Notes / Commercial Description:
This IPA. packed with the juicy goodness of hops, is an homage to our flagship brewery in Lakeland, Florida. The town, most known for its 38 lakes, royal swans and endless citrus groves, was at its founding almost named Rome City. No one really knows why. So here's a beer to celebrate what almost was, for a reason no one knows. Cheers!

this is a great ipa, a mix of what makes the styles on both coasts good in their own ways. it pours a murky but very active pale straw color from the neatly decorated can, hazy but not overly thick, and holding an inch of white head throughout the whole drink, i can see bubbles rising up to feed it through the cloudiness, no visible particulate here either. aroma is awesome, juicy tropical hops right away, mosaic and amarillo maybe, with distinct pineapple and tangerine notes, but also a grassy bitter foundation. its more oily and bitter in the flavor than most cloudy ipa types are, and i really like that the tropical dry hopped goodness is backed up with some alpha acid, it makes a more well rounded, and for me drinkable ipa. this has a cool cerealy base, dry but interesting, no need for crystal malt with the wheat or oats or whatever giving it its body. sliced pineapple, mango, and orange at the end from the hops, essential oils, pine, and so so fresh. easily the best of the couple of beers ive had from brew hub, and just a fantastic ipa, one of the better ones we encountered in florida to be honest. its super refreshing when its ice cold, but it warms up well too. we had no problem blowing through a six pack. nicely done!

A - Pours a cloudy orange with a decent head, but not much lacing.

S - Not much hops in the smell. Mostly orange. Not a very strong smell.

T - Citrusy front with a slight hop finish.

F - Decently light with some carbonation.

O - A fine IPA. Nothing too crazy. The hops are not super strong, but neither is the citrus flavor. Overall a fine, balanced, drinkable IPA. It tastes better, and smoother, as it gets warmer.

Wow, just a really tasty beer.
Poured a cloudy straw color.
Aroma is nice, some hops and definite citrus notes.
Taste is very good, I was surprised when I saw it was only 5.8%.
That just means I’m going to pour another!

Can poured into a matching glass.

Orange straw colored brew, pretty hazed but not like a NE juice bomb, foamy white head, settles slowly. Big bubbled foam. Leaves nice lacing swirling around the glass.

Lots of citrus, sweet, zesty, bitter with some earthy resins.

This comes across really citrusy in the flavor, nice layers of lemon, grapefruit, orange, some spicy lime. All citrus characteristics, pith, zest, juice. Nice brew for warm weather.

Moderate carbonation and medium body. Smooth, very easy drinking.

Great easy drinking beer. Would be perfect for day drinking events (e.g. beach/fishing/events).

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Snorkel glass. Canned on 06/07/17.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow body with plenty of suspended floaties in the body. 1/2 fingers head with plenty of lacing left in the glass.

Aroma: Slightly dank with citrus: grapefruit, tangerines and some peach and pine.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Dank pine and grapefruit with a medium mouthfeel.

Overall: A hazy looking, dank smelling AND tasting beer. A real great tasting beer from Brew Hub. This one needs to be on your must have list an IPA that drinks so easy. Really tasty!

Many thanks to jhartley for this can. Canned on 11/10/17.

A - Pours a medium hazy orange color with frothy white lacing.

S - Light tropical fruit aroma with some light, crackery malt and a little bit of wet paper.

T - Stale orange citrus with a tiny bit of orange acidity/tang, long lingering sharp citrus and pine bitterness. bitterness. Working through the can some citrus resin does start to gradually build.

M - Medium body and extremely dry on the tongue.

O - For the age of the beer, the amount of bitterness that has stayed relevant is pretty impressive.
