On tap at Bonnie & Reed's in Hollywood Beach. Piney and dank with lots of hop presence - nice drinking. Paired well with a blackened mahi sandwich and fries.

A - Pours an orange copper colour with a hint of haze. About a finger of off-white head that dissipated fairly quickly but leaves plenty of lacing.
S - Dry, hoppy notes up front, pine, malts, hints of citrus. Barely detectable smell of alcohol.
T - Mild hop bitterness, pine and resin, citrus. Very easy-drinking for an IPA.
M - Lively carbonation, medium-sized bubbles that wake up the tastebuds.
O - A decent lively IPA that doesn't push the envelope.
