This is a great example of what I like to term a grassy IPA. Golden hue minimal lacing. This particular sampling was a bit warmer than I have had in the past. Had this on draft in the 25oz. Size. Because of the boomba glass couldn’t smell it like i could in a true IPA glass although the taste is very unique. Had this first at Hopcat in Ann Arbor in a flight against some heavy contenders like Stone Delicious and a few others. This beer blew those away. Although I am not a big fan of most of The Short’s beers this one really takes the cake. The super clean fruity light pine flavor is fronted with a super grassy punch that most medium bodied IPA’s just can’t muster. A must try for any true Hophead!

Bottle dated 3/31/15. More fruit than hops. Has more of a grapefruit acid than guava. Tropical fruits. Slightly bitter. I was really thirsty and it hit the spot.

Pours a pale bronze with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of guava and some fruity/floral hops. Flavor is floral hops and guava fruit, which lends a dry bitter taste. The guava adds a nice character to the beer. Very well done.

From bottle into snifter. Cloudy bright orange color with medium off-white head, good lacing. Nose is mango, guava, grapefruit, really nice. Body is medium, medium to low sweetness, balanced finish, smooth carbonation. Lingering oranges in the finish. Balanced, delicious, fruity drinkable, impressive beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a light gold color, slight haze, lasting head. Aromas of citrus, a light sweetness of tropical fruit. Taste is guava up front, some citrus fruit; medium sweet, but slowly a light bitterness takes over. Maybe a bit heavy on the guava for my tastes, but this is a great IPA.
