Hunahpus 2011. Pours the most amazing scarlet red color Iíve ever seen in a beer. Aroma is completely awesome. Passionfruit, Dragonfruit, sour jolly ranchers...leads to a flavor profile that is as good and unique as any beer Iíve ever tried. Amazing balance of mouthpuckering sourness, tropical fruit heaven. So juicy, such wonderful carbonation. Best beer of the day. And thatís saying a lot! A masterpiece.

On tap at CCBís Huna day 2011. The color on this thing just screams dragon-fruit. It was my second beer of the day the first being a breakfast glass of 4 Roses BB Zhukov so this was a wake up call. Aroma was all passion for me and strawberry jolly ranchers??! Taste was serious business dragon fruit/passion fruit and yes strawberry jolly ranchers was a great description. It made me smack my chops three or four times after each sip and it made my mouth water for more. The Tartness was spot on as it didnít over power but caught you right at the tip of the tongue then made way for all the fruity goodness. Great work J-Dub!!

Thanks to Daknole for sharing the bottle. There is only one thing to say. The most amazing combination of fruit and tartness. The color is mind boggling. You need to see it for yourself.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Fruit In The Room. Poured bright fuschia with a light pink head. Nose was very tropical with dragon fruit, passion fruit, peaches and pineapple and some nice tartness. Flavor was tart tropical fruits that was insanely complex and refreshing. Definitely my favorite beer from that day. Had again at Sourfest and it just keeps getting better and better.

What the hell? The color is insane. Neon pink pour. Fruit is insane in the nose and flavor. Lots of passion fruit. Amazing.

Sour. Pink. Hottest sweetest beer I have ever had. The head and the color must have come from Scarlett Johansens crotch.

On draft at Hunahpu day - Hot damn this is probably my favorite beer ever. A hot pink/fuschia shot to your glass. I have never seen anything like this before almost like it was from another planet. Amazing tropical fruit notes dance across your nose with a good whallop of tartness in there as well. The carbonation is perfect the body is medium, taste is of the mostexotic fruits mixed together in a chalice from which you shall drink. Simply stunning, I need more of this, and I need it like now - right now.

Lucky enough to have been able to drink this multiple times now. This and Miami Madness are simply two of the best beers Iíve ever had. The color is amazing and that is just the start. Huge tropical fruits with a nice puckering sourness. So easy to drink. Perfection in a glass.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 This one was on Tap at Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours a blood red, light lacing, a little sour, puckered aroma. Very sour, mouth puckering grapefruit. Nice. Damn Dak gave this a 5... it was good... but that good? Maybe I need to find some more of it.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Pours an amazing ruby purple red with effervescent bubbles. Just carrying this beer around started a buzz. People were saying, "what is that?!?! I want that!" Nose was fresh fruit, funky lactic sourness, sweet fruit and hints of wheat and grain. Flavor was refreshing sour fruits, berries, unripe fruit, sharp acidity. Overall an amazing beer.
