nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Smells awesomely sweet and malty with lots of citrus aroma. Straw-orange color and pours with a very lively, foamy head. Finishes with a lingering bitterness from the heavy hopping. Flavors of orange, lemon, pine, citra hops, and black pepper. If you love sweet hoppy beers, youll love this.

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.

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 (1543) - 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 (66) - 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.

Johnstledger8 (1009) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2016
Can. Loads of tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, citrus, grapefruit, hint of bubblegum. Juicy, oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Gription79 (2874) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Poured from a can, big thanks to my neighbor Taylor. Huge American hop nose, pine, mango, tropical fruits. Bitterness is high on the finish, dry finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the beer. Soft bready malts. One of the greats.

Faathoven (62) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - OCT 25, 2016
Appearance: Deep amber color, slightly hazy, nice head retention. Aroma: Hoppy with tropical fruits like mango and papaya, some peach as well. Taste: Follows the nose, very fruity and juicy, then the bitterness from the hops last for a long time. Palate: Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation. It doesnt live up to the hype imho (maybe I had a bad can) but a good one anyway.

Mesjasz (1233) - Lodz, POLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Can, unfortunately 3 months old. Aroma is mostly caramel and small notes of mango. Taste is bitter and dry, light sweet. Flavor of caramel and resin.
