Thanks to moose3285 for handing off this can during our recent Florida trip, which he made even better with his august presence. 12 oz. can hogged all to myself.

The pour is a fogged orange Florida sunset with plenty of life in it. Nose is fruity in a way that presents a moving target. Every time I think of a tropical fruit it appears as if summoned by an act of Merlin. Orange, citrus are the two that seem to keep coming back. Sweet & fruity.

Hopped on the High Seas - Citra is a tastes like a compulsive Hoarder dumped all his fruit into the mash tun. Bejesus amounts of tropical fruits pummel the palate, set off awkwardly by a moderate bitterness. Big citrus & oranges, sans rind, with a fleetingly sweet pin of caramel. Bitterness swells on the finish. Berry juicy, yet strangely dry....do I smell a new fruit? Chiquita engineers? I suppose it's drinkable. I keep sipping & sipping & sipping trying to ferret out whether I like it or not.

The quorum says yes. Not sure at first, but warmed up nicely. Not the red carpet experience that the dry-hopped version is, but a very good brew.

Reviewed from notes.

A: Hazy dark yellow, with a finger of white fluffy head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Tropical fruit, citrus, melon, dank, and a bit grassy over the light biscuit malt.

T: Tropical, dank, and melon hops - though not terribly bitter - and the cracker malt shows up for a beat, then disappears under more tropical, citrus, and dank hops that linger. Lightly bitter in the hang.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, low alcohol presence.

O: Very, very tasty. An excellent beer, and by far the best Hopped On The High Seas offering of the three as yet released. Highly recommended.
