1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation body semi-transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The strong aroma was citrus. The sharp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong citrus aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of citrus. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again. If I wanted to drink raw citrus, I would have eaten a Pink Guava.....Not! I couldn’t stomach it and poured it down the drain!

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
$2.50 bottle. Typical non BO IPA aroma. Ever so slightly cloudy pale. Redundant IPA flavors all round. Some co2 makes this IPA almost palatable. Bitter lengthy terribly on style IPA flavors. IPA flavor is so thick you can’t taste any guava. Difficult rude nasty bitter finish, just like any other IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CK Diggs, Mi. Pours light, slightly hazy orange with a white creamy head. Aroma is wow, that’s a lot of guava, really sweet, mango, tropical fruits, orange. Flavor is guava heavy, nice medium heavy bitterness, orange rind, there’s a caramel malt backbone, sort of chewiness to it almost. It’s really solid. I actually like this a lot. One of my favorite offerings from Short’s so far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas are heavily hops - grapefruit, pine and tangerine. A little sweet caramel malt.
Visually it’s a cloudy amber with an averaged sized off-white head.
Medium bitterness and some sweetness especially on the finish.
Medium body; oily/creamy texture; average to just slightly lively carbonation; fairly crisp and even slightly dry but with a long, fruity, slightly sweet finish. Overall a very nice mouthfeel.
Overall a very good IPA. There is a bit of sweet malt to balance the hops, but the hops are clearly front and center. I like the diversity/complexity of the hop flavors - grapefruit, tangerine and pine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle pours a lightly hazy orange/copper with a large off-white head. Very tropical aroma, heavy guava with piney hops and light caramel backing. Sweet guava, tropical hops meet piney bitter hop spice perfectly, cites, into light caramel malt and lingering dry bitterness. Yum! Great balanced and flavor flowing across the palate, very drinkable as well!
