I really wanted to like this beer after reading other reviews and buying into the hype. Picked up two Freedom of '78s in a mix-and-match 6 pack.

A: Light sunrise orange with just a tad of haze and a small dissipating head.

S: The smell was good. Standard sweet IPA smell with good hints of fruit. So far so good.

T: This is where it went down hill for me. The guava took over in the taste department and left a terrible aftertaste. Yuck!

M: Just a light carbonation on this one. Boarder line watery.

O: I have never had guava, now I know why. The after taste is like a seagull shit in my mouth. Freedom doesn't taste like that. Not sure If I am gonna drink the second one or dump in down the drain.
