3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that lasted for a short while, reducing to a few puddles and large collar which produced good sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a light soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste was lightly sweet with a big caramel presence, which lasted throughout. And then had a decent hoppy citrus peel bitterness which increased slightly towards the end. The flavor hung around for a decent time after the swallow with the mild bitterness fading slowly into the background, which allowed the slight sweetness to blend well with the hops.
Mouthfeel was a little past light in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a nice light, not overly hoppy IPA, with an awesome drinkability...

Tap at tradewinds beef o Brady’s. Color is excellent and lingering thin head. Nose is hop and the taste persists throughout. Some Mild smooth toffee like taste in there but really just medium hop and some limited sweetness to add balance. Hint of citrus too. Decent but not great. ---Rated via my mouth

Bottle from hopscotch - thanks. Slightly hazy orange pour. Aroma of grapefruit and a bit of cardboard. Hops in this are a touch stale. Grapefruit hop taste. Just so-so.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Robbies in Islamorado and elsewhere in the keys. Fairly generic ipa, a bit of pininess. Thin, but OK. The location definitely made this one seem more drinkable than it probably is!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy honey and golden coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light cascade hops, some honey and funky malt, a bit astringent in the nose. Light-bodied; Mild hop flavour with some very subdued malt, a hint of grass and hay and very little else. Aftertaste shows mostly stale malt with some light hops, a hint of sweetness and some herbal and grassy notes at the tail end, but they don’t last long. Overall, a pretty mild IPA with not many good flavours and a few bad ones. Relatively weak in all respects, but not really a beer worth searching out nor one to bring back home! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-March-2014.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear deep golden color with a small tan head. The smell is caramel malt, a hint of grapefruit. The taste is cardboard, caramel, you can tell that grapefruit may have been there at one time... The expiration date is in two months so it shouldn’t be quite this bad. Light+ body with average carbonation. Will not finish this beer...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Golden hue with a mostly lasting head and spotty lace. The beer has some piney notes along with a hint of grapefruit and apple. Biscuity and caramel malts, metallic and flat finish. Seem a bit long in the tooth... got that old IPA thingy going on. Still I doubt it was all the great to being with.

12 oz bottle from Winn Dixie in Orlando. Pours a deep orange with little lacing and no head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Wall of bitterness at first, then mellows and simplifies to a pleasant finish. Quite drinkable and would have again. Well done.
