COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops and fruit are such a lovely combo, and this 7% ale showcases both. Hopped like a traditional West Coast India pale ale, this beer saw the addition of 50 lbs of papaya and Amarillo hops in the secondary fermentor. This sweet little number is perfect for early spring. Try it with our fried chicken sandwich.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours a bright orange with a slight haze. Smallish white head. Nose of mango and papaya and Amarillo hops (wasnít hard to guess). Fruity and easy to drink. Something a bit too soft/watery in the palate and not quite as bitter as I wanted, but still damn good.

jcr (2544) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Draft. Clear golden body with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, resin, pine, light tropical fruit, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste leans toward pine/resin/grapefruit rather than tropical fruit. Had to detect the papaya. Nonetheless, itís clean and nicely balanced.

emacgee (4593) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Very soft and clean pretty golden pour with one finger of off white head. Very very nice aroma, tropical fruit and citrus, woody hops, peppery, and spicy notes.! Woody hops and citrus rind with bright tropical fruit and some acidity. Light bitterness.

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Draft to pint at the brewpub. Looks good; a completely transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; piney hops and papaya alongside a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel that comes across as slightly boozy. Still, enjoyable.

Draft pour at Wicked Weed. Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. Some heavier notes of sweet booze, but a very pleasant tropical fruit and light bitter hop character. Flavor is similar, light tropical fruit notes, light pine resin.

jmm635 (991) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured bright orange in color with a thin white head. Lots of fresh hops and fruit juice on the nose. Not sure I could personally identify papaya but I trust them. Great beer!
