Category 3 IPA pours a golden color with a white head from a brown one gallon growler. The aroma is quite hoppy, mostly citrus and pine notes. The flavor is the same, pine resin and grapefruit dominate. Decent, but just about the standard issue IPA with nothing to make it stand out above the crowd.

Canned and w/o freshness info

Pours medium almond Amber, frothy off white head, gauzy froth and splashes of lace.

Resiny hop nose

Better the average IPA with a respectable Resiny and grainy hop bite

Worth a try

Good to see more and more real beer being brewed in Florida

Light copper color with an inch of creamy tan. Moderate lacing. Citrus aroma dominates, but seems subdued. The taste is very citrus upfront with orange peel and grapefruit. The hop flavor lingers in the aftertaste. Not much malt is detectable. There's a gentle hop burn in the otherwise dry and lightly sticky mouth.

Hazy golden color with a long lasting rich foamy head. Strong citrus smell with malt background. Both citrus and some pine hop notes with a pronounced malt finish. Excellent carbonation level with a very smooth mouthfeel. Overall a very good IPA worth giving a try.

Very dark orange brew for an IPA, topped by a nice off-white head. Decent retention.

Aroma is grainy and slightly stale (despite being a freshly tapped keg), with some old-school hops showing through (grapefruit peel and pine).

Flavor follows: there's a nice, pronounced bitterness, but stale cardboard and caramel grains overwhelm any hop flavors, which manifest primarily as a bitter, oily aftertaste.

The brew almost comes across as a more bitter AAL, grainy and overall unpleasant in most regards.
