650ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Hazy golden orange color with thick creamy off-white head that stands with good retention before slowly collapsing to some bubble on the surface and leaving mild lacing on the glass-side.

Sour and tart dominates throughout both the aroma and flavor. It is sour like a lemon, yoghurt, acidic, and lacto. Also from the addition of passion fruit, orange peels, and guava provide its obvious fruity and tropical evidence. Grain and wheat malt too together with some sour yeast in the background.

Medium body with rather smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation through the palate, the feeling is crisp and puckering with a very dry finish.

Sour and tart like it should be with a good addition of passion fruit, orange peels, and guava.

22oz, typically overpriced American import bottle, but I digress. A tropical fruit-flavoured kettle (?) soured brew. I don't know.

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium golden yellow colour, with three fat-ass fingers of puffy, rocky, and yet fizzy off-white head, which leaves some spare remote northern European island group lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of lactic acid, muddled tropical fruit (ok, maybe the ones listed on the label, but Homey don't play dat right now), grainy and toasted wheat malt, further lemon/lime acrid fruitiness, a peppy yeasty character, and some weird leafy, musky floral, and spicy green hop bitters. The taste is rather tart domestic citrus rind, deconstructed yogurt lacto, still hard to pick apart exotic fruity notes, a somewhat phenolic yeastiness, and some underwhelming gritty and grainy pale malt backbone.

The carbonation is fairly active in its fizzy and frothy emanations, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, once one gets past that mostly agreeable fruity acridity. It finishes trending dry, the just mentioned metrics the order of the lingering day.

Overall, this is actually a pretty heady and engaging sour fruity brew, the purported Hawaiian 'juice' that inspired it doing well to represent. I got married in the Islands not all that long ago, and do not recall said beverage - but, of course, I was more concerned with other tipples, natch, including one made by this brewery for a Whole Foods in Honolulu, which is another story, and yep, another old review. Better y'all look it up than me, I can assure you of that. Fuck.

From a bomber, this one is a milky, hazy brew. The head is soapy and white. Nice aroma...fruit...I get lots of citrus and (I think) pineapple. The label says guava and passion fruit. The taste is tart...not quite sour, but sharp and tangy. Light malt underneath, with huge amounts of fruit. Acidic. Refreshing and interesting.

Bomber poured into an Ipa glass.
Look: between Copper and Gold with thin white head, very hazy.
Smell: tropical fruit, oranges and hint of berries.
Taste: very sour, tropical fruit, berries, and orange, almost like Hawaiian punch.
Feel: full bodied, high carbonation
Overall: sold beer, a little too acidic for my taste, However, I will recommend.
