DocJitsu (1871) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Pours a moderately murky golden with a perpetual, cream-colored head. Pungent pine, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit bounds from the glass. Vibrant flavors picking up all that was noted in the aromas are delivered in a moderately tart, mildly bitter, and dry fashion. Uneventful on the palate.

ajnepple (5849) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Draft at Tivoli Brewing Tap House. Clear yellow appearance with a lacy white head. Fresh aroma of citrus zest, tropcial fruit, light hop resin, light pine and toasted malt. Similar flavor, fresh, zesty and moderately bitter with a touch of sweetness and a light dry finish. Smooth and easy to drink overall. Well done!

Scopey (13596) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Can at Himmeriget. It pours hazy golden - orange with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet, juicy, tangerine, mandarin, marmalade, um bungo, candied peel and brioche. The taste is crisp, dry, very juicy, zesty orange, pithy tangerine, mango, melon, pine, grassy, weedy, pine, alcohol, touch of resin with a lingering bitter - dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty juicy and boosty. Drinks easier than it sure.

From the crowler to tulip. Pours a honey gold, fast white soapy head dies, but the remnants linger and cling. Nose is tropical fruit. Palate follows right in step. Pineapple mango juicy sweetness. Little tart hop on the back of the tongue. Strong tropical notes front to back. Mouth feel is smooth, creamy and finishes bright. Damn good beer!

16 oz can graciously sent to my by my friend Dan. 12/7/16 printed on the bottom of the can. The pour is a hazed golden orange with a well formed one inch off white head. The head falls with crackling and some nice lace. The aroma is a bright citrus fruit, tangerine and tropical mango pineapple. Additionally, there is a nice caramel cracker malt present under the hops. The taste is the full bodied and fresh fruity hops, big on the tropical mango and tangerine fruit. Following the hops, there is a nice secondary character of the caramel cracker malt base. The palate is medium bodied, with soft natural carbonation, and a bit of a bitter citrus and warming alcohol in finish. Really nice, thanks for sending this my way Dan.

Jashiu (701) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 5, 2016
500ml can from Warsaw Beer Festival - Chmielarnia stand, thank you Mr Korcz!

I have to say that reading all the praises about this one I was hoping for way more fruity character from the hops. As it comes out a lot of caramel. I would love more fruitiness. Though its a very good beer.

ebone1988 (1671) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Aroma is floral, tropical fruit, citrus, a bit of malt stickiness. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, hazy. Taste is tropical fruit, lots of citrus, malt, pine, sweeter than it is bitter, good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, fruity pine aftertaste. Overall, good but not great.

Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Poured from a can within 2 weeks of canning. Somewhat hazy orange with a minimal white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruit, which comes through in the taste. Mango, pineapple, and passionfruit, with just a little bit of bitterness that lingers. The palate is great; slick without being too syrupy. Great beer.
