My first beer from this brewery and it was better than expected. Very hoppy but didn't seem to bite. Maybe a bit thin. Good but with so many other great IPA's it has a lot to live up to.

Tap at Groveland Tap. Bumped pint glass. Copper color with quarter finger head. Aroma is heavily citrus and some floral. Taste has that cloying/drying tendency some beers exhibit. Bitter hop presence which was expected based on the hop levels proclaimed in the name. Kind of a grapefruit rind element. Shows improvement as you drink it but doesn’t get to the impressive stage. It’s a good one to try but lower your expectations slightly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mellow, citrus and floral blend, with some caramel and grain late. It pours an oily brown-orange color with an off-white, soapy head. A thick, fluffy ring is left behind with a hefty surface layer, and lots of lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium bitter with a slightly lighter sweetness. The beer is slick with a creamy smooth carbonation and a medium body. Well blended flavors of caramel and resin come through with a slightly burnt and slight cola touch. The finish is crisp with citrus and a bit of resin. The aftertaste is a bit cloying with notes of bread and citrus peel. Solid IPA, very easy to drink.

Pours a dark amber colour with lots of white lacing and a little head not a bad looking beer. Nice floral rose aroma, real nice. Grapefruit/orange hop flavor, with some malty background flavors. A good beer.

Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium dark copper with a persistent off white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Light sprucey accents, some nuttiness in the aroma. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it, some nuttiness, a touch of caramel sweetness, a hint of vanilla. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Julie feels that it taste like licking an air freshener. Very flower and forgettable she gives a 0.2. I think it is mellow but boring not very hoppy
