COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This India Pale Ale packs a larger punch than the Palmbender, but its well-balanced characteristics make it an easy drinking IPA. Brewed with 2-row American pale ale malts and dry hopped with whole cone cascades, this cloud rolls in with a 6.9% ABV and intense citrusy hop aroma that will satisfy the hophead in us all. The addition of local honey at the end of the brewing process lends a subtle sweetness for a clean finish.

Fritz123 (1182) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Draft at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, Fl. Poured into a tupil. Nice copper with slight haze and one finger white head that lasted. Some solid lacing as well. Aroma is citrus and some mild pine and pine resin. Clean smelling brew. The taste is citrus with orange mainly, slightly sweet malt characteristics, hint of pine and pine resin. Again, clean tasting and balanced. Soft finish, not much bitterness. Good IPA.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Can... RBWG 2015... Pours hazy and orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose features cookie, caramel and biscuit malts providing structure for a fine set of citrusy hops tangerine and grapefruit peels. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor provides loads of rindy and tannic hop bitterness. Lengthy, metallically-bitter finish.

dinkle50 (1043) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Hazy orange to gold color. Single finger head with a little lace. Smells pretty earthy with hints of honey. Full mouth. Taste is full of grain and a little honey. Some grassy notes as well. Lingering bitterness that comes across as slightly juicy. Not sure the flavors work all that well together. Slight alcohol bite.

BelgianBeerGal (3279) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2015
ABC PCB growler. Puss a clear copper color with a foamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is light hops and caramel malt. Flavor is lightly bitter with some syrupy malt. I swear it finishes with a hint of lager yeast. Meh.

AWISLguy (1517) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Can from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Orangey pour. Some lacing. Aroma has floral hops, some pine, a slightly off-putting citrusy smell and sweet malts. Taste is of orange juice, some spice, biscuity malts, lemons and grapefruit. Lightly sweet with solid follow-through bitterness. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Interesting, decent brew. Something a touch off with it. 13.4

TXBadger (1658) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Pours a darker golden color with white head. Citrus, dank citrus, a little pine, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Pretty solid.

DocJitsu (1100) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a clear orange golden color with a quickly dissipating all white head. The aroma is characterized by hey honey sweetness and a subdued orange citrus. Soft mouth feel with progressive astringency. A honey sweetness comes through first and foremost. Notable citrus flavor also gets carried through. There is a bitterness I have to finish that is a little misplaced.
