Pours an unclear dark yellow with fine head.

Smell i fruity and tropical with notes of mango, pineapple and lime.

Taste follows the nose well, adding in a dash of citrus and a mild, balanced bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very enjoyable IPA. Nothing mindblowing, but nice and balanced.

This is really bad. Cans says Best Before April 2018, but it smells and tastes really old. Minimal fruit and just a gross bitterness. This rating is probably pretty generous. Use a canned on date!!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on October 21, 2017. Best before 20 Jan 18. Look is hazy with sediment floating around. Smell and taste is mango, passionfruitmand sour citrus. Feel is bitter and dry.

Expecting a tropical, fruit heavy IPA. No real preconceived notions going in. Fruited IPAs feel like a fad to me but that doesn't mean they can't be good.

Pours very cloudy with noticeable sediment and a bubbly white head. Nothing gross but this must be unfiltered.

The nose is pure passionfruit cut with mango. Not a pervasive scent, but it is most certainly there and more fruity then most.

A certain fruity/pithy sour like passionfruit Italian ice and citric juice is at play here. Mango plays second fiddle behind the fruity sourness. It overall captures tropical notes while still having a bit of pucker to it.

This is actually really sour, or it has a lot of bite at the very least. Not like a wild ale or anything, more like a really dry, citric juice type product. It could honestly pass for a sour IPA, if it was made sour through fruit essence additions.

Well this is a curious one. It's a well made IPA with some more daring-than-usual flavors and a sour-ish bite.

12oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours a hazy golden straw-yellow body, one finger white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is mild passion fruit tartness, caramel, cereal, not much else. Not particularly aromatic for whichever reason. Flavour works nicely though; the mango/tropical fruit sweetness comes across all the way through with a very light passion fruit tartness, mild cereal grain sweetness, touch of caramel. Not particularly bitter, but still mildly bitter with a more non-descript hop resin. An odd beer, but it's tasty. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, slightly more crisp and dry than I'd like, but not necessarily a detractor here. An interesting fruited up IPA, not too bitter but it's not too sweet either. Decent balance.

This is an interesting beer. Not sure I would call it an IPA but then again not sure what else I would call it. The smell is hoppy with tart citrus - mostly orange. The taste is an interesting blend of tart, bitter, and hoppy. Tasty and unique but not amazing. yb

Great refreshing mellow tropical ale, on the verge of being an IPA yet without the assertive hopiness needed to truly earn the title

pale yellow, hazy gold in color. lots of head. not very clear, and it looks like there is some suspended particulates. a lot of grapefruit in the aroma, also (as advertised) i smell a good amount of passion fruit. hoppy aroma, but the hops are a little subdued maybe. smells very enticing. quite bitter, but also very fruity! nice taste for sure! a really strong balance of fruit and hops. quite 'tropical' tasting. mouthfeel is creamy with light to medium body and perfect carbonation. finish is on the slow side for an IPA and the bitter/citrus balance remains in tact for awhile after the swallow. OVerall, a very solid citrus IPA. I'm slightly bothered by the amount of particulate floating about, but I cannot complain about the other qualities at all. I'll probably buy another can of this and see how it looks.
