Growlers thanks to phillycraft. Cloudy light yellow pour with a decent head that fades to a messy ring. Strong lime zest aroma with taco shells, pineapple, light cilantro, and light melon. Interesting taste. Big lime juice and juicy pineapple. Still get the taco shells too but not sure if I would e noticed it if I wasn’t looking for it. Big cilantro in the finish with more juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is full and sorta creamy. This really is like a taco IPA. It shouldn’t work but it does. Extra point in the overall for being so unique.

Growler at Paul’s. Poured a not so great looking milky yellow with a smaller frothy white head. Aroma is pleasant, lime, citrus, cumin, light nacho chip. Medium body with decent carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a good dose of lime throughout and light spice finish. Good stuff.

2-week old Growler from the source - sampled at Paul’s May 2014 tasting. Pours a deep, murky orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is funky citrus, lime, light salinity and tart character and gentle spice/pepper. Mouthfeel is medium plus to creamy with flavors of creamy citrus fruits, tart lime zest, oatmeal, creme, key lime pie and funky, dank hop character. I really, really liked the end result of this one.

Cloudy straw-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Lime, pepper, coriander, and particularly noticeable cilantro an pepper. Certainly carries out the concept well... not sure I would want to drink more than 8oz though. Medium to light bodied, fairly bitter, spicing throughout, moderate dryness in the finish.

Cask pour double dry hopped with Columbus. Hazy golden pour with white lacing head. Citrus, spices and dank hop aromas. Nice bitter, and tropical citrus hop flavors, spices and taco tones take a back seat.

32oz growler shared by JohnGonk on his birthday. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, tropical fruit, lime zest, and corn meal. Taste of sweet citrus, lime pulp and zest, corn meal, and a salty finish. Pretty interesting and damn good!

Growler from the brewery. Hazy gold color. Key Lime Pie/ Lemon rind on the nose. Tastes of corn, lime, peppers, and grassy herbs with cumin. Finishes a tad spicy, tart, and acidic. Really nice beer.

On tap at Tired Hands. Cloudy orange with white frosting. Nose is lime, toffee, grass and faint corn. Creamy with a tingle. Taste is lime pith, cumin, cilantro, pepper and corn. Subtle spicing with a bitter finish. It doesn’t say taco but still a good IPA.
