Davhgbrew (925) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Quite hoppy aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel. Floral, bitter, and low carbonation. Sweet candy like finish. Very thick palate for an ipa...with too little carbonation for me.

joesf35 (78) - Margate, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Nice light copper color and very clear. Aroma is highly floral with some slight pine. Mouthfeel is bitter, almost biting, and dry. Taste is toasty with lots of floral flavor. A good beer for the style. Better if you enjoy the floral hops.

Draft at brewer. Whereas the light was better than expected, this was worse. Gold with white head. Very little scent, some hops etc. Taste is citrus and bread.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Draft at brewpub. Hazy amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that had a thin layer lasting and good lace. Nice caramel and citrus aroma. The flavor found pine, citrus, and a caramel background. Medium body and medium bitterness. Nice!

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Shaker pint pour at the brewpub in Coral Springs, Florida. Pour is a slight haze, orange copper with a nice 1/2 inch lightly off white head. Falls with some nice lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus softly sweet fruit (peach, tangerine) along with a nice soft earthy grain malt. Taste is really nice, the fresh bitter citrus hops up front, followed close behind by the sweetness of the fruit and finishing with the nice earthy grain maltiness. Palate is grainy, medium to light bodied with a nice bright level of carbonation and a mineral aftertaste. Fresh and tasty beer.

Indutiomarus (114) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - APR 8, 2010
A nice pale ale as far as they go I guess. It is nice and light and almost a little sweet.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Very nice. Liked the hazy cooper pour with tremendous floral pine aromas jumping into the olfactory. Citrus, piney well balanced citrus hops mix well with subtle caramel vanilla hops to quiet the bite into flavorful harmony and sublime drinkability. Body was a tad thin
