look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Properly decanted (my can produced way too much foam), this can be a quickly refreshing ale and it under-rated.
Smells of fruit and earthy hops are the best. Tastes are good balance in the attack, but way too bitter in the finish for me

I went on St. Pete's website to see what they are about and they seem to be having fun. But seem to be slightly below middling in terms of their overall strategy: they have an average bar food menu, their beers attempt creativity (a 90% quality among crafters) and they are in an urban setting but could be anywhere. So, I'm probably one and done with them.

12 oz can ..1/12/17

Clouded darker amber w some floaties, lasting khaki froth

Resiny hop nose and more of the same on the palate

Hopped up and moderately bitter, slightly better then middle of the road IPA ... happy to support the growing local Florida beer scene...decent brew in a can

12oz undated can.

Pours hazy copper with a massive, spongy head of white. Loads of lacing and good retention.

Malt and faint hops in the nose. A hint of citrus and wet paper. Medium bodied and a bit slick. Bitterness and stale malt on the palate. Barely a trace of faded hops with overtones of cardboard. Finishes with bitterness and muddled malt.

Another old beer from Florida. I guess local beer is not often fresh beer.

Underwhelming IPA. In a local field with Crank and Jai Alai this one just doesn't compete. Too bitter at the end and just all around a disappointing beer.

St. Pete's Milo's IPA
12 oz. can, no freshness dating
Locale Market, St. Petersburg, FL

Notes: You can never have enough dog beers! Right? Deep copper. Creamy off-white head. Very good head retention and lacing. Very hazy with visible suspended particulate. Sweet caramelish malt and grassy herbal hops. Mild citrus. Flavor affirms medium and dark caramel. Berry-like fruitiness... "Fruity Pebbles"? Bold Bitterness. Alcohol is well cloaked even at 7%. Full throttle IPA. Worth trying.

Pours a clear orange color with white head. Some citrus and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied ale. Finishes with a bit of bittersweetness.
