This beer quickly became a favorite of mine when I started spending time Southern Florida. A perfect warm summer day beer. But honestly, when isn't it a warm summer day in southern Florida. Perfectly hoppy with bright citrus in both the nose and taste. Delightfully carbonated and damn near perfect.

A-really a dark orange , burnt looking clean ale.
nice head when aggressively poured, with a pretty heavy lacing.

S-hops ,breads, sweetness, caramel , mangos , grapefruit , peaches , this mofo is a tropical explosion!

T-citrus , bready, citrus , tropical fruits , finishing with a malted sweetness that's almost a little heavy , then it dries the pallet.

M-medium to high bodied , pretty well carbonated ,not much tart bitterness.

O-this is one outstanding beer when fresh.
mine is dated 6/16/14 so its a little less than a week old.
that makes a huge difference in an IPA.

overall its a well balanced , less bitter IPA that is cheap and widely available.
cheers!
