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

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a citrus and hops aroma with a yeast backdrop.
Appearance- Has a semi-murky amber color with a large white head.
Taste- The taste is straight forward strong IPA with a citrus finish.
Palate- A medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A pretty good American IPA worth trying

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Nice white head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

Smell - Mild citrus and pine hop. Diacetyl? Might be.

Taste - Still some diacetyl here, but less. Mild citrus hop. Grainy malt smoothed out by the buttery flavor. Eh.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Diacetyl kills this. Maybe it's a bad batch.

Not in great condition when I had it, but it was still pleasant, with a front hoppy tang and pleasant aftertaste
