Bottle from Tavour. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma is very tropical - I get passionfruit, grapefruit and guava. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit, passionfruit and guava. Fruity and reasonably dry. Bitingly, maybe zesty, bitter. Quite nice. marcus (10975) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2018
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a thick white head and a huge mixed fruit aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a lot of grapefruit and a hint of guava. Carbonated finish. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 15, 2017
On tap @ Reuben's. Cloudy golden beer with a white head. Well, not sure how tropical this really is, but it is a decent enough beer. Opens with floral, orange, grapefruit, and mango hop aromas. Light herbal flavor and bitterness to it, along with some citrus rind. Get a bit more mango and pineapple on the flavor, at least. Not too shabby. imdownthepub (15652) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Draught at The Red Squirrel, Edinburgh. Hazy copper to amber with off white head. Malty sweetness up front along with some banana hints, caramel. The hops emerge from the arctic coldness of the beer, some resinous notes along with grapefruit. Good late on. djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2016

Slightly more amber-copper to it than the Crikey, with the similar slight haze and staunch, white head.
Tropical indeed but with plentiful citrus and a much more sparse maltiness behind it. The relative lack of sweet malts actually makes this seem a little less juicy than the crikey, despite its attempt at being moreso. Still, it’s clean, with lots of greenery, spiciness and succulent pineapple and no alcohol.
Somewhat dry, with lots of grapefruit up front turning to spicy, tangy pineapple. Cracker and biscuit malts divulge only a bit of sweetness, while apricot and more grapefruit linger on the finish. Good, supportive/engaging carbonation and a strong dryness with fair bitterness. Liked the Crikey more (it felt more New Englandy to me....) but this is still quite drinkable.
On draft at Zeek’s Pizza in Belltown area of Seattle. Pours a slightly murky copper-orange, with middling head. Aroma was full of citrus and tropical fruit and very dank. Flavor was very fruity, with loads of tropical and citrus. Slightly sweet finish. Really enjoyable IPA. OldMrCrow (2447) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Draft at Zeek’s.
Light brown pour, white head. Nice juicy pale ale. Plenty of tropics, caramel coming on relatively strong. Well crafted enjoyable pizza parlor beer.
