Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma was of guava, citrus, tropical fruits and some pulp. The taste was similar to the aroma with tart guava and mild citrus with some rind bitterness. It finished fruity with mild alcohol heat. Very nice.

22 oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Pours a lightly hazed yellow-gold color with an inch of frothy eggshell white head. There’s definitely a guava/tropical fruit character to this, with apricot, peach, bready malts, straw, and some florals. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bready, fruity, barely funky and tart mouthfeel. Just the faintest bitterness. I wouldn’t have pegged it as a double IPA. Interesting beer. alexsdad06 (10938) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2014

Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and airy with decent fine carbonation. Nice tropical fruit nose. Smooth malts, a little creamy sweetness. Nice mellow piney hops well integrated with the guava led tropical fruits. Smooth finish with a little bitterness kicking in. Well integrated, smooth and typically Pipeworks drinkable.
Nice amber/gold color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of malt, floral hops, some pine, & citrus; Flavor of slight sweet malt, caramel, pine hops, fruit, and citrus; Finish is fairly bitter; Not too bad. That1Guy (2238) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Thanks to Honkeybra for bringing me this bomber. Amber pour with an off white head. Very fruity aroma and flavor. Duh. Might have been a bit oxidized, so Honkeybra will be mad at me for pointing that out. Fruity hop profile pairs nicely with the guava. Not bad.

Bomber batch #505/506. Pours a nice golden orange with a thick white head. Some light lacing left throughout. Has a guava, pineapple, and mango aroma. There’s a sweet guava, pineapple, peach, mango, and pine taste. Very slick and creamy on the palate that was sweet up front with a light bitter finish. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle as winnings from Derek for Fantasy Baseball. Thanks man. Pours clear golden with a fluffy white one finger head. Sweet fruity aroma with lots of guava, some pineapple, pine, sweet malts. Flavor is on the sweeter side with a definite hop presence, guava juice, pineapple, pine, grass. Light bitterness from the hops keep this from being overly sweet. Slick mouthfeel, medium plus bodied, medium carbonation. Pipeworks actually balanced the guava juice with the hop presence nicely here and while sweet, it wasn't in your face syrupy sweet. Though I suspect drinking this anything but fresh would render it not drinkable. Nice sweet refreshing brew as is though.
