I am strictly an IPA drinker lately. I found this to be on the less complex side of the typical east coast style IPAs.Its bitterness is not quite that of the typical West Coast on initial taste, but does tend to linger much longer than it should. Very attractive amber color with a wonderful, fruity aroma, but again, the bitter flavor outweighs the sweet scent by a huge margin. So if you are not a regular IPA drinker, this is probably not the ideal entry beer. I did find that drinking from the bottle did somehow mask the bitterness quite a bit, so for me, this is better as a bottle beer on a hot, sunny Fl day... It doesn't quite hit a 4.0 on my scale, and even at 3.5, that may be generous. Good, but not great.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Medium amber and clear body with good clarity and an excellent and durable off-white head.

Aroma. nice malty aroma with plenty of sweet caramel ... but from an "IPA"? Some hop presence, but dominated by the malts.

Flavor: High malt load and balance as expected from the aroma, but there's a clear hop presence worthy of an APA (but not an IPA). Mild-medium bitterness.

Mouthfeel: smooth and somewhat creamy with fairly soft carbonation.

Florida Brewing Company Devil's Triangle IPA
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "14274"
$1.50 @ Trader Joe's #766, Tampa FL

Devil's Triangle, despite the ominous name, is a basic and straightforward American IPA. It's clear, golden in color, and displays a frothy white head that holds well and leaves some decent lacing behind. The aroma delivers a waft of bright citrus over a sweet note of malt; and the flavor adds a bit of yeasty fruitiness (apple, soft sweet red berries), some pleasantly smooth pine, and a solid, anchoring bitterness. The pine and bitterness do build a little bit on the palate as you progress through the glass, but it's never 'too bitter' or 'too hoppy' to remain accessible, and highly drinkable.

Wreckers Orlando 5/20/15

Pours orange with light head and ok retention. The smell might be the best part. Hopping with slight piny aroma. The taste is extremely bitter. From the first sip to the last it just is a bitter bomb. Burns out the taste buds. Not a that good.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!

A- Goldenrod type of color with chunks of yeast suspended in the beer. The head is nice with about 3 fingers and foamy mountainous. Lacing is gorgeous as well. reverse bottle cap type lacing.

S- faint citrus hops and that's pretty much it.

F- The citrus/grapefruit hops come out more pronounced in the flavor. a bitter backend to the drink.

M- dry and hoppy like and IPA but the grapefruit hops come off as underipened almost. The dry flavor continues down the throat which is not good for me.

O- not a bad brew but the citrus hops, there is just something off about it. It tastes more spoiled or not as sharp as it could be.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high frothy beige colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the pine resin hops are stronger and stand out the most and linger through the finish. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that the taste had a very good balance between the grapefruit and pine resin flavors.
