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!

Dark golden beer with a very thin white head. Beer is close to being clear with the exception of some small sediment floating throughout the glass.
The smell is very tropical and juicy. Slight dank.
Taste is very much like the nose. Dank and juicy.
Feeling is wet.
Overall, pretty good pale

Appearance - Pours semi transparent golden color with huge white head that lasts a good while. Lost of lacing on the glass.

Aroma - Biscuit, malt, caramel, grapefruit, orange peel and a little bit of grass and floral hops.

Taste - Strong malt backbone, grapefruit, orange, caramel.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated slightly bitter finish.

Overall - A decent pale ale I think this one is probably a little past it's prime.

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is hazy, murky gold/orange in color, head is off white with light tan hint with fine to small bubbles; head laces the glass sides.

Smell is light toasty malt, muddled hops with light herbs, grass, hint of citrus.

Taste is similar with light toasted malt, muddled hop flavor with more citrus than aroma.

Mouthfeel is lightly sweet, moderate carbonation, dryness comes through a little later.

Overall a pale ale that has a minor malt component and muddled hop composition.

Thanks to JHartley for this one. 12oz can poured into 12oz tulip. Poured a lightly hazy light golden yellow color with almost 2 inches of bubbly white head that dissipated quickly and left light-moderate lacing.

The aroma was a huge blast of fruit in the nose, with no real malt or grain in support. Pretty similar flavor profile, mostly fruit hops, with a slight hint of pine.

The body was just on the light side of medium for the style (as, I suspect, would be appreciated in an area like South Florida), and finished dry and clean. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quick and crisp, and I could see knocking back a few of these. Overall, a very nice brew, one that's worth your time if you get the chance.

Light cloudy color with a big white foamy head. Lacing left on the glass as the head recedes. Nice citrusy aroma. Sparkly mouthfeel; It feels the way a good beer should feel. Very rich, full, smooth, mild flavor. Just a hint of hops. Nice!

I asked if they had an IPA in a restaurant in Key West. They didn't but said they had something kind of like an IPA and gave me Mega Mix. I enjoyed it so much I had another. Finally got around to getting a six. Good beer.
