Big old school hoppy aroma with some new school thrown in. Pine and grapefruit meet mild dankness, melon, and mango.

Palate more favors the tropical tones, in particular melon, along with mango, very mild dankness, and sticky resin. Very little citrus, and the malt is present in a vague smooth sweetness. Moderate bitterness.

Clean and lively, a little too slick, but at 7.5% this is approaching DIPA territory, so overall not bad.

Easily one of the better Florida IPAs.

Delicious out of the can- compares very well with Jai-Alai for great Florida IPAs.
Availability in grocers and mini-marts is good.

Hazy copper color with a frothy creamy head; The hops are evident in the smell, not as strongly hoppy as I had expected from reading the label, but there is something else there too, something sweet; Very flavorful, again not as hoppy or malty as I had expected. There is an unusual distinctive flavor, zesty, a little sweet, but I can't identify it. It may be the 'mystical nectar' referred to on the label. Mouthfeel is smooth and tangy with mild to moderate carbonation. I don't think this will ever be a favorite, but I sure wouldn't turn it down.
