355ml can brought to me from Florida. Pours a very clear orange colour, a few small bits floating around. Nice aroma, but not great - slightly astringent, maybe some citrus. I really like the taste. A semi-hop forward APA. Nice malt backbone, grassy and citrus hop profile. Almost a slightly swampy taste, but in a good way. I really enjoyed this brew. Goes down dangerously easily. Would be fantastic for a day on the lake. I really like the can design, too. Well done.

Pours a rich gold with a small hint of amber. Aroma is mild, but with hints of fruit and dandelion. Taste is a small to medium amount of bitter hops for the style over pale malt base. A tad watery. Good beer for summertime, but nothing game changing. Plus 1 overall category point for the cool fish on the can,
