P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City pint glass.Best by July 2017.

L- Thick soapy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall ,with good retention and sticky lacing.Light amber colored body,with good clarity.Light amount of carbonation and sediment.

S- On the nose I get grapefruit,pine,and tropical citrus hops.There are hints of sweet malt for balance,and earthy hops as well.

T- The palate follows the nose with bitter pine hops up front,some grapefruit and sweet malt in the middle,and citrus and pine hops on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is thin and a little watery,with good oxidation on . tongue.Sticky texture with dry finish.

O- This is a pretty solid IPA.Obviously not the best with all the other IPA's,but still pretty solid for a SA brew.I could see myself drinking this again,and if you like IPA's you should at least give it a shot.

Almost beautiful looking after walking in the heat for hours at Hollywood Studios. Hazy amber with a slight head. Malt and citrus scent and good flavor translation. Mild bitterness decently carbonated. Good. Just getting the whole Rebel reference being in the Star Wars section here at Hollywood Studios. What fun !

Edit: I'm trying this again after a better IPA that I had given a worst score to. Honestly, the flavor is a bit watery and maybe too caramel malt driven.
