4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Vacation in Tampa. Pours slightly cloudy orange amber, white head, nice lacing. Citrus, orange, lemon, pine, sweet malt. Good balance with a moderately bitter, largely dry finish. Very nice.
Aromas dominated by citrus - mostly orange and a bit of grapefruit. There are some balancing bready aromas, presumably from the malt.
The color is a clear light amber with a small off-white head.
Taste is somewhat dry and while there is a strong hop presence it is not especially bitter.
The body is medium; texture a little oily; carbonation average to just very slightly lively; the finish is fairly long with bready and an attractive citrus fruit flavor.
Overall I like this beer quite a bit. The hops have an attractive citrus (orange and grapefruit) flavor without too much bitterness and the malt is prominent enough to provide some balance. Overall it all works quite well together.

Had with Abby while watching 50 first dates and eating Savas pizza.
Poured from can. Deep amber with a pillowy white head.
Nose is lots of grapefruit hops. Very fruity.
Taste is lots of grapefruit pith but well balanced by some caramel malt. Pretty sweet on the tongue and bitter hops on the finish.
Medium palate and easy-drinking.
Overall, and excellent IPA that is assertively hoppy but well-balanced. Love it. Zaaza (16) - - JAN 15, 2018

Can. Amber cloudy, nice head and good carbonation. Smell the forest, resin, pound leaves and hop pellets. Definitely appealing. Taste of resin very quickly followed by tropical fruits, litchis. Interesting but could last longer though, because it is pretty bitter, and it takes over too much the palate. Nonetheless a great one.

12 fl oz. can. randy1969 (112) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Pours little hazy orange with white head.
Aroma pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel.
Taste caramel sweets, nice piney bitter.
The aroma is grassy hops. Very earthy. White head and an orange colored body, a little hazy. Tastes citrusy and sweet with some hop bitterness. Lively carbonation with creamy texture. Heard it's brewed in North Carolina, that's not what I wanna sample when I'm in Florida!! TedE (1537) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2017
12 Fl oz can into glass. Hazy golden amber beer with big frothy head. Medium carbonation. Nose is slightly alcoholic with hints of malt and stonefruit. Good body, zingy in the mouth. Finish is earthy, fruity with late touches of sweet alcohol. Nice IPA, easy drinking too! bbaird (37) - - DEC 17, 2017
Beautiful lacing and very clear color. Nice flavor with hop hit on the finish.
