bad about it. Similar taste, citrus pith, piney, leafy in the hop department, mildly bitter, solid sugary malt base, toasted grains. Medium body, moderately dry and crisp. Nothing that hasn't been done before, but a good basic pale ale overall.

Dry hopped with whole leaf Cascade. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a golden color with a two-finger head with good retention.
Aromas of hops, citrus and pine.

Opens with hop bomb bitterness that tips the balance on malt. Taste profile moves into a subtle touch of pine and hint of grapefruit. Crisp and light bodied. Finishes dry with a sustained graininess.

DSPA tastes like an aggressively hopped American IPA with a trace of wheat character. Me likey.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing.

S: A somewhat muted aroma of hops, malt, and a hint of citrus.

T: Pretty much tasted like it smelled: Mild hops, a little malt in the finish, and a tinge of citrus as well. Not bad, but certainly could have used a bit more of a push.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: There are definitely worse APAs out there than this one, but there are better ones, too. Not undrinkable, but kind of forgettable.

12oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass...

Pours a nice golden amber with just a touch of haze. Three to four fingers of soft white, meringue-like head erupts and leaves chunks of lacing down the glass...

Loads of caramel and bready malt fill the nose, a very faint hint of some sweet/citrus hops, but mostly just a bunch of malt. Not sure on the age of this beer...hopefully it is at least somewhat fresh, but who knows how much the hops (if there were any to begin with) have faded...

Sweet and dry, somewhat of a stale hop bitterness, but more dry and musty that truly biting from a good hop presence. Beer is loaded with caramel/toffee sweet malt. Almost a grassy and earthy, dry finish. While not bad by any means, the flavors seem sort of "phoned in" and a bit muddled...

Medium bodied with good carbonation. Crisp and easy drinking, mostly refreshing although the finish is a bit too dry and lingering in the aftertaste...

Picked this one up as a single in Nashville on my way through town, not sure on the age of this beer but the store I bought it at has a pretty good reputation. Glad to knock another state off my list, would like to try this beer again knowing it was fresh so I could possibly offer a better review...
