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.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting, thanks to Hayduke. It poured a clear copper color with no head. The aroma was tropical pineapple juice with a nice bready note. The taste was noticeable hop bitterness with a slightly sweet and fruity medium body. Nice.

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 :)

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.

12oz can from "Lifesource" in Salem.
Pours a hazy orange/gold small persistent creamy white head.
Not much aroma to speak off but mainlly malty,toffee with some pitted fruitlike in the back.
Taste is very much more fruity..mellow fruitiness balanced by nice caramel type malt..spicy/bitter in the end. Actually nice.
Mouth feel is good and thick but also easily drinkable not much sigh of the high alc.
Overall a nice enough beer.

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.
