UPDATED: FEB 7, 2021 16-ounce can pours slightly hazy orange-gold with a 1/2' foamy beige head and lacing. Aroma: a sweet medley of tropical and citrus fruits. Flavor: mango, jackfruit, grapefruit, guava, passion fruit, cantaloupe, tangerine, honey, caramel, white pepper. Mouthfeel: full-bodied with a slick finish and a prickliness on the tongue from carbonation and hop combination. notalush (6776) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2021 Can - hazy light orange - relatively sweet beer, which works somewhat in light of the hop character heavy on the tropical fruit and white grape character - peppery finish with moderate alcohol warmth - stays fairly sweet throughout.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2020 Can (Dec 2, 2020 canning). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (honeydew melon, guava, grapefruit), with a note of alcohol, light note of onion. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Had I tasted this blind, I would have guessed a DIPA...it's very sweet and viscous/syrupy. Nice fruity nose with only a minor onion taint. Ok for this sort of beer but it's hard to drink much of it. theisti (4999) - Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2019 12 oz goblet at Apres Handcrafted Libations in Breckenridge, Colorado. The pour is a hazed orange with a one inch white head that is lasting. The aroma is tropical fruit hops, honey sweetness, melon and a bit of dank funk. The taste is clean and bright - the topical melon fruit hops up front, followed by a honey sweet maltiness finishing with some of the dankness. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation with a bitter hop finish that shows a hint of alcohol warmth. Nice DIPL, well executed. zoucrew102 (5118) - - DEC 27, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2018 Pint can. Floral hop aroma with notes herbal hops, kiwi and light citrus. Pours cloudy golden-orange colored with a finger of off white head that has excellent retention but little lacing. Starts with floral and herbal hop flavors. Finishes dry with kiwi and some citrus flavors joining the floral hops. Crisp and refreshing, good stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2018 Clear brilliant golden under a thin foamy white head. Gorgeous aroma that’s got a little kiwi fruit and a little semidry fresh herbal hop tone, like farm fresh wet hop, with a kiss of tropic fruit. Dry bright pale malt flavor that’s lightly biscuity and cleanly bitter with nice floral fresh hop resin, a kiss of tropic fruit, and a whisper of kiwi. Slightly resinous bitter finish. drjay44 (4629) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2018
16 oz. can. Canned 09/24/18. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with moderate lacing, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is multiple fruit tones, primarily citrus, floral additions, mild malts with bread, balance to the hops.......taste is mildly malt sweet to start, multiple floral and fruit hop notes, finishing dry with moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, alcohol warmth present, moderate carbonation. This is an excellent example of the proposed style with multiple hop tones and clean throughout. BJCP 9/3/15/5/7 maekchu (5363) - JAPAN - APR 8, 2018
Can. Thanks KL. Nose of tropical fruit, some cat piss, and weeds. Light hazy straw color. Tropical fruit, moving to intense stone fruit, peach, pear,overripe dates, some alcohol, tangy, with a moderately dry finish. Medium body, with some clear hop texture on the tongue. Very rich and fruity. KyotoLefty (14387) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2018
Can from WhichCraft. Big Kiwi hop nose, lots of cat piss, grapefruit, pineapple. Light, crackery malt character. Hazy golden orange color with a low, fine head. Super juicy flavor, great fruity hops with a rather faint lager character (drank after Post Shift). Medium bitterness and a rather dry, crisp finish. Alcohol is hidden rather well. Great one.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2019 Arm twisted to try an IPA/IPL, but I do like Jack's Abby. Thankfully only had to have a small glass. Pours hazy, dark golden with white, medium head. Aroma is heavy hops with light citrus. Taste is grapefruit and mild caramel, moving to heavy hop backbone. Finish retains hop bitterness. I tried an IPA/IPL and survived, so that's a victory.
