This could almost be considered a fruit beer. HUGE amounts of citrus in both the aroma and flavor. Guava (of course), but also mango, grapefruit, orange, lemon...you get the idea. Some subtle sweet notes in the background, but mostly a lot of citrus. I liked it...

Bomber. Pours light orange with a white head. Aroma of faint citrus, guava. Very mellow guava touch, but well done. Nice wheat flavor, very interesting IPA.

Bomber my brother purchased at the brewery. Pours a crisp light amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is intense mellow fruit, citrus, lightly piney hops. Taste is very bright and fruity with the guava and medium bitterness. I would drink the shit out of this on a consistent basis if I could.

Bomber. Pours a clear light amber color with medium white head. Aroma is of intense citrus hops, apricot, and guava. I love the aroma on this. It’s light, bright, and clean. Taste is rich citrus and guava with notes of apricot and mild malt background. Delicious.

HonkeyBra (4025) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2010
22 oz bomber. Orange pour with slight red tint, very slight white head. I get a lot of earth in the aroma. Some herbal and pine hops. A bit of guava. Some citrus. Flavor is meaty, tangy guava, citrus hops, a bit of honey and melon. Very fruity and interesting. Some tangyness from the guava and the wheat. A bit of caramel. Some bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied, nice crisp carbonation. Really nice, well balanced, delicious fruit IPA.

Lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, orange, tangerine, apricot, guava and toast. Taste of guava, apricot, citrus, orange, and a fruity, bitter finish.

22oz bomber split with my g/f. Poured into nonic. A - Pours golden/orange, big bubbles, a fingers-worth of head, good lacing and retention. Nice cap on top to round things out. S - Floral hops, guava, slight sweetness (but not much), farm hay, grass. T - The floral hops and guava are really well done. It’s hoppy yet the guava is there to remind you it’s not as straight forward as a regular IPA. A nice Short’s twist on this. M - Light, crisp, refreshing. D - Finished my 1/2 of the bomber easily and could have drank more. I have a couple of bombers left and I’m looking forward to seeing how the Guava does in the next few weeks. Recommend.

[A] Hops. Very pleasant aroma. My girlfriend says guava upfront, but I’m just not getting it. Caramel and pale malts, wheat detectable. [A] Clear amber/golden pour. Not very lively in glass. [F] More great hop flavor. Again with the maltiness. Fruitiness shows toward midway/end. [P] Hop bitter is nice. Very light to mild bodied and easily drinkable. [O] I was expecting the guava to make this lean more toward a fruit beer, but it either blends well with the hops, or is quite an understatement in this brew. 1000 lbs wouldn’t make you think so. Admittedly, never tasted a guava. Not at all disappointed in the end. Glad Cutler & Short’s had a hand in this.

Growler and a couple bottles. This stuff is heaven, especially right out of the tank. Pours a rich glowing golden orange with a medium white fizzy head. Aroma of just a hint of alcohol, bright tangy guava, love that citra hop dry hopping, delicate sweetness with a hint of caramel, huge citrus, light a more citric dreadnaught, so clean, honeydew, fresh grass. Flavor follows but with a bigger than expected citric kick, tangy and tart, nice grassy hops, plenty of supporting tropical fruits, light grass, just light amount of balancing bubblegum bitterness, some grainy biscuitiness towards the finish, love the guava aftertaste that lingers with a wonderful sour tartness. Medium/light bodied, well attenuated leaving just the right amount of sweetness, some corse fizzy carbonation, supremely drinkable. A true treat! Way to go gentlemen!
