3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has the same character as a sweet IPA without the full hop feel. Taste has a minor hop character and a nice sweetness. Palate is fairly light, leaving a sour taste. Color brown/orange with a small white head. Drinkable, nice hopped not quite pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very solid if unspectacular pale ale, with light grapefruit tones on a slightly more caramel-heavy malt taste than I’d like. Pretty damn drinkable though, and very fresh tasting, so I’m excited that we have another strong-looking brewery in Florida.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Cigar City, mistakenly tagged as Clean Ocean Brown. The beer is a clear amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped with some citrus notes. Light body with a mildly bitter hops character and flavors of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is lightly hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Momo’s - first day of the 2012 Olympic games. The aroma was muted American golden PA, right out of casting central. A medium orange color, foggy, with a thin, bubbly, frogs’ eggs head. Good bittering, but it came off almost as an amber ale. Limited sweetness and fruitiness. Mouthy. Long, one-note bitter finish.

7/14/12. On tap at the brewery. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head. Light citrus and caramel aroma. Laid back slightly hoppy flavor with a solid malt backing. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper color on draft with just thin white film and little to no lacing. Aroma of hops, piney and citrus, with a slight grainy malt finish. Taste is that, but falls flat in the end. Meh.

Draft at Southern Brewing in Tampa. Pours a clear copper amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma is fairly mild with some piney hop notes. Flavor has a nice balance between the caramel malt sweetness and hop bitterness. A nice and easy drinking pale ale.

On draft at FBG Beerfest, pours a light orange color with aromas of pine, caramel, citrus, and sweet malt. Flavor of crisp citrus, lighter pine than aroma suggest and some caramel notes. Nice refreshing beer overall.
