Incredibly unique beer. The heavy dry hopping of Mosaic and Columbus hops made me first think this was an IPA. Beautiful hazy unfiltered look. Huge tropical nose with the taste equally matching (Orange/pineapple dominated the most for me). 6.3% gives it a nice bang for me. This fully gets a wow factor 5 from me.

American Wheat my ass. This is an IPA...and not just an IPA, but an exceptional IPA. On par with anything Ive had from New England, just phenomenal. Its like straight pulpy hop juice. Never has a beer no been so aptly named. Not your daddy's wheat, hop heads will rejoice, this beer is the best IPA in Florida, and its not even close.

Had this on draft at the brewery, and a few crowlers over the past few days. Everyone I have shared this beer with has agreed, its the best hoppy Florida beer theyve ever had. Yeah, its that damn good.

Poured into a shaker pint glass from a 2 week old crowler. One of the most aromatic beers I've ever had. I inhaled it for 5 minutes befor the first sip. Candied fruit and dank. Thin white head with decent lacing. The taste follows the nose. Although a bit thin it's still an amazing iteration of the juicy New England style. Now I won't have to mule cases of beer on my winter vacation to south Florida! Well done!

Wow. I wasn't buying a couple friend's high praises and boy was I wrong!

Had a crowler at 10 days old and was floored. Had another at 3 days old and was blown away.

The wheat base makes this such a creamy and luscious ipa to drink. The bouquet just explodes hops in your face. It hits your mouth with a smooth, rich, and silky hop explosion. This is NOT a bitter bomb. More like pulp juice.

This beer will single-handidly blow these guys up. Can't wait to try more of their stuff and hopefully more Pulp.

Blind I would have guessed this was Julius or Tree house something.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a murky yellow with brownish orange hints and a white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves some lacing. Not very appealing, but not terrible.

S- The aroma is citrus and wheat, as expected. It's good, but definitely not the huge juicy citrus bomb that was advertised, not even close.

T- The flavor is more of the same. Some pretty good citrus notes with a notable wheat backbone, but definitely nothing to write home about.

M- The mouth feel is in between thin and medium, with mild carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish.

O- I feel like I got scammed by a used car salesman honestly. This beer is solid, don't get me wrong, but I could very easily pick up MUCH better beer off the shelf any day of the week at my local store. If you're considering trading for this DON'T! I traded away some world class HF hops for this, and the regret is very real!

Mother of God. Best thing to come out of Florida in a long time. Orange copper, opaque. White had. Straight Orange juice nose. Taste filled with light wheat, Orange, citrus, just amazing. Top three beers out of Florida that I've had.

Pale gold in color and cloudy with very little residual head.

Nose is malty, sweet, and tropical - mango, tropical, grapefruit, and the slightest bit of pine.

Taste is similar to the nose with malt, subtle sweetness, tropical fruit throughout and a much stronger hop note.

Mouthful is medium to light and almost a touch acidic. Carbonation is average. Finish is dry.

Really enjoyable NE style IPA. Not too heavy, not too light. Could be a stronger fruit presence but very drinkable just the same.

Florida's take on a hazy, NE-style IPA. Don't get the hype on this one. We have better hazy IPA's being made here in CO, guess the FL traders just hyped this one up a bunch and it made it into the top 250 for no reason.

Hazy, murky appearance. Smell and taste is trying to approximate OJ, but it isn't quite there. Julius is like freshly squeezed OJ. This is like the $1.49/gallon OJ you can buy at any grocery store. Mouthfeel is soild and does approximate what Trill and TH do with their IPAs.

Overall, this ain't a top 250 beer. It's solid, but not mind blowing.

I was expecting to like this beer much more than I did. It looks good with a nice hazy orange color but I wasn't getting any great aroma that I expected from a beer with citrus literally in the name. The taste was slightly underwhelming. A nice hop bite but not really juicy and the malt doesn't do much to compliment the hops. Mouthfeel was descent but doesn't go down better than any other similar beer and a little thin towards the end. I know the first batch of this beer was supposed to be amazing. I'll try it again in the future and maybe I'll see what everyone is raving about.

Second Review - I went to the CS Release and picked up cans of Pulp. Drinking this pale ale at home I had a much better beer than the time I had it on tap at the brewery (better batch?). It had more citrus smell and way more citrus taste! A very well crafted beer that can contend with the best New England IPAs.

Crowler pour.

Hazy golden liquid. Smells like grapefruit juice. With warmth there's some mango.

Taste is all about that mango though. Grapefruit plays the back. Got some zesty bite and prickly feel. Finishes dry as hell.
