355ml bottle. The smell is great, nice guava scent. Flavor is boring, it dirnks well for a near 7%er but not a huge amount of ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy, orangey-gold pour, big foamy white head with exceptional retention and nice lace. Nose is big tropical fruity dankness, basement full of cats, white grape juice, melon, cakey malt. Mouth is loaded with guava -- if you ever been lucky to find em fresh in your local produce market, you’ll totally dig this... anyway, lots of fruit and chewing gum gives way to bready malt, grassy, grapefruit, bitterness underpinning the whole shebang. Solid.

On tap at Champps in Brookfield. Golden copper pour. White head. Big guava nose with other tropical fruits. Light toffee. Taste is of sweet tropical fruit, toffee citrus. Lighter aside of medium bodied. The blend is well done. Solid carbonation. Little alcohol presence. Finishes very well blended between bitter and sweet. This is an excellent tropical ipa! 15

This kind of smells like a sausage. I don’t know how to describe the flavor its like a sausage pine tree... I am confused because that sounds awful but I don’t hate it. I don’t know what’s real anymore..

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a darker golden, slight haze, with a good-sized eggshell head that settles after a while and leaves some ropey, spotty lace. Nose involves really pungent and immediate tropical fruit. I haven’t experienced guava first hand to my recollection, so the aroma must be unmistakably guava. There are also some nice dank, piney, resiny hop notes under there, but it’s mostly just zesty, vibrant, eye-opening fruit. Some sweetness, quite bitter, some slight juicy tartness. Light to medium bodied, pretty active, bright on the palate with juiciness and bitterness, finishing dry and refreshing. A really cool beer that I’m so glad found its way to Indiana.

Samled at gabf. Golden with a big off white head. Truly unique fruit flavors. Tropical but more. A little pine. Good stuff.

Savor 2015. Always make a point to see Short’s if they are there. Nice level of bitterness, nice amount of citrus. Hard to distinguish what type of citrus after a long evening at Savor.

Somewhere between a 2 and 4oz draft pour at SAVOR 2015’s Saturday night session. Poured a clear pale golden c9olor with a small white head. Aroma was a blast of pine notes, some bready malts. Flavor was strong resin, pine, floral and a very decent balance of malts. Wonderful.
