3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle
Clean, simple, and full of flavor. This is what an IPA should be like. While the ABV is a bit too high to call it sessionable or a lawnmower beer it does not wear down the palate with an aggressive assault that makes it tiresome after one glass. Thanks to tastybeer for the bottle.
Aroma / Appearance - A rich pillowy head builds to fill the pint glass before slowly collapsing in on itself. When it does a bronze transparent base appears. Marmalade, orange, and creamsicle brighten the air with the addition of citrusy hops. Inviting and light it offers the hop head promises of a great time.
Flavor / Palate - Resiny hops cling to the corners of the palate. Marmalade and grass sparkle in the throat. A moderate rosy finish dries up after providing a refreshing touch. This is a fine example of what an IPA can be when it does not try to go over the top.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear honey color and has some mild lacing. There is some head retention as well. This has a malty aroma and also some caramel notes. Tastes quite bitter, but the malt definitely comes through at the finish. Overall, this is a nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Color is red copper. Aroma is heavy on malt with hints of hops. Taste- spicy hops with a strong malt background. Very balanced. More similar to a pale ale than an IPA, IMO. Mouthfeel is heavy; malt lingers.
*11 oz pour on draft

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dumb name but a great beer. An overhopped bundle of joy. Digging it. Smells piney and hits all spectrum of hop flavors when you drink it. Good stuff.

Pours a medium golden amber color. Aromas of citrus and fruit. Flavor is a big hop presence with subtle tastes of fruit and vegetables, then more hops. This is one damn fine IPA.

12 oz can poured. Purchased with pocket change from the local liquor store on St. Pete Beach. Pours a clear copper color with a rocky foam head. Citrus and sweet malt aroma. Flavor is citrus hop heavy, well balanced, and quite flavorful throughout. Solid, memorable hop profile. Cool beer here. Even cooler can.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear copper color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is hops, caramel and malt. The taste is a very good blend of hops and malt. A really good southern beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alaranjado âmbar de leve turbidez, espuma laranja de boa formação e persistência. Aroma tende para o resinal, lupulado, abacaxi maduro, caramelo. Paladar de médio dulçor e amargor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. No final o malte fica mais aparente, mantém o resinal, média persistênci, mas merecia mais potência no paladar.
