Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger head. Very active khaki head with very little retention. Orange-brown color with high clarity. Head recedes down to half a finger and is interesting looking.

S- Passion fruit, bananas and other tropical fruit. A smidgen of alcohol and brown sugar. Interesting, deep smell.

T- Slightly sour. Tropical fruits, passionfruit and guava. Brown sugar. Slight amount of alcohol makes itself known.

M- Wet and... chewy? Finishes sticky. Weird.

O- Mediocre beer. I like the passionfruit, but so strange.

Enjoyed this 12oz can out of a craft beer glass.

A: Pours a red-copper hue with a huge, 4-finger, white head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail and ending in a sold lace.

S: Fruity sweet aroma.

T: Sweet tart fruity flavor with a wine-like quality. Finishes on the dry side of sweet.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Interesting fruity beer – worthy of a try.

12oz. into a Flying Dog Goblet

A: Probably one of the least appetizing colors that I have seen. It looks like muddy water that is a solid brown. I'd rather not liken it to #2 water, but it really is. Very cloudy/hazy. Crazy head upon initial pour that diminished to not even a layer of bubbles. Also, it has a decent amount of sediment at the bottom.

S: Sweet smelling like that of raisins and sour cherries. Also, a bit of grape juice or fruit cocktail as well, with a bit of yeastiness to it.

T: A bad mellow malt that seems like a lager. Tastes like "beer" and I mean that in a bad way as in the cheap stuff and the taste that people that don't like beer taste when they try one.

M: Quite carbonated and goes down like a slightly flat soda.

O: Couldn't finish it. There is nothing in here that I like. It is flat tasting (not as in carbonation) and dull. Beers that I don't like always remind me of why I didn't like beer before. It is that standard ubiquitous taste that I associated with any beer that I had tried (Rolling Rock, Yuengling and Leinenkugel, plus various ABI). It will become a part of my beer bread (along with Undercover and some Swamp Ape).

P: 12oz can into a perfect pint glass.

A: A murky amber that pours with a huge off white head that quickly fades into a light coating on top of the beer. Lacing is non-existent.

S: Sweet grassy malt with some tropical fruits, I'm not really getting much in the way of cherries. No hop aroma at all. The passion fruit really comes through as the beer warms.

T: Sweet up front, bitter in the finish. A strange alcohol like flavor that I can't place. Flavors seem "spikey," like they're all fighting to be in the forefront but none are winning. Tropical fruit in the finish that lingers on your tongue.

M: Highly carbonated with medium body. Probably a little too much carbonation for me. This is one of the least smooth beers I've ever had.

O: Not a great beer at all, probably not even a good one. It lacks direction and isn't all that pleasing to drink as it lacks smoothness. In the end, I find the flavors to all be a bit weird.
