3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Pours a cloudy orange-golden color with an off-white head. Plenty of sediment floating around. Aroma has some nice, ripe tropical fruit and citrusy notes along with some earthiness. Taste is sweet, and a bit tart, with a bit of hop bitterness. More juicy fruits coming through. lighter bodied and what seems to be a short finish. The fruits and a bit of spice do keep on going just when you think the beer finishes. I am getting some mild alcohol warmth in the chest, but it drinks easy. Depending on the abv, I might be able to drink several of these in one sesson. Good stuff.

10/24/2012. From can. Dark amber color with a white head. Fruity aromas with light malt and hops. Just tropical fruit with medium carbonation. The high alcohol never really shows, so be a bit careful :)

Golden in color with a slight haze. Lightly sweet aroma with alcohol hints and light maltiness. Moderate fruit sweetness, like a tirple and a bit of earthy character in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aluminum can from South Bay Liquor: Aroma is mild with scent of fruit true to how a papaya smoothie smells with not much else other than that for me to pick up on. Appeared as a glowing burnt orange hue with tint of yellow but had a ton of sediment floating around while head was thick at first but then quickly retreated. The flavor has a bit of sweetness in the initial sipping of the beer but then leaves behind a bitter taste that does have a resemblance to papaya, but I have never had breadfruit and not sure how that exactly tastes so I can’t be a judge on authenticity for that type of fruit.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a copper orange color with a finger of stocky tight bubbled foam. On teh nose its got some sweet tropical fruit punch, sourdough bread and a little creamsicle. On the palate its a bit heavier on the caramel malt than I expected and has a big hop bitterness that really draws out and get a touch of phenol in the lingering finish. But the juicy fruit punch add to the flavor complexity and balances the bitterness a bit. Thanks adnielsen !

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Light lacing. Mild aroma; some tropical fruit and bread. Taste is semi-sweet and very slightly bitter. Medium bodied and smooth. Very easy drinking and surprisingly strong. Good, but for a collaboration brew involving two quality brewers, this is surprisingly nondescript.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Asahiya. Thick pear juice, tropical fruits, hops, and rust in the nose. Golden straw color, fine white head, some lace. Malty, and somewhat harsh initial / sort of balances out with hops in mid / light bitter finish emerges from solid trop fruit. Medium body. Another push the limits beer? Tastes like a really well-made malt liquor. I have no idea what toasted papaya seeds should add to the mix.

Can at Antenna America. Orange gold colour, creamy gold head. Aroma is tropical fruit, bit citrus, bready malty. Bit weird. Taste is interestingly fruity, get the bread. Pretty nice but maybe one was enough.
