Canít remember who shared this one, perhaps it was dosbeerigos, but thanks are in order. Very hoppy, piney and floral. Bitter finish with a tad bit of citrus on the back end. A real surprise/treat that I wasnít expecting.

The big 6-0-0 rating for FL brewed beers! What a nice beer to celebrate this notch with.

Big thanks to markwise for hauling this from FL and sharing it with the amazing hamilton23 bus tour crowd. It pours clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is big and bold with grapefruit, tangelo and earthy tea like notes. Yummy! The taste is bold with rich grapefruit and tangelo citrus notes mixing with earthy tea. This is tasty and easy drinking with loads of flavor. We could have easily just had a keg of this for the bus tour and likely dispensed with it by the midway point.

Shared by the party bus maniacs. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big tropical fruit nose. Pretty good pale ale with big citrus, oranges and pineapple. Smooth. Very flavorful despite the ABV.

On draft at Cask & Larder. Deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of big tropical citrus, pineapple, peaches and hints of pine. Flavor is very juicy tropical fruits, light sweetness and a long bitter piney finish. Great Pale Ale that I could drink all day long.

Really juicy hop flavored citrus bomb with a strong malt backbone, Very tasty and insanely quaffable. Maybe could have used a tiny amount of bittering to balance but really fantastic.

Growler thanks to eric and collin, Iím thinking that they just added hops at the flame out, not bitter really, pretty malty with tons of tropical grapey hop flavors.

Draft... Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is reminiscent of Alpineís Toronado 25th Anniversary Double Nelson IPA - juicy pineapple, other tropical fruits and red and dark berries intermingle with a mild note of pine. Smells so good, I almost donít want to drink it. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and biting carbonation. The flavor clearly tilts toward the bitter side of balance with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit rinds and pith, but provides some tasty cookie malt as well. Pineappley finish with gentle, lingering bitterness that isnít intense enough to offend my sweet tooth.

Wow. Just wow. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is grass, pine, some tropical fruit, lemon, and a wonderful aggressive hoppiness. Flavor is intense: light malt backbone, citrus hops, pine hops, some tropical fruit and mild grass. Really nice, and at 4.2% alcohol, a thing of beauty. Make this again and PLEASE make lots of this. Sessionable, hop-forward beer of awesomeness.
