Fairly standard IPA from a can. Nothing about it really stands out.

Pretty plain all around. Would say the same thing for every category. Plain plain and plain. Not bad but not good.

(From a can, purchased at Trader Joe's) I had high expectations, but it's just not that great an IPA, especially compared to other Florida IPAs like Funky Buddha, Cigar City, and Proof. Drinkable, certainly, but meh.

L: Hazy dark orange, with a small off-white head. Darker for an IPA.

S: Muted citrus hops, and sweet malt.

T: This surprised me a bit. Sweet maltyness, then a touch of fruity bitterness, then more malt. Definitely more malty than your average IPA. Bitterness dies off and the aftertaste is more sweet, almost carmely malt.

F: Medium bodied and very smooth.

O: Lately I've described myself as a hophead, but I do love a good malty beer. This is somewhere in between. Very drinkable, and the bitterness isn't really there. I could see how some with disapprove and say that this Beer doesn't do a good job of standing out. However, I'd drink it again. I'd recommend it to someone who is easily put off by more hopforward IPAs.

12 oz can poured in an American pint, very drinkable, and well balanced.

Can. Pours a hazy orange color with an off-white head. Aroma is muted. Light citrus and a plain, malty sweetness. Flavor is decently dull as well. Citrus, subtle bitterness and a very agreeable maltiness. It's pretty bland. Pretty balanced. Left me wanting much more. Medium bodied. Didn't perceive much bitterness. Good carbonation. Won't remember this beer.
