It's just alright. This is a brewery that gives the impression of not being very hop-centric, and IPAs are just not really their thing, apparently. It's dark amber, decent head but not much aroma, kind of piney and citrusy but subdued. The malt dominates and the whole thing is kind of muddy. Finish fails to integrate or convince you that you made the right decision in ordering.

Amber hued and extremely murky in appearance. There's a quarter inch of tan to beige resting on top. There is some moderate lacing. The aroma is difficult to seek out but I do get some citrus notes. The flavor is a dulled citrus and grapefruit dominated IPA. The light malt is clearly overwhelmed by the hops. The intense hopping causes a deep hop burn on the tongue.

Had a 12oz can that poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is fruity with citrus hops and contrasting to the biscuit malts. The taste is moderately bitter with some bread-like sweetness. It was moderately carbonated and overall was a pretty good beer. Would like to try it on tap next time I'm in Jacksonville.

12oz can recently purchased and consumed while in the area of the brewery. It appears a copper color with a white head that fades leaving patchy webs of lace.

The aroma is fruity and pulpy with citrus hops and contrasting caramel to biscuit grain backing.

The taste is pulpy bitterness lightly fruity and floral with ample resinous bitterness that lasts with some bready grain sweetness to contrast.

This is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Overall a decent brew but nothing wowing about it.
