consumed on tap at Disney Animal Kingdom. No real other craft choices i could find. poured murky orange. Nose was caramel malt and touch of orange and apricot. Taste was decent balance up front but then turned away from any real sweet or citrus flavors into a more deep bitterness. Feel was medium and bitterness lingered. Wont have again but was nice to find something other than a BMC beer here.

Canned 11/15/16, enjoyed in Florida

Pours a light fluffy 1/2 finger head that fades semi slowly sticky lacing, clear straw to orange color

Nose big fresh hops, loads of cascade family hops, floral, grassy, little citrus, faint grapefruit and pine, centennial, mild doughy malt underneath.

Taste big fresh hops again, little pine out front, very spicy, mild citrus and orange peel, lots of rind, chewy like hops, little sweet malty flavor, toasted malts, very bitter makes me want to keep sipping.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb, no booze.

Overall not bad, great aroma, taste was a little too super bitter chewy spicy hop for me, but that's what they were going for.

On draft at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Easy drinker on a warm day.
Hoping to get a bit more citrus out of the taste and aroma but falls a little short.
Nice look and light carbonated feel.
Decent head and lacing in a plastic cup.
Overall slightly above average and appreciate somewhat local choice.
I'm sure I'll grab another one.

First had this one on tap in Ybor at the brewery, now from a tall boy can. Very tasty! Pours deep orange with small sender head, smells more pine than citrus but the taste is more citrus pith/rind. Good mouthfeel with an aftertaste that sticks with you. I'd definitely drink it again!

Tampa has some pretty impressive IPA's with Jai Alai and Old Elephant Foot. OEP looks beautiful and has a very dense head and firm lacing. The nose promises a well balanced Hop/Malt balance with slight citrus notes. Flavor doesn't disappoint. Heavy bitterness and a firm, dank hop hit with just enough malt to provide some balance. An aftertaste that lingers lovingly. This is a very drinkable and affordable IPA that gets the basics right. Well done, Tampa Bay.
