COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour, barrel-aged version of the beer by the same name. Brewed in collaboration with Maui brewing.

Yes, Michigan and Hawaii are connected. It should be obvious to you now, as you hold this beer, and read this label. John and I designed this beer with two noble fruits from two noble states, Michigan & Hawaii. Cherries and liliko’i. Starting to see the connection? I feel it. So does John. 4391 miles may separate our breweries, but no our thirst for the exquisite. Hipa! -Ron

Working with Ron is something I’ve always want to do since I had my first Jolly Pumpkin beer. Years later, it’s a reality. Being involved on this project was an honor and a privilege. Mahalo to my MBC crew and to you, fans of craft beer! -John

Bottle, 75cl. It’s an almost clear one, amber in color and topped by a small, off-white head. It’s very fruity on the nose, with some peppery notes, funk and flowers. Pink grapefruit hints. It’s medium bodied, lightly tart and pleasantly carbonated, with flavors of pink grapefruit, flowers and a touch of tropical fruits. Really tasteful actually. Lasting finish with grapefruit and flowers, as well as a hint of spices. A really wonderful one, both tasteful and easy drinkable. And quenching. 121109

I wanted to like this more but it tasted to me very watered down. Aroma was nice tropical fruits with passion fruit, cherry, guava, and some wheat. Taste however was like watered down fruit punch. No complexity or tartness that I expect out of JP. A real dissapointment here.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
750 ml bottle. Body is a murky brown with a decently sized sudsy head. Aromas are weak, but fully Jolly Pumpkin. Funk and sour with a little spice. Flavor is a little washed out, but decent. A punch of lemon peel sour with some barnyard funkiness and a little bit of weak fruit that is almost cherry like. This beer is a little thin, but very yummy!

As most Jolly Pumpkins I’ve tasted, extreme brews, nicely done. Aroma of spices, almonds, cherries and tropical fruits.
