A great beer. The tropical flavors explode. Tasted pineapple and a cornucopia of blended tropical. An amazing beer available in my supermarket.

I have to give Oscar Blues credit, whether it's from Tampa or Asheville the taste/color/smell is nearly identical. It's one of the top 3 beers I can buy day in and day out.

12oz canned 11/22/17 poured into a tumbler glass at fridge temp 7.5% ABV. The beer pours bright light orange honey in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin cap with some nice lacing. The aroma is orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit. The taste is slight caramel with accents of citrus and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a nice bitterness and balance to this beer. Overall, very good. I always look forward to finding this beer fresh.
