I drank and loved classic east coast ipa. my early years were ballantine ipa. that said this fruity ipa with
Grapefruit finish just makes sense in south Florida. you an buy this ale everywhere.. The local craft beers are doing variations of this style and many are a little better but you can,t buy them in 7 11 type stores. Florida has its own style ipa and this brew deserves respect

Poured from 12 oz can dated 8/23/18 , so about a month old. into the test glass.
A - Deep copper color, slightly opaque, stunning frothy cap.
S - Nice blend of citrus and pine, pineapple rings, sweet malt and orange reduction.
T - Follows the nose well, add a bit of spicy hops, solid malt base.
M - Medium in body, water profile is not to soft, which I like, the start is tangy, the mid adds the bitterness, and the final is semi sweet .
O - A very good beer, the malt base and hop treatment are like Fred and Ginger, effortless in its balance.
Well done.

An easy to find IPA that is refreshing and from first to last. It's not overly bitter, but maintains its taste thru the glass. It never loses flavor from first sip. Reasonably priced.
