32oz growler from State Line Liquors. Drinking slowly out of a glass mug. Thick, can’t see through it, pour. Aroma is strong on tropical fruit, of the passion variety I guess. Tropical fruit smoothie aroma. Flavor has a moderate bitterness cutting though it and less tropical. The regular IPA does nothing for me but I guess all this passion fruit really makes a difference. sonnycheeba (6751) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Tap at brewery. Pours slightly hazy gold. Aroma is passion and tropical fruit, light dank, some pale malt, and very faint caramel. Flavor is dry and hoppy with faint fruitiness, soft sweetness, and light piney, dank finish. Medium body. snoworsummer (6504) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Draft at Manor Hill. Pours hazy gold with a creamy off white head. Tastes like passion fruit, hop resin, tropical fruits, and caramel malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like hop resin, passion fruit, and caramel malt. JDBaker11058 (2491) - Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2016

Canned on 03/24/16.
This was poured into a Becher pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt to bronzed semi-brown/orange color-ed body with a thin sustaining white foamy head. Concaves to the center after a good bit. Clingy white foamy lacing.
The smell, damn, for the age, one would think - yeah dead, beeeeep, wrong answer, hell no! For the age, bit sweet passionfruit and berries burst up front over a light sweet grassy edge. Light pears, some floral, and then some citrus.
The taste was pretty much the same - fully bittersweet - combined and all together. Quick dry berry to citrus aftertaste. Definitely a quick finish, (boy does that go out the window quickly or what, wooee).
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a semi-oily yet dry feel making a nice bitter pounding on my tongue.
Overall, damn nice AIPA that I know I would have again. And given the age, I can only imagine what it’s like fresh!

Medium sized off white head with fair retention and a spotty bit of lace. Clear, copper/orange color, gets chunkulative on the final pour. Nose is a bit of iced tea and berries. Medium bodied, lil tangy, soft carbonation, slight astringency. Slight metallic flavors, blueberries, black raspberry notes cover any other friendly hoppyness. Lightly sweet malts, caramel and that annoying hint of iced tea. Fairly dry finish is fruity with a tame bitterness. Oh well. Can from statelineliquors. bigguns22 (809) - Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2016
What a great IPA. A gift from my brother in law Brian thanks bro. 16 oz can pour is amber with a tall off white head. Aroma is full of malts and citrus with tropical notes. A nice balance between dry hops and sweet tropical fruitiness. Could drink this beer all year long love it. Tstamba (786) - Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2016
Taster... Copper gold, some citrus and tropical fruit, not sure I pick up the passion fruit notes... A solid IPA ... dlovell2 (2423) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours cloudy copper color with off white head. Aroma is big citrus with grass and passion fruit. Flavor is big juicy citrus up front followed by light, sweet, passion fruit, with some mineral notes. Finishes with a dry grapefruit hoppiness. Really nice. Nickls (2652) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Tap. Fluffy off white head, lightly hazy dark rust orange. Guava, tropical fruit, sour citrus, and really nice fruity sharp hops in the aroma with some melon sweetness. Flavor is a touch more fruit juicy, and emphasis on the juice with orange, five alive, and definitely passion fruit. Light to medium slick body.
