COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Summit hops lend a pronounced pineapple and citrus character to this American IPA, late additions of Northern Brewer, Glacier and more Summit round out the hop profile in this delicious nectar.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Tawny maplewood brew, mostly clear. Oatmeal colored head. OK bomber with nose art. Lightly diacetyl, caramel, fruit in the aroma. Not that bitter, malty, light diacetyl that mirrors the aroma, ambiguously fruity. Frothy mouthfeel. Unusual. Missing some oomph. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Tmoney99 (11093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Draft. Poured clear light amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with slick texture with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Draft... Pours mostly clear and golden with orange highlights and a mid-sized, fluffy, white head that never fully vanishes. The nose is bready and biscuity with additional notes of cracker malt, resin and fuzzy stone fruits. Medium-bodied and watery with jazzy carbonation. The flavor trends bitter, but it’s not a total hop bomb, presenting minerals and a modest measure of tannic, rindy bitterness. Crisp, coarse, dry finish with lasting mineral bitterness.

Copper colored. Spruce, grapefruit in the aroma. Resinous with a lot more pine and floral in the taste. Drinkable and nice. Good stuff.

kchampagne (112) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Had this one on tap at E15. Aroma is piney with a bit citrus. Nice fluffy head and retention. Good lacing as well. This is very nicely balanced and easy to drink. Quite enjoyable.

PorterPounder (5711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 32 oz Growler. Sparkling medium copper pour, filmy off-white head that leaves a nice trail of lacing. Aroma has a nice spruce profile with some solid citrus accents. Solid citrus bitter backbone in the flavor with some nice caramel and maple syrup accents, a touch of mango fruity sweetness. Mourhfeel has a nice solid stickiness to it. Pretty solid.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Shaker pint draft at Coffee District Beer and Wine Bar in Delray Beach, Florida. The pour is a hazed golden orange with a well formed 1/4 inch white head. The aroma is faint, the beer was served pretty cold. Toast and resin as it warmed. The taste is soft bitter resin than a softly sweet toasted malt. The finish had a soft floral resin. The palate is medium bodied with light soft natural carbonation with a dry bitter finish. Nice one.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Craft beer week! Pours a deep gold with a thin white head that was gone in 30 seconds. No lacing. Aroma of various hops, grass, weed, and a soft citrus. The taste was refreshing with a nice hop profile and it blended well with the malts. Medium carbonation and a slight bitter finish.

Foxbush (1322) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Draft at the Brewpub The IPA poured with no head and a hazy light golden color. This was the best of the IPAs I had during the weekend in Jacksonville. The aroma of citrus, pine and other fruits. This is fun IPA with average carbonation. The finish had balanced bitterness with fruit flavors.
