Fairly tart, but not quite as intense as a sour beer, which is appreciated as I find this to be a better balance. Well carbonated and tropical, slightly surprising ABV at 6 percent.

Whoa! This is one hoppy tropical sour! So tropical that you might want to call it a sour IPA, nothing less. It is so fruity, zesty, citrusy, grapefruity, pineapple-like, passionfruity, guava-like, has hints of mango, blood orange and everything Hawaiian, every fruit that you enjoy... It is A sour, I must state this because otherwise you will think of it as an IPA and then you will think it as a bit thin for - but it is a sour, and for such it is perfectly well made. It is the best made tropical sour that I've ever had, feels perfectly juicy, tasty and enjoyable. I loved both the feeling and the taste of this beer! A great sour!

Orange blossom honey in color. Tan soapy head with moderate retention. Splotches of lacing here and there.

Orange and peach in the nose. Smells sweet with a nice soft citrus fruit bitterness. Fairly aromatic. Very fruity.

Sour peach and lemon upfront with some sour orange in the back of the throat. Not too much sweetness or bitterness. Just a whole lot of sour fruit.

The mouthfeel is leaning towards light bodied with clean refreshing carbonation. Plays well with the fruit.

22oz bottle. Poured out a pale golden color with a small, fizzy, white head of foam. It smelled of sweet tropical fruits - unidentifiable but they're all there. Sweet tropical fruits with a mild tart bite. Good balance.

22 oz. Bomber

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice slightly hazy light amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, passionfruit, guava), sour/tart. The taste is malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, passionfruit, guava), nice sour/tart note. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew, a nice thirst quencher.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear golden amber pour with 1.5 fingers of foamy white head. Nice ring of lacing.

S: Tart and funky... tropical fruit and light citrus.

T/F: Tart and fruity up front. Definite tropicals... guava, papaya, and citrus. Not overly sour, and with some fruit sweetness coming through mid swig to balance it out a bit. Mild funk but mostly green fruit/tropicals. A little sticky on the tongue. Light bodied and very drinkable.

O: A really nice tart (not sour) tropical fruit beer. Interesting and very drinkable. Enjoyed this one a lot.

I love sours, but is this really a sour? Yes, it’s tart, but it just doesn’t really go anywhere with it. It is very pretty, bright gold and very clear. The nose is promising too, lightly tangy with good fruity tones, but the taste really looses focus. The different fruits aren’t distinct from one another, just a one note sweet and sour like a old style British cider. Mouthfeel is not bad, light and crisp but too astringent. For me it’s not bad but somewhat disappointing.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Semi Cloudy gold with medium bubbles. White head rising quarter inch off the body. Looks very pretty.

Smell: Smells lightly citrussy like pineapples and lemons.


Taste: Sour off the bat, lemon and oranges. Little Sweet but the bitterness and sour feel is something not for everyone.

Mouth: medium carbonation and sticky. Thin body but full after taste.

Overall: Descent brew, could use some tweaking but worth grabbing if it crosses your eyes. Salud!

L) Pours a hazy honey amber with a surprisingly thick head at first. Little retention and lacing though.

S) Nos is loaded with stone fruit, passion fruit, some tart lactic acid, and almost a white pepper spice. It is inviting, but not super strong.

T) You can definitely detect the passion fruit, guava, and orange juice in this sour. It is super juicy with a fairly clean lactic acidity. Very drinkable.

F) The brew has a medium high carbonation and a nice medium body. Adds to the juiciness of the brew. Taste lingers on the tongue.

O) This is a really solid recommendation to anyone who enjoys fruited sours. Paired with a brie cheese for a lovely experience.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has some hints of amber hues along with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving some specks of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of guava are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and resembles a tropical fruit punch, with lots of flavors of guava and also some notes of passionfruit. There is a light amount of sourness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be quite enjoyable as it was packed with lots of tropical fruit flavors and wasn't really that sour or tart.
