12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Brewers intention is a FL West Coast IPA ... breakin it down hard. Some lacing from the slowly dissipating head, hazed amber hue. Juicy hop aroma with citrus rind and guava, hint of malt and yeast as well. Super smooth, a little slick and a little creamy on the palate with some body as well. Ample hop bitterness, citrus rind on the palate. Slight peppery bitterness and caramel in the middle. Finishes with a long linger of hop flavor, a kiss of alcohol, and some toasted bread.

A good IPA, sort of middle of the pack which means it is certainly worth a go with all of the IPAs in the market today.

12 oz can, w/o freshness info that I could find.

Pours near clear typical Amber, moderate off white cap and leaving nice fine and slippery strands of lace

Sniff is citric with oranges coming to mind

Notes of more oranges, ginger and some light lime

All in all a nice crisp and pleasing citric IPA.

Very hazy with a persistent head. Decent enough malt flavor with citrus hop notes. A bit yeasty for me but tolerable. Just a hint of alcohol heat in the finish. Overall a good, solid mid-pack IPA. Not sure I would seek it out but I certainly wouldn't turn one down!

12oz can poured into a snifter. The darker color (a dark yellow/orangish color) and aroma suggests there is a lot more malts than your typical IPA. The hops are floral with hints of citrus with some soapy notes as well. The taste is balanced between bisquity/bready malts with the hops coming in to the finish. Overall, a decent local Florida IPA.
