UPDATED: SEP 25, 2012 Cloudy orange body and nice white head. Lemon desert, cream, oranges. Light bitter, hint of funk. Really awesome. Citric aftertaste. (On tap at the brewery)

Pours cloudy and golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit - guava! That’s what it is. The taste is bitter up front, then comes that grapefruit-guava flavor followed by a returning bitterness. A little malt in the finish, too. Awesomely complex and good, but where’s the rye?

Pours a hazy milky gold with a thin white head. Aroma is dank resinous hops. Taste follows, highly hopped, citric bitterness bitter yet refreshing, soooo good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
On draft at Cigar City. Like the brewer, this one pours murky as hell yellow with a creamy white head. Nose is some spicy rye, big citrus hops, a hit of Nelson hops, and a bit of malt. Flavor hits with rye first, big hop punch and lingering rye and grapefruit on the finish. At 6.5%, this one drinks pretty easy and lovably.

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2012
A big surprise with this one. On tap at CCB. The nose is full of big rye notes and a ton of dank, grassy hops. Flavor is very hop forward with a nice wheaty, rye backbone and some citrusy notes. Very good. Similar to 3F’s gumballhead.

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Easily one of the best pale ales that I have ever had. The aroma slaps you in the face with grapefruit and fresh hops. Flavors aren’t as intense, but more like a bouquet of tropical fruits and light malts in the background. Finishes clean and dry, and very satisfyingly so.

Pint pour at the brewery. Aroma is crisp and clean, full of citrus and hop notes. Little to no malt. Grassy and fresh. Flavor follows, full of citrus notes all over, lemon grass, orange, grapefruit heavy. Still grassy and super refreshing! Medium to lighter palate with white, thin lacing on the glass. Very well done!
