3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Swamp Head. Clear orange pour with a dense white head. Pine and sweet citrus hop profile with some sweet dried pineapple. A little more on the caramel and malt forward side than I typically prefer, but it’s alright. Light bitterness of grass, pine, and citrus rind. Not great, not terrible.

Tap at Dahlia’s Pour House. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, wood, toast, hay and a touch of flavour. The taste is bitter pine, earth, floral, light toast, light caramel, resin and nectarine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and rather drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Redlight Redlight. The beer is a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Notes of malt and citrusy hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is piney hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose provides toffee, light caramel, medium roast grains and not a whole lot of hops, although there is a unassuming floral note. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is clean and caramely with only moderate bitterness. Crisp, mildly caramely, lightly bitter finish. Flawless in execution, but this is more along the lines of a very good American pale ale or amber ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fucken can @ home, courtesy of DrewFace. Cheers Flo Rida bro! Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a big butterscotch, nutty, burnt malty, strong aroma. Flavor is a touch better with at least a touch of citrus but still full of butter and pancakes. Bitter, bland hops. Yikes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Farrah’s in Gainesville, FL. The pour is a hazed strawberry iced tea amber with a small, dense, rocky, yellow. Nice retention and sheety lace. Aroma is fresh melon, sort of funky citrus and potpourri reminiscent of some mild sour beers or even mild Brett beers. The taste is cinnamon, lemon, bitter grapefruit and orange peel. The body is ultra malt forward with so much body and richness it is nearly impossible to drink. Palate is a little chalky. Overall I just don’t know how you are even supposed to drink this. Abv is verging on DIPA and sugar content is probably out the roof. A pint of this is just way too much.
