Hop profile seems a little different compared to sip of sunshine. Papaya and pineapple on the front end followed by resinous hop bitterness. Decent offering.

This beer was not one of the better doubles I've had. It was a bit too boozy for me. It was pretty good but I'd rather have Heady Topper or Sips of Sunshine. Good beer though.

This is stellar. It's everything sip of sunshine wants to be. It's right up there with the elite iipas. It's a melange of overripe passion fruits. Mild bitterness. Treehouse level mouthfeel.
