Pours a hazy amber with a small light tan head. The smell is fruity hops, citrus, mango, caramel. The taste is similar to the noise ending dry and somewhat bitter. Light+ body with nice carbonation.

Klar orange, lille, boblende hvidt skum. Aroma af citrus, fyr, umoden mango. Appelsin i smagen, god, rensende bitterhed. Ret god balance. Tør, svedig eftersmag.

Can courtesy of markwise, thanks buddy. This is cool. I like the tribute to Gasparilla here and then by extension Jose Gaspar and by further extension Ybor’s Gaspar Porter. A few of us used to consider this the best bottled beer made in Florida during weekly tastings around ‘07/’08. For me this beer is a tribute to Gaspar’s Porter as well as the Tampa area Gasparilla atmosphere. To good times and a Porter that has always been mediocre at best. 12oz can pours with a murky deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a dirty white head that leaves behind a little bit of sheet lacing. The aroma offers up citrus, mango, pineapple and peach. Nice. The taste begins with fairly rich and yes ’juicy’ hoppy goodness from malt sweetened grapefruit to tiny chunks of mango and then to pineapple and peach (just like in the nose). It does have a pretty classic Pale Ale malt profile and I even get a Jai Alai sort of feel here. I have had some really good Pales lately and this one is right there with them.

Right out of the can. Great fruit hoppy aromas. Lots of citrus flavor. Tangerine done grapefruit. Just enough malt to balance the hops. Really good beer.

Can, 5%. Distinct hop aroma, sweetish mango with a bit of pine. Hazy golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour starts off quite bitter, but a clean bitterness. Then come some fruity notes, along with a bit of paper. A long and cleansing bitter aftertaste.

Can, 02/11/2014. Pours golden orange, big frothy white head with great retention, sticky lacing left behind as it slowly settles. Aroma is pineapple, grapefruit, spicy pine hops, toasted cereal and mildly sweet hay malts. Taste is mild citrus, leafy hops with fairly bitter pine middle, toasted cereal malts with touch of sweetness coming through the finish. Light body, drinks easy. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Bottle poured into pint glass. Thick foamy head pale amber color. Also apprears to be very tiny black particles floating. Weird. Fruity tropical hoppy nose. Taste is juicy citrus with light peppery tones. Smooth non sticky or dry mouthfeel. A very excellent pale ale. Makes me wish it was 75 out and drinking it in the back yard.
