FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Growler thanks to the fella’s at HA. Pours a bight golden orange with a nice small fluffy white head. Aroma is bursting with the notes of citrus, orange, soft lemon and juicy fruit notes. Flavor is equally as good, lots of that citrus, some of the grapes in the Nelson coming out in the latter mouthfeel, very bright and fresh fruity character, drying out towards a fairly bitter finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Fine offering.

Superfresh can from BeWarg: Aroma is tropic explosion. Pineapple, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is very fruity and pleasant. Rich tropical sweetness, peaches, pineapple and a touch of starfruit. Slight minerals. Lovely IPA.

_angst_ (4342) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Can courtesy of Biggsbowler. Pours very hazy tiny burnt yellow with a frothy and bubbly white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and grassy with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple, star fruit, lychee, moist grass, pine needles, minerals, lemon zest and hints of tea. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, fruity and slightly grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with rich sweet yellow tropical fruits and grass. About a month old but still holding up well. Nicely fruity. Enjoyable!

Can. Almost completely opaque apricot orange hue with a fluffy, long-lasting ivory cap. Good-looking beer. Aroma is a blast of citrus, fresh-cut grass and fruit juices--orange and grapefruit peel, crunchy pineapple, a base of sugary peach. These reveal themselves appropriately in the flavor, too, and in the same order: Orange juice hits first, followed by swirling grass blades over pineapple and peach before a fairly even finish with bitterness just under medium.

monkeychugg55 (1011) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Darkish gold with a big fluffy white head. The aroma is a little dank with some mango and passion fruit. The flavor has some interesting and bready malt, with some tropical fruit and floral hop flavors. Pretty bitter finish. Nice.

Thechasm442 (637) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Fresh can poured in a tulip. The beer is a hazy golden yellow with an average white head that leaves nice lacing as it recedes. Aroma is mango, passion fruit, some dank pine, and citrus. Flavor is pine and citrus up front. Grapefruit and orange peel, as well as a bit of bread. Sticky overall. Quenching with a dry finish. Nice beer.
