Bottle at Jimmack’s invitational gathering. Pours clear amber. Nose of guava, hops, barley and nice malt. Taste of malt, guava, hops, citrus and apricot. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a translucent orange color with a somewhat short lived white head.
S: A really nice nose on this beer. Grapefruit forward hops with the guava kind of sneaking up on you providing a slight tartness. Underneath, some light malts provide a base.
T: Some really great guava flavor hits you immediately. The fruit provides a slightly sour flavor that for whatever reason works great with the grapefruit flavor from the hopping. Not really any room for the malt to come through.
M: The body is on the light end of medium with a lively carbonation.
D: The fruit really takes over this beer, and while I might not always enjoy that, I think it works really well here. The guava is a nice addition and I hope these guys keep making this beer. djd07 (15341) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2017

22oz bottle @Jimmack Invitational thanks dmac–pours a disappearing white head and yellow color. Aroma is perfumy/lemon/mango. Taste is perfumy/lemon/mango hops with some bite, secondary light/medium malt. deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle shared at the September 2010 Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a clear amber with minimal near white head that dissipated completely, quickly. Aroma had a nice combination of strong pine with supporting guava. Flavor clashed more as the pine and guava did not really work together. There was also a bit of a cereal backbone.

The other half of the 78 duality, as such. Pours copper with frothy, off-white head. Nose is resiny hops, black pepper, citrus. Tastes tart, very hoppy, resiny, ith heavy notes of cannabis. The guava in this tastes just like cannabis. And a Ba Ba Booey to y’all. sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2010
bouteille partagée avec Greg.
léger orange, col blanc
arôme, ressort plus de houblon et aspect citron que de goyave que je trouve en retrait pour une bière qui se dit avoir fait usage de ce fruit.
goût, goyave est présente, mais dominée par l’aspect d’amertume que le houblon donne a cette IPA. Qcq notes épicées du houblon viennent agrémenter le palais et font que le profile IPA reste le point fort de cette bière.

Courtesy of HOPSHUNTER. Pours clear copper with white head. The aroma is big crazy guava meat, sweet guava juice and some citrus hops around the edges. The taste has firm hop spiciness and citrus that quickly get pummeled by loads of sweet and earthy/tropical guava goodness. It dries out some into the finish. If you want a robust guava brew then this one is for you.
