4.14/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can,into a Cigar City pint glass.

2 1/2 finger,white,frothy head,that maintains well.Golden/orange in color,with beautiful clarity.Nice cascade,with fast carbonation.

The nose is citrusy with orange and grapefruit,blended with a nice earthy malt backbone.Also getting some sweet breaded malts.

The palate follows the nose with hops,grapefruit,and earthy malts.Not very bitter for an IPA,I get lots of sweet malts as well.

The body is thin,with nice fizzle from the hops,and carbonation rolling down the tongue.Medium dry finish,nice and smooth.

This is a pretty damn good IPA,much more than I expected out of a local brewery.I might have to stop by the brewery and try one of these on tap,before leaving town.

Just lucked into this at a restaurant in Ft. Myers on draft. Took a chance and really liked it. I would buy again for sure. Nice crisp color, taste rolls around in my mouth with a very nice feel that fills up a lot of senses.

That this is the second best beer I've had on my Florida vacation is telling. (Jai Alai is the best, but isn't as good as anything I drink on a regular basis back home.)

Just "nice", but perhaps a bit light. Rather low Abv. Very little bite and the taste does not linger. Probably not something I'd seek out in the future.

L -- Nice light amber color with a good finger-thick head.

S -- Nice hoppiness with a citrus/tropical fruit bend.

T -- Scent notes are strong here as well, along with a good bitterness and maltiness that keep the beer very well balanced.

F -- Nice crispness to it, very easy drinking.

O -- Great local IPA, very refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer's day lounging by the pool or after you've mowed the lawn.

Had at a festival and had a hard time with scents all day, so I'll be back to update if I get a chance to try this again.

Exactly what I want in an IPA...especially one in warm weather...citrus, tropical fruits, enough malts and lingering bitterness that keeps you quenched.
