On tap. 16 oz. into a plastic cup. It was at a pool bar in Key West, so I'll let the plastic cup slide.

L---Burnt orange color. Nice white head with good retention. It was in a plastic cup, that's really about all I have on its look.

S---Citrus (grapefruit & orange). A little bit of pine adds some bitterness to the sweet fruit.

T---Hoppy. Citrus is obvious, mostly orange, but the grapefruit hasn't totally disappeared. Some pine as well. A pretty good amount of bitterness.

F---Well enough carbonated. Smooth. Not juicy, but not dry, either, a medium mouthfeel.

O---High quality IPA. I suppose it probably got some bonus points out of me b/c I was at a pool in Key West, but screw it, that's where I had it, so it can have the bonus points. It's a Florida beer after all.

Very nice balance of mostly citrus fruits with some pine hop and not overly bitter at first then a punch of tangy orange hop flavor and caramel malt sweetness finishes this beer. Well done from the Sunshine State. Cans FTW!

12oz can dated 7/25/18 purchased at Town Center. Hazy amber color and citrusy nose. Citrus taste with orange, a touch of caramel malt and orange peel/grapefruit on the finish. A very good enjoyable beer.
