(500ml bottle c/o my lovely girlfriend Phyllomedusa) Pours a hazy deep gold with a decent white head without lace. Aroma of pungent passionfruit, orange, lemon zest, light vanilla, some sweet creamy lactose, guava touches, tart overall but with a definite sweet edge. Flavour is more tart than the nose, notes of biting floral passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, creamy lactose, fruit peels, touches of hop resin, rather light vanilla, definitely a bit of sweetness and juice in the middle and a light bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with soft carbonation. Definitely doesn't feel like an IPA so much as a fruit beer, dominated by tart fruit and minimal hops. A bit odd with tart + lactose but it works well. ametras (1844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 500ml bottle. Cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Flavors are passion fruit, orange and vanilla with grassy and light acidic notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture. mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2017
[9873-20171207] 500mL bottle. Fragrant guava passionfruit lemon hops aroma has a white chocolate note. Hazy, pale orange tan body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Passionfruit and lemony lactose white chocolate and vanilla drops in the flavour. Medium body is quite sour. Really weird at first, not sure if it's a good weird because I don't like the lemon lactose base. (8/4/6/3+/13) 3.4 jercraigs (11312) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
2017-12-07. Hazy dark yellow body, nice off-white head fades. Aroma is sweet, vanilla and lactose. Whispers of fruit. Flavour has tart passion fruit up front, sweetish middle has almost chemical quality to it, lactose and vegetation. More tart passion fruit and lemon notes in the finish then sweetness in the aftertaste. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Flavour is better than expected but the core elements of vanilla and lactose mostly detract from pleasant fruit character. Decent. 7/3/7/3/15+ Bottle from Bellwoods, Toronto. mcberko (20482) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2017
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours an opaque peachy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out tart passionfruit, light lactose, vanilla and items hops. Flavour is similar, with lots of tart passionfruit, lactose, a touch of vanilla, and subdued citrus hops. So damn fruity and beautifully tart and sweet. Excellent.

Bottle from Bellwoods. Pours an opaque golden orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma has juicy, tropical notes of citrus, slight pine, resin, and ever so slight vanilla. Taste is balanced with notes of citrus, tropical fruits, slight resin and pine, and vanilla at the end. Kinda like a passionfruit creamsicle. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean but creamy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a creamsicle inspired beer with lots of tropical fruits. Listigovers (1419) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2017
Pours a bit like a darker grapefruit juice, opaque. Tastes a bit tart with the classic milkshark character, good sparkle on the tongue and bright palate, a bit orange juice like with the acidity and texture. Very good stuff, home run. czar (9795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2017
bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks man! pours cloudy/murky pale golden with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. passionfruit truckload with a zesty touch of acidity, integrated vanilla, juicy golden pineapples, clean fruity american yeast action. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - velvety; relatively dry, gently tart tropical finish. excellent hoppy juicy stuff. fiery1 (1844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2017
500ml bottle @ the office. Thanks dabeerbuddha. Pours a cloudy golden straw colour with a small white head. Nose is sweet passionfruit and citrus rind. Flavour is a nice example of a juicy while not overbearing nor excessively sweet passionfruit deliciousness and a perfect creamy lacto influence. I think this may be my favourite of the series.

Cloudy, the head starts well but died really quickly. A lot of tartness, and passionfruit, but also with some yeastiness, and maybe a touch of vanilla. On the palate, vanilla is right up front, with then a little bit of passionfruit. Not much tartness, and then it's a bit yeasty. I sort of wish there was some more bitterness, but overall it's pretty good.
