Bottle bought 3/15/15, drank 3/17. Nose is very piney initially floo lower by a flowery aroma with moderate citrus. Hazy deep orange to red in color with a small white head. Taste is a woody, minty flavor that reminds me of northern brewer hops. Interesting but not the profile of hops I would choose

Poured up on tap at the brewpub where it exhibits a hop hazed gold body that supports a white head and leaves behind cask poured sheet lacing. The aroma offers up hop bitter smelling grapefruit and tangerine and a bit of lime. Nice. The taste bursts with hoppy goodness that’s tangerine, grapefruit and almost lime like citrus hoppiness. The hops lean strongly toward hop bitterness and some slight resiny notes. Solid.

4oz on tap at the brewpub. Labeled simply "American Classic IPA"; 7% ABV. Nice grapefruit hop, bigger citrusy hop, kind of spicy, mildly dank. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Little white head, leaving great thicker sheets of lace. Best looking of the four I’ve had so far. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, lighter sweet. A solid IPA.

Pint pour at the brewery, golden hue with a light head. Nose is tropical citrus, papaya and mango mostly. Medium malt backing with moderate hop content, again tropical in flavor. Another nice Dunedin offering

7/10/13. On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a small off-white head. In general the malt backbone was a bit sweet and caramelly and the hop profile was mostly floral without much kick. Eh.

On draft at the brewery, poured a darker pilsner yellow color, with aromas of citrus, light bitter hops, and some grapefruit. Flavor is the same, nice beer overall, wish I wrote down the abv... Would drink again.

hopscotch (9893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Draft… Clear amber/golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet presents a blend of musky, dank, funky and grapefruity hops. Full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Nice, citrusy, ruby-red grapefruit flavor. Plenty bitter, furnishing tons of juicy grapefruit rind, pith and pulp essence. Lengthy, bitter, rindy, citric finish.
