COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA is packed with a blend of US and Southern Hemisphere hops giving a huge pineapple aroma and balancing sweetness to make it one of the juiciest IPA’s around. The heady aromas fill the sinuses and continue to build with each sip. Hops are strong in the flavor as well giving a full consistent hop flavor across the entire palate but without a raking bitterness. A Florida West Coast IPA to be sure, this ale is far more complex than just hops but as with any IPA the malt and sweetness play a supporting role to bring the carefully selected hop blends to their maximum potential.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draft at Peg’s Cantina during TBBW. Amber with head that lasts forever! Bright lovely leafy earthy fine hop aroma. Is silky smooth, resinous but balanced. Not chewy, and super drinkable. Everything you want in an IPA. Impressive.

swoopjones (5726) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft at pegs. Cloudy golden orange pour. Fruit forward aroma, heavy pineapple and grapefruit, piney hops. Big grapefruity bitterness, weedy resiny hops underneath. Ever slight weedy hop throat burn. Enjoyable IPa

Tap at Peg’s. Pours cloudy amber with a nice off white creamy head leaving lace. Aroma is sweet fruity malty citric a bit caramel piny and grapefruit. Flavor is similar to aroma, well bitter, sweetness mates well with bitterness, good session beer. Finishes longlived bitter and sweet fruity.

pantanap (3353) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2012
On tap at the source...pours a semi-hazy partially cloudy pale cidery orange brown hued consistency and topped with a creamy frothy white head... Sweeter than the former slow dance with a tropical hop fruitiness. A little vanilla and provided sweetness like a fatheads ipa. Preferred the aroma of the slow dance but this one holds up quite nice... Flavors are more of the same with a sweet vanilla tropical fruit hoppiness. Medium bodied not fuller or less so than expected with adequate carbonation. giesmdown pretty easy but a bit of booze surfaces. Not bad.

On draft at Pegs, poured a amber orange color with aromas of hops orange zest, and grapefruit. Taste is much the same not overly hoppy as the aroma would suggest, blended nicely with fruit flavor and bitterness.

Drank from 16 ounce pint glass. Grassy, floral on the front and back of the palate. smooth malt. 6.0 abv and in that category was outstanding. Great hop notes with a New Zealand and Citra blend. It is rare to have a small brewery put out an I.P.A. of this caliber.

On Draft at Peg’s for the 100th Batch Celebration. Pours copper/orange with a big full creamy white head. The head last beautifully and leaves lacing up and down the glass until the last sip, few IPA’s look better than this. Aroma is florals, citrus zest, and hops. Flavor is quite hoppy with some citrus zest and floral notes...The flavor is not what has become the norm of IPA’s, it is not more piney or more citrusy...but rather a very nice balance and a crisp citrus presence that doesnt come off a syrupy as much as alot of similar beer. Medium mouthfeel with a good bitter bite. I like this IPA alot mostly because it is so very different from the average IPA out there...the Brewmaster, Doug, is clearly aware of what has become the same boring, tired old nuances and tendencies of the IPA style. Bravo.

Murky yellow to orange color. Aroma of citrus, apricot with slight caramel malt and a hint of mint. Medium bodied with a nice slick mouthfeel. Herby hops with a bit of citrus and tropical fruit. Solid IPA.
