Notes: Tangerine nose from the Summit hops. Grapefruit & earthy bitterness from Columbus hops. Light malt profile to allow the hops to shine through. Tropical & Dank.

Can from ABC in Cape Coral enjoyed at home.
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a decent sized head that slowly recedes. Old school feel with a firm bready caramel malt backbone. Citrus and pine with plenty of bitterness to balance.

A decent AIPA if you like AIPAs (I don't anymore.)
So, I will forgo the beer review and instead just do the micro-review that I do during my first beer from a brewer.

SaltWater picked a good town. Delray is the only town that is built exclusively around tennis (and beaches and boating, of course this being Florida.) So, I've been to the Delray tournament and was impressed by this resort town. As for Saltwater Brewery, I'm less impressed by how they intend to distinguish themselves than Delray does. I went on Saltwater's website and it was kinda cryptic. They do a few good guy things for the community and the ocean life; but I didn't get a sense of what their angle is.

Jan 1, 2020 from a can in Key Largo. Not a bad IPA, just a slight more bitter than I prefer, but not complaining because it clearly states on the can it’s bitter. It’s somewhat heavy in the moments after each swallow, so rather filling. Florida craft brewers have come a long way in a few years so I’ll give Saltwater Brewing credit. I’d buy again

On tap in the Keys. Pours a clear amber with a modest, short-lived head. Initial impression is strong malt presence with citrus and tropical fruits vying for attention. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is malty and slightly bitter. Too much on the malt side of the scale for my tastes.

Review #400!! Wow, what a journey...this one will go down as my favorite local craft beverage here on the gulf coast of Florida. Full body, nice to drink and the abv completely hidden within.

This is a highly underrated southern IPA. A nice wet-hopped nose and flavor from aggressive hopping creates a well-balanced IPA. Medium-bodied and citrus foaming represents the geography...at 7.0 abv, will have you wavering 3-4 in. I think it's delicious and smooth for an aggressive IPA.

12 oz can....3/26/18 on the bottom.

Pours near clear almond Amber.

Crackers malt and a hint of hop resin on the nose.

Decent, middle of the road IPA, on the balanced side with some maple malts and again resiny hops on the finish.....meh...would work ina pinch but nothing overly special going on here.

Picked up while visiting my parents at their hideout in the Keys. Looks mediocre but benign, with little head, golden color, and spotty lace. Nose is noble hops, balancing malts and wet leather. Hey, I call them as I smell them.

Flavor goes wrong quickly. Strong grainy malts start out; there is some decent hopping but the whole shebang gets capsized by a grainy astringency well into the aftertaste. Carbonation is overly aggressive, but still doesn't come close to stemming the "flavor" assault. I wish I could say this was better, but I'd be lying.

Sampled at SAVOR 2017. This had a bold scent and taste with citrus and tropical character. It had a clean finish, but it was a bit harsh. Not bad, but not great.
