Good mouthfeel. Decent double IPA. Pleasant fruity aroma with a but if a floral note. Worth drinking.

Poured up on tap at the BJís in Chandler, AZ. It has a hazy (hop haze?) glowing copper body with gold edges and supporting a lasting tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up some citrus hops and sweet malts. The citrus has a nice fruity nuance to it along with a green lime peel like earthiness. The taste delivers a pulse of malt sweetened tangelo and orange citrus hops and then it runs into resiny hop bitterness and a somewhat astringent hop note. It smooths out into the resiny but also candy like citrus hop finish. This has plenty of hop bite and resiny hops and flavor. Overall it seems a bit unrefined and raw. Still darn tasty for any hop head.

Draft @ an Orlando location. Pours dark golden color with white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with sweet caramel. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. One of their better beers.

Aurelius (4050) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2013
This was a pretty big beer. Big fluffy head. It was dark and I couldnít tell what color the beer was. Very aromatic AIPA - grapefruit, resin, lots of west coast hops. Rubenesque body. Tangy, fruity, assertively hopped, moderate sweetness. ABV is well masked. A really good choice if youíre a hophead at happy hour. Tallahassee location, with LuckyDog.

PorterPounder (5356) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2013
On tap at their Tallahassee, Fl. location. Dark copper pour, soft eggshell white head, a decent film of lacing is left on the edge of the glass. Aroma of passion fruit and spruce, a touch of spearmint, quite fragrant. Full-bodied bold flavor with some sweet sticky resiny citrusy bittersweet notes, some passion fruit fruitiness, a touch of caramel and some spearmint in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick and full. Solid entry from these folks.

On tap at BJís in Arlington, TX. Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is floral with notes of citrus, caramel, dried leaves and toffee. Taste is bitterÖbitter florals, bitter grapefruit, and caramel with hints of kitchen cleaner.
