The beer offers juicy passionfruit, lots of mandarin orange, intense floral, a stiff grassy and piney finish, with some medium minus bready malt.

The beer really is uplifted by the passionfruit addition as the tropical fruit addition really uplifts the beer.

T: Tons of passion fruit flavor, so much so that it tastes like a sour with the tail end adding a hint of hops.
M: Very low carbonation, the only thing I would say is a drawback of the beer.
O: Absolutely amazing, it's half ipa half sour passion fruit.
