4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very near perfect IPA. Was visiting Florida and luckily found it at the local Publix in Hallandale. It has been near the top of my list of beers to try. As food as delivered. Aroma was of sweet orange, grapefruit, mango and floral scents. Pours a hazy orange color with a big frothy off-white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing down the glass. A somewhat medium mouthfeel and some resinous feel to it. Kind of oily. Hops are evident throuhout, but never once do they overpower the other flavors. More of a perfect compliment. Flavors really burst on the tongue and in the back of your throat. It’s truly a wonderful beer and one I hope to drink a lot more of in the near future.

Tons of citrus, very tropical, tastes downright juicy. Medium to high bitterness. Lots of depth with some pine as well. A bit resinous, light bodied but lingering. Great IPA.

From a can into a tumbler at the Grand Floridian on the occasion of our 30th anniversary! Clear orange pour with thin white head... Nice tropical fruit and floral notes in the nose and palate. Perfect end to a warm day touring the parks. Very drinkable with dry sweet finish. Excellent IPA...

La canette avait 5 mois lorsque j’ai eu l’honneur de la «psshhhiter». Peut-être que ses houblons n’étaient plus à l’honneur. Peut-être que ses lettres de noblesse avaient raté le rendez-vous. Les notes tropicales qu’on m’avait promises ont été remplacées par un vague background de malt caramel recouvert de houblon herbacés qui n’avaient plus la fougue d’antan. C’était très bon malgré tout. En-deça de mes attentes certes, mais très bon. Je promets de réviser mon «rating» lorsque j’en aurai une fraîche entre les mains.

Can. A nicely complex aroma combining tropical fruits, citrus and pine notes. Flavour is hoppy but not overpowering, well balanced. A top-notch IPA.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
golden to orange colour, 1 inch. dense off-white head; aroma and taste of overripe tropical fruits, pine resin, peach, and some caramel notes; amazing IPA from a metal can - ok, it may have importance, whether a beer is filled into metal can, or a glass, but it is excellent despite the fact that it is a canned beer...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice robust orange pour, mostly clear, effervescent with an inch of fluffy off-white head. Juicy hop nose: tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, juicy grapefruit and orange too, hints of lemon, apricot and fresh peach. Average carbonation, mouthfeel slightly oily, crisp finish. Smooth almost subtle taste. Flavors of orange, grapefruit, and a little bit of pine and rind, kind of resinous. Very smooth, un-bitter IPA with a bouquet of flavors all its own. Definitely a stand out.

I couldn’t get enough of this beer on my last trip to Florida. Poured a 12 oz can into a small mug. Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy white head that laces as you drink it down. Love the head on this beer. Aromas of lemon and orange citrus, floral, finished by fresh hops. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, bitter hop oils, and sweet hibiscus. Light body, medium carbonation, effervescence continously bubbling to the top. This is what an IPA should be, hoppy bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Persistent 2-finger light fawn-coloured head, near clear amber body, carpets and crocheted fields inside the mug.
Aroma of lemon, pine n resin, ashy but sweet malts, floral freshness, very inviting.
Taste is resin, lemon, roasted malts, hazelnut hints, barbecue, citrus peel.
Well bodied, fine decent carbonation, really nice on palate.
Finishes on strong hops, resin, apricot notes, or maybe faint peaches, more resiny malts to the end.
Lingering. At final end somewhat warming. Solid IPA.

355 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Bottled on 08/08/2014 so about 1 month old. Pours typical amber, fading off-white bubbles head. Thick sticky resin nose with touch caramel, lots of bitter pine / hop resin. Taste is sweet sticky caramel leading into oodles of bitter resin, brown sugar, light bitter herbal hop note, bitter tropical fruit,… Thick resin / caramel body. Very solid IPA. This one came out at the top in a tasting involving lots of big name DIPA’s & IPA’s.
