rumproasts (5313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle. Golden with one finger head. Tart, but not as sour as most jp beers. Funky yeast, but dialed down. Tropical fruit. Dry and lightly bitter with citrus rind in the finish. Decent, but for the price, a disappointment.

Dogbrick (12466) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2016
This beer pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Sticky strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky yeast, fruit, oak and malt. Light to medium body with the distinct Jolly Pumpkin sour and funky yeast character, with notes of oak and doughy malt in the background. The finish is citrus and tropical fruity with a yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Lukaduke (3123) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Pours a medium orange golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is a bit of new tennis balls, tropical fruit, sour oranges, basement must and some rustic grain backbone. Palate follows the nose with lots of stonefruit, murky tropical notes, tons of bitter citrus pith and lingering orange juice.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration.
