4.2/5 rDev +2.9%
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!

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
Got this as an extra in a trade from my man jopl! Thanks again man!
Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pint glass.
A - Beer poured a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1 finger perfectly white head that seemed to slowly fade down to a thin film on the surface with nice lacing.
S - The beer has a nice strong citrus hops aroma mixed with an almost sour fruit tone.
T/M - Interesting flavor. Starts out right where the nose left off with a strong citrus grapefruit hop aroma and a slight sour tone. Then immediately the over powering tart guava fruit flavors meld with a slight malt undertone. The beer finishes crisp and tart.
D - Drinkable beer.
Overall, this is the one of the most interesting IPA's I've ever had and it was a pleasure to have. It's unsual to find such tart flavors to match the bitterness of an IPA.
Serving type: bottle
