look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Thanks to Another6Pack for this beer! 12 oz bottle poured into my IPA goblet.

Appearance: Crystal clear light golden beer with a frothy white head that settles quickly and leaves enough foam to lace a little.

Smell: Pine mixed with indistinct tropical fruits.

Taste: Distinct guava zap on the first sip. The tartness of the fruit combine very nicely with the bitterness of the significant amount of hops in this beer to make a really potent combination. The malt backbone stays out of the way in the taste of this beer.

Mouthfeel: This is on the lighter side of body with prickly carbonation that accentuates the potency of the tart/bitter combo mentioned above. The finish is long bitterness.

Overall: This is a very good beer, and I am thankful that I am able to try it. I wish I could get it more often.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet. Some carbonation and a thin white head that leaves fairly quickly but some froth remains. A white lace lines the glass.

Smells very much like guava. It is very very present as well as lots of pine and some orange peel.

Oh wow taste is pretty insane. There is a nice prickly hop forward blast followed by lots of guava and citrus. Tastes very woody and carbonation is hidden but felt.

The alcohol is very hidden and overall this is pretty drinkable except for the fact that its a palate killer. Another unique brew from shorts. Not my favorite but a very nice change from your typical IPA. I can see the half acre influence on this one.

The short's version...poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter

A: I would have liked a little more head on this beer and a little better retention. The beer is light amber in color and has a white ½ finger head.

S: There's not too much to the smell here. I get a little bit of kiwi and some other piney hops.

T: The guava in this beer actually comes through in the citrus hop taste better than I had expected it to. The bitterness at the finish of this beer is very nicely balanced and gives it a crisp clean finish.

M: Near perfect for this style. This beer sits on the tongue nicely and has a perfect viscosity. The beer also has a perfectly balanced aftertaste.

D: I thought this was a very easy drinking, good tasting IPA. I'm really glad it comes in 6 packs of 12 ounce bottles.

Reviewed from notes made on 12/16/10.

The Freedom of two years after the freedom pours orange with a tint of pink into a large snifter. The brew is completely see-through and that adds a nifty flair to the overall appearance. A tiny, tiny pure white head burns off immediately and leaves a speiderweb of film atop the body. The lacing is elegant and coats the glass in spindly clumps and lines of small dots. The carbonation bubbles are miniscule and journey at a medium jaunt through the beer.

The smell is what results when guava and hops get it on. It is a seriously wicked scent, ripe with off-the-chart tropical fruit and sweet citrus aromas. The bitterness of the hops hides way behind the sweet fruit smells. There is a bit of crusty bread in the scent profile and the guava calls to mind delicious girly lotion.

Mmmm, hop bitterness is certainly not buried by the sweet fruits in the taste. In fact, bitter grapefruit hops really shine through all of the other flavors, with the guava addition lingering behind the bitter hop taste. Caramel malts give just enough of a boost to hold up the middle of the sip, but an all-out assault of grassy and grapefruit hop bitterness slams my palate at the finish.

Never more than light to medium-bodied, the mouthfeel is all about how the bitter hops attack my palate and suck all moisture from my mouth. Scratch that. There is a decent amount of creaminess in the middle of a pull, but then sucking nothingness at the end. The carbonation is effervescent and complements the bitterness well.

This is a seriously interesting IPA and ranks high up there for me in the hierarchy of Short's PA/IPA line. The guava makes the aroma really unique, while the hops really carry the flavor. I hope they release this yearly, as I really enjoy it. It is so bitter that it would be difficult to session, but one per sitting would be very satisfying.

A - Pours a light copper with a thin white foamy head.

T - Follows the nose. Tropical fruit right upfront. The tropical fruits fade into a nice piney hop finish. Finish also has a somewhat sour citrus aftertaste.

M - Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. A bit watery. Dry crisp finish.

O - I really dig this beer. Lots of nice tropical flavors. Highly drinkable.

4.25/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a golden copper orange that's somewhat cloudy. Not much of a head on this with no retention. Looks nice in color lacks a bit of character.

Smells very different then any typical east or west coast IPA. A peppery spicy hop note comes first. Lots of pine and bready rye.

Taste is so much different and refreshing. This has all the ipa bitterness but blends it well into a spicy, peppery pine note. There's tropical fruity note that blends well and definitely lets you know this was brewed with fruit.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated with some sticky quality. Chewy and round.

Overall, this is a great, refreshingly different ipa. Something I could see myself craving every once in a while and would love to try this on tap.

A- poured a hazy copper color with a nice frothy white head. medium lacing.

S- grapefruit hops dominate. what an ipa should be. not too crazy or over the top but good.

T- the bitterness is what an american ipa should be. the grapefruit hops come out alil but more of some piney notes hit ya unlike the smell. the guava doesn't hit you at first but once you drink this brew day after day the guava tends to be abit much.

M- medium bodied. good carbonation.

D- i hope my beer store has more of this!! once again tho.. great brew but after awhile the guava starts getting to you.

Overall- a solid ipa built for a guava lover.

A_Pours amber/gold in body with a frothy bone white head. Splotches of lacing cling to the glass.

S_Pungent hops,grapefruit and the guava is pretty noticeable.

T_Same as nose. Good combination of bitter and sweet. The guava is fairly easy to pick up and pairs well with pine and citrus flavors of the hops. Overall pretty damn hoppy.

M_Mouthfeel is a little thin,slick and sticky on the lips.

D_Very enjoyable. I've been finishing these fairly quickly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottling date slightly rubbed out like all Short's bottling dates are but seems to be 02/25/14

A- Pours a light copper, medium gold with a small white head. Good degree of clarity.

S- Got that evergreen pine that many Short's IPAs have. A bit floral as well and then there is a medium tropical guava aroma from the added guava juice. Slight honey character.

T- Similar to aroma but the guava comes in a bit more. Floral notes as well, less pine then in the nose. Some slight citric sourness. Finishes with a medium-light malt. A bit watery.

M- Carbonation is correct, this beer is a bit watery in the finish.

O- This beer is not too bad, it's a bit overpriced IMO as it's more on the higher end price range compared to most Short's offerings. I don'think the sprucey pine really works with the fruit nectar but it's dialed down to where it's not offensive. Actually expected this to be sweeter given how sweet some of Short's other beers with added fruit are.

4.15/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A nice transparent copper tone with a pure white big bubbled head. A tiny ring of sediment around the bottom of the bottle. Smell is so sweet and bitter, full of hop and guava aroma. The taste is very much the same hops up front with a growing guava aftertaste leaving the flavor of fruit mentos on the taste buds. A very tangy bitter citrus bite to it that seems to be a little overpowering and taste like lemon peels. I like the way this ale disperses along my palate it seems to mellow itself out. A great ale that could use a little less citrus bite.
Cheers!

Thanx to AlleyKatKing

A:Poured a hazy orange color with a nice white head, moderate lacing is left down the glass

S:Citrus and tropical hops come thru the nose with a slight caramel backbone as well

T:Same as the nose with citrus hops come thru first with some caramel malt in the middle, the only thing different would be the guava taste that came thru on the back. Very interesting

M:Pretty nice body all together with hops and guava hanging around on the palate

D:This ended up being really easy to drink with some interesting taste to go along with it. Guava taste kinda thru me off but was very delightful. Would definitly drink this again

Thanks to kdub87 for this bottle.

Pours clear orange into a pint glass, producing two fingers of just barely off-white head. This fades gently, settling into a thin cap.

One moment I think I smell a classic IPA, citrus hops with a touch of pine, then I am sniffing a glass of tropical fruit juice. Very interesting aroma here, and quite pleasant.

I don't think the flavors come together quite as well as the smell does. Again we have hops and tropical fruit, but I almost feel like the hop bitterness is fighting the sweetness, rather than complementing it. Certainly not bad, but it seems a little messy.

Light to medium body, with nice carbonation, this is a pleasant feeling beer.

Drinkability is fine, just limited a bit by the unusual flavors. One is good, but I'd prefer to follow it with a more traditional IPA.

12oz bottle from 2010 poured into wine glass.
Pours amber mixed with orange, topped with a small white head. Dissipates quickly and not much in the way of lacing (wine glass perhaps?). I immediately pick up the citrus and some hits of guava in the nose. The hops are present but mingled with a touch of honey. The taste follows but the guava is more pronounced and mixes well with the citrusy bitterness from the hops involved. The sweet fruitiness of the guava and the touch of honey keep the bitterness from overwhelming this tasty brew. Medium body and a perfect amount of carbonation in this one. It doesn't finish as dry as some IPAs do. I liked this a lot and have already purchased more. Even better- the girlfriend loves it. Would be great nice and cold on a hot summer day.

A great IPA. Lets hope they bottle this more than once.

April 2012 notes- Really glad they brewed this again. I'm loving the pineapple, pine nose and citrus taste. Shorts puts out a lot of different offerings but every now and then, they hit it out of the park. Changed overall to a 4.0.

Big thanks to beerindex for the Box 'o Short's! No dating noted on the bottle.

A - Pours a slightly hazy vibrant orange with a large fluffy white head. Carbonation is visible and bubbling the whole time.

S - Wow, this smells great! My experience with guava's is zero-to-none, so I never would have guessed that's what it was, but the smell is very distinguishable from your typical IPA. Healthy dose of citrusy hops.

T - This is odd...in a good way. Most IPA's that have the citrusy flavors like grapefruit, orange, lemon, etc., seem to come through either on the front or mid-palate, but the guava flavors here are strongly present all the way through this drink. Even minutes after my last sip, I still taste it. Nice prickly bitterness. The finish is sweet, as noted above with the lingering guava flavors.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. There is an unmistakable oiliness here.

D - I actually really enjoyed this one. I had been interested in trying some of Short's offerings for awhile since they seem to be so outside of the box and this one definitely showcases what they can do.

Looking forward to trying some of their others.

Honey pour, almost no head, great lacing. Smells of grapefruit, guava, citrus, and pomegranite. Tastes of guava, pineapple, grapefruit, and lime. Very well balanced, an incredible IPA, its somewhat similar to hopslam really, though a little fruitier, and slightly less balanced. Would drink again.

Poured from the bottle into my Short's Pint glass.

A: Light amount of white head, pours typical orangish color. Not a whole lot of lacing going on here.

S: Grapefruit and other tropical fruits, with some sweetness coming from the guava. Also get a little bit of the pine/hops coming through.

T: Very nice meld of the typical IPA tropical and citrus flavors with a bit more sweetness due to the guava. It finishes very nice, the hops are on the backbone but its not very strong.

M: Light bodied, good carbonation.

O: This is a fantastic IPA from Short's. They weren't kidding when they said I'd love this one. I'll be heading up to the store for another sixer to stash before they run out. Well done Short's!

Just received fresh from regular trading partner erikkoppin. Thanks Erik, had the Half Acre version beyond excited for the Short's version. Love everything they do let's see how this one is...

A- A very sexy and appealing light amber color with a pale golden hue. Simply spectacular looking, but is missing an expected head. It's a very thin white head that has almost no fluff to it. Even so I can hardly wait to dive in.

S- Wow! God Damn I love the smell of this one it's simply amazing. It gives off a very sweet aroma of guava, kiwi and strawberry. It's making me drool and reminds me of a mild summer day on a beach. The tropical aromas have transported me. As it warms I am getting more and more strawberry, guava, kiwi and fruit skins with a light lemon rind followed by some subtle piney hops and a touch of caramel malt. Unbelievable smelling concoction.

T- An explosion of guava is spectacular and loved the whole way through. It's an undeniable tropical take and Short's has nailed it. The guava is right in your face and has a great sweetness reminiscent of succulent strawberries and kiwi fruits. At the finish I pick up a great bitter hop taste that is piney and detectable. After some warming I get a touch of caramel sweetness that melds with the tropical/citrus and piney hops to create a knock out beer from the masters of fruit.

M- Has a nice stickiness to it and and a great all around coating that isn't syrupy, but smooth. A great tongue sitter that lets you taste all of the nuances of this one. Love the feel and it has a nice faint tingle, but I would have liked a little more it's a little on the light side.

D- Absofuckinglutely! It's astonishingly smooth and light enough to session. The abv is masterfully hidden and gives off no heat. All day and night and twice on Sunday.

A home run in my opinion from a very under rated brewery that catches shit for no reason. They brew some killer beers and continue to push the envelope each time they bottle a new one. Come on agave wheat 12ozs! Thanks again Erik.

Picked up a sixer of this tonight. Drank from big Duvel tulip. The beer poured a dark honey/amber color, with a solid two fingers of frothy eggshell-white foam. Given five minutes, the head died down but left some very bubbly lacing on the side of the glass.

The beer smelled absolutely fantastic. I've had my share of citrusy-hoppy IPA's, but this scent was just phenomenal. It's like being in the islands mon. There were chords of fruity aromas striking in my nose. Detected barely a hint of pineyness.

Taste is very guava-forward. Almost acidic. There is a very pleasant sour (sour like eating a grapefruit without sugar) quality. The hops catch up eventually though and provide some nice bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel is light to medium, with a good amount of carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer. Three thumbs up!

Served in Stone IPA glass- thanks kzoobrew for the chance to try the other version.

Appearance- Slightly cloudy copper, 3 fingers of off-white head. Great lacing.

Aroma- Wow the guava just pops with a lovely sweetness. The hops are there too but that fruit is front and center.

Taste- Fruit juice with a slightly bitter finish. The guava really is the centerpiece here (as it should be), and you can almost feel the rind in your mouth. There is some taste here that is reminding me of something I drank as a kid, can't put my finger on it though.

Mouth- Nice. Good carbonation not too thick or thin.

Drink- I mean seriously you can put this down like fruit juice. I feel like they hit exactly what they wanted to here and I am not complaining. I can't find my notes on the Half Acre version but I am certain that I like this one better.

Pours a light-clear yellowy copper, with much, much carbonation and a thin white ring/ sparse hazy head.

The smell is a nice acidic guava/ mango, entirely tr-hop-ical.

Holy guava me! This flavor comes across HUGE in the nose... how cool to say there exists a GUAVABOMB! Fun, fun beer. Earthy hops deliver a bitter that carries the hops along well. Besides the bitterness, this is a clean-drinking beer- not sweet, and a little dry in the leave. Rarely do I want more sweetness in a beer, but here I think it'd be appropriate. Sticky-icky mouthfeel.

I think someone from Central America would have a better vocabulary to discern the tropical flavors in this beer. It's insanely tropical, and powerfully hopped. Love this one.

This intersting brew from Short's pours a hazy and sandy straw orange with a nice frothy 2 finger that laces nicely.

Oh boy, what a beautiful nose!!! Guava, grapefruit, orange, citrus, a slight toasted oats wheaty undertone. Very nice whiffs here.

Wow, instantly guava, grapefruit, before I even inhale, then a nice blend of citrus, orange, guave, more grapefuit, a nice sour/bitterness from that grapefruit/guava taste, this is really very tasty. I get a nice blend of fresh hops throughout, great freshness, are those cascade hops? Well done Short's. Nice hoppy aftertaste, and good dry almost sour finish, very reminisent of grapefruit ( I guess that is more the Guava). Very very refreshing, alchol is well masked throughout, great creativity, good balance and smooth medium bodied drink.

Short's release a massive number of different beers each year, and it seems that sometimes they may dilute themselves, and just when you start to believe this, they bring out a new beautiful brew like this.

Wonderful, would go nicely with some aged spicy cheese and creamy pasta. I really enjoyed this and will be drinking this frequently throughout the summer.

Cheers!!

A - Kind of a darker amber hue with a decent head.

S - I just got back from Costa Rica. This beer smells like a Costa Rican breakfast. The guava is so prominent, which a back of of earthy hops. This smell is amazing and unique.

T - It isn't much of a let down, but it can't live up to the smell. The guava is still there, but it not as up front as in the nose. It imparts a bit of sweetness, but not a sweet beer by any means. The middle and back are hops, with the bitter and pine expected.

M - Not a full mouthfeel and finishes a tad dry. Would have wanted a bit more fullness.

D - Yes. More. Though with the abv, which is nicely hidden, the bad idea pants could be put on a little early in the evening.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - A pale orange, slim white head, pretty transparent but still has the slightest haze.

Smell - Pine, juicy tropical fruitiness, also some grapefruit and what suspect to be subtle guava.

Taste - Juicy sticky fruity resin and grapefruit right at the beginning that contributes a tart quality that eventually becomes more mellow and flavors of dryer pine, grapefruit zest, and an outstanding fruity flavor of guava that seems to carry well the entire time.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, medium carbonation, refreshing, tart.

Overall - Good beer. First time having this beer and I'm gonna say I'm not surprised by the taste. Defintely looking out for this one again next year.
