Mouthfeel

The feel has a light granular texture and finishes dryly with a less-than-moderate astringency. The ale has a medium body and less-than-moderate carbonation.

Overall

The appearance of the Pale Ale is fine and the aroma and palate certainly deliver on the “Tropical” as promised by its name. But just a little more hops in the boil would appreciably add some needed balance. Those who like their brews with little bite will appreciate this.

Regrettably, the feel could be more crisp with added carbonation but at least its dry finish lends itself as being thirst quenching.

Overall, the Floridays Tropical Pale Ale is a light and refreshing brew that’s close to being really good. Just as its described by the brewer, it’s best enjoyed on a hot summer day by the pool.
