This was good to be sure. I almost feel like a traitor drinking it, however, as I am a serious Florida Gator fan... so a beer brewed in honor of FSU? I almost was reluctant to buy it. But I did, and I'm glad. A great Imperial IPA. The ABV is considerably noticeable, but at the same time the biggest thing that breaks through with this beer is the hops, both in the taste and aftertaste/mouthfeel. Leaves a serious film on the palate reminding you how much hops you're drinking. I liked it, though it was creamier than I expected. Somewhat silky in the mouthfeel. GO GATORS! (Had to say it). Proof is doing good work though!

Deep coppery red in color with creamy light tan head. Head holds really well. Nice sticky lacing. Nice medium head and thick collar hold throughout this beer. Aroma is rich caramel malt sweetness in the background, with citrusy and resiny hops in the forefront. Nice creamy mouthfeel and good body, with medium carbonation. Taste is well balanced, good toasty malt (kinda bready, kinda caramely), citrusy and resiny prevail in the taste as they did in the aroma. A touch of diacetyl towards the end, buttery. Great beer overall though.
