Pensacola Bay Brewing
225 E. Zaragoza Street
Pensacola, FL USA

Est. 2009

Postmortem Brew Review
Hazy amber/orange color.
Bready malts front of nose presence with  floral hop notes.
Draped lacing, off-white head that simmers out to a wispy cover.
Tastes nicely hopped and bitter up front, finishing with a balance of malt.
Moderate carbonation. 
Medium bodied. Finishes very clean.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Brought to me from the other timezone of Florida, was this half-growler of Lil' Napoleon. I've heard of this brewery/pub but they are about a ten hour drive from my parts, here at the crypt. Fortunately, I have friends in the right places.

This is a real nice IPA. In the growler bottle, it didn't stand a chance. I reaped it within 24 hours of pour from the tap and must say that it was very enjoyable.

One of three to review, from Pensacola Bay. Can't wait for the other two.
