Nice malty backbone. This beer has changed over the years but still an excellent IPA.

Canned on 07/31/18 stamped on bottom of 12 oz. can:

Pours golden, with a thin white pillow head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of orange, caramel, and a touch of aspirin.

The is citric - especially orange. Lightly caramelized malt mixes in. Aspirin-like bitterness in the finish.

It has a firm medium body.

Leaves a bitterness without much flavor in the aftertaste.

Overall, it's a nice IPA (though nothing particularly special or outstanding.)

Very fun of the mill IPA. Really nothing truly special about this IMHO. The stouts from Cigar City Breweing are something really special. This was mundane.

ABSOLUTELY MY FAVORITE IPA OF ALL TIME!! Had the pleasure of trying this on draught multiple times on vacation in Clearwater, then I moved to Tampa shortly after. This beer is so great on draft and surprisingly great out of a can. Unfortunately they don’t bottle it but if you don’t live in an area that sells it often you should get your hands on it. You won’t regret it if you truly love IPA’s.
