COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napoleon never set foot on Floridaís shores, but if he did, weíre sure heíd be looking for a way to conquer the land from coast to coast. Heíd probably have some supporters - after all, the French helped settle Pensacola.
Our Liíl Napoleon was christened in the name of all short bastards - the good, the bad and the infamous. Strong and hoppy, Liíl Napoleon can sneak up on you if you let it. With a smooth caramel and honey finish, youíll want to have a second. And probably a third.
Take time to savor the good ole days, when the French had power and Florida was a territory waiting to be developed. We reckon Napoleon would be proud of the IPA that bears his name. (Aside from his hatred of all things English, naturally).

Draft at House of Brewz. Poured a clear copper color with a medium sized slightly off-white head. Aroma was nice floral and citrus notes. Light sweet malts. Flavor was heavy pine, citrus hops. Pretty clean and easy to drink, not quite sessionable, but close, especially based on how well it tastes.
