Florida Beer Friday: Central 28 Beer Company’s Up River

Up River is their entry in the American Pale Ale category. Even though the hop presence is not up front, it does complement the taste along with its citrus and floral flavors. Up River is a good choice for a day of drinking in the Florida afternoons.
