Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus, floral. Flavor is guava, light caramel, and bitter hops. Palate is medium bodied, somewhat dry, moderate prickly carbonation, finished bitter. A very good IPA with just the right amount of guava.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet presents a truckload of citrusy hops blended with a tropical fruit and gourd medley - pumpkin and guava standout. Full-bodied with light, airy carbonation. The flavor is of medium-bitter citrusy hops with moderate acidity that is obviously fruit and/or hop-related and not a sign of infection. Solid malts, but they don’t contribute to the nose or flavor - only the body. Moderately astringent, mildly tart, lightly bitter finish that dries out nicely in the end. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

12oz bottle-thanks to jtclockwork for sharing–pours a dissipating off white head with trailing lace and gold/amber color. Aroma is guava, pine needle/rye, tropical fruit-pineapple/lemon zest, some light/medium malt. Taste is grapefruit rind/pine/guava, secondary light/medium malt. Good effervescence. Taste different from nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, shared by robotopera. [Rated on 5/15/2012 - moved when I realized I had accidentally uploaded my rate under the wrong brewer] Minimal white head. Clear amber color. Prominent tropical fruit aroma, as well as a good hop bitterness. It’s like a fruit-IPA, very interesting. Nice, lighter crisp carbonation, and dry texture. Good hoppy sweet aftertaste. Bitter, with a sort of tangy sweetness. Really unique, interesting brew. Robby: "Oaty."

Bottle through trade. Pour has a golden orange color with a ring of off white head on the glass. Aroma has guava, pepper, citrus, and some malt. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has real guava, citrus, mild bitterness, and a lingering finish. Interesting mix of fruit and hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is a light orange. The aroma is huge blood orange with some tart/faint sour. The taste is a little thin and funky. The blood orange comes through a lot which actually saves the beer imo.

Pours a hazy deep orange with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of guava, tropical fruits, herbs, cherries and citrus. Flavor of the same guava and tropical fruits. Kind of herbal. Grapefruit and piney hop notes. Nose is sugary but beer is dry.
