Canned 05/24/18, always appreciate a clear freshness date.
Slightly hazy golden color with a foamy head. A little bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus peel, earth, and some dankness. The malt is dry giving a bit of cracker and toast flavor. Hops give more citrus than tropical fruit flavors. A little dank as well. Light body, nice carbonation, easy to drink.

Pours a slight hazed dull golden color with a fresh white head. Smell has dank mosaic mixed with tropical citrus. Taste is good mosaic hops first with some citrus and garden hops. low bitterness on the finish with some caramel malts. Its good ..I dont see me ever buying a sixer of this thou.

L - 2-finger fluffy white head atop a translucent yellow body.

S - citrus, pine, dank.

T - follows the nose. Citrusy dankness. Biscuity middle. Mild bitterness, mild sweetness, no booziness.

F - medium-light body with medium carb.

O - it’s no Jai Alai.

Received this beer in a trade with someone from Florida. The taste is similar to an IPA but, is a little more drinkable, think afternoon drinking on a Sunday with buddies. The beer poured with a nice three finger head and the foam was a rich cream color. Like I mentioned above the taste is similar to an IPA and you can taste and smell the tropical flavors. Overall this is a quality beer from a quality brewery.

12oz, canned 02/06/18. Hazy tangerine colored ale, lively carbonation produces a persistent foamy beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and pine. Nice tropical hop flavors of mango, tangerine, orange, and grapefruit with notes of pine and light caramel. Medium body, ample carbonation, finishing a bit tart with a citrus zest bite. I was hoping for a bit more tropical-ness, but it was still pretty good.
