This ale pours a golden copper color with very little head but a decent white lacing. The nose is packed with guava and tropical fruit notes. There is some citrus and pine and also a note that I can only describe as BO. Its not overpowering but does add a slightly off note to the aroma. The body is medium with a little chew but mostly just smooth sippable ale. The flavor follows the nose perfectly. Lots of guava and tropical/citrus hops upfront. A slight amount of malt to balance the beer. And unfortunately that BO note lingering on the tail end of the beer. I keep trying Shorts but the results are always the same....mediocre. I feel like if they focused on making a handful of great beers they would succeed, but instead they try to make sooo many different offerings that they all just turn out middle of the road.
