Great tropical citrus smell with notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Very Hop forward. Finishes nice and dry. I can drink these all day long!

This gave me much more than I expected. Too bad it's March. I'd love to crack one of these open in July. Light golden opaque amber color, strong herby citrusy smell, deceptive sessionable flavor. A little strong for that, I suppose. Welcome to Miami indeed!

A 12 oz can poured into a tulip.

Look- An amber and orange mix with 2 foamy fingers of off-white head. Nice lacing

Smell- Nice fruity aroma of peach, orange, and grapefruit mix. It reminds me of some of the NE IPAs.

Taste- A nice mix of mango, peach, and grapefruit with hoppy bite. It is super juicy with a dry hop like finish. The juicy flavor sticks with the beer from the first drink until the last.

Mouthfeel- Nice carbonation and a medium body that balances out fantastically.

Overall- The first time I tried this was on vacation in Florida and it was definitely the beer of the trip. Went back for a football game and grabbed a case to bring back. It drinks more like an IPA. Super drinkable if you want a juice bomb with just enough hop to give it a little kick.

Tried this for the first time at a beer festival and it was my favorite beer there. Went and bought a six pack because I had to have more. The nose is a bomb of citrus, tropical fruitiness. Taste is crisp, slightly abrasive and very similar to the smell. Overwhelmingly tropical, with a slight sweetness on the finish. I've had zombie dust, pseduosue, daisy cutter and other top rated pale ales, and to be completely honest, this might be better than all of them. Balance always seems to be the downfall of pale ales for me. This beer is perfectly balanced and so incredibly enjoyable and easy to drink. I will continue to support MIA brewing and I hope they reach the level of followership they deserve because they're making world class beer!

Pours a slightly hazed amber with 2 fingers of pear; colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Bready, catty, loads of citrus, fades a little once warm

T: Basically follows the nose, some dryness, but plenty of juicyness too. Plenty of orange & a little mango & woody hops as this warms. Finishes juicy & citrussy with just the right amount of dryness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, great balance

Drinks so easy, hops are in balance, this may be a candidate for the best beer I've purchased on vacation down in FL & in my top 10 for the year, easily!

Poured from a can dated NOV/01/16,into a Cigar City pint glass.

Frothy,1 finger,white colored head,with a beautiful cascade.Golden / orange in color,with quite a bit of sediment floating around.Moderate carbonation.Beautiful lacing on the side of the glass.

On the nose I get a ton of citrusy hops,and sweet malts.Mango,orange,and some earthy pine.

On the palate I get bitter earthy,piney hops,sweet malts,and some grapefruit.Also getting some dankness in the nose.

The body is medium thin,with a dry bitter hop finish.A little bit of bubbles on the tongue from the carbonation.

As far as APA's from Florida go,I put this one right up there with Invasion.The hops and the malts are very well blended.I wish i had tried this one sooner.
