Solid hoppy pale ale. Golden color keeps the body light and quenching for the south Florida heat. Hops are on the citrusy side. Fairly bitter finish but not bracing, with an overall impression of smoothly hoppy, which is not easy to do. This is a great choice for IPA lovers that want session a bunch of beers in the heat and not end up on their backs. Digging it. Being in a can makes it extra choice for the outdoors.

In tap at Hop City into a shaker. Pours a clear apricot with a pillowy 1 finger off white head with good retention, reduces to crown and minimal lacing. Soft round citrus notes, and a little promise of candied spicy orange peel on the nose, along with bready malts. Taste continues the nose, but even softer...no bitterness to note, and the spice and peel has disappeared. Mid to low carb, soft mouthful, nice body. Not bad.
