On draft at Licksters in Tampa Florida.

Yellow orange, slight haze. Artificial guava and passion fruit on the nose and palate. Aspirin bitter finish. Too unrefined and almost gimmicky. Couldn’t finish the glass. Never again.

Exactly what I am looking for in a tropical IPA. I go back and forth between this and the POG basement IPA, as the two best that I have ever encountered. They are both extremely similar, I guess I will give the nod to terrapin as it is slightly cheaper but every bit as good.
The smell is of tropical fruit, and citrus hops.
Pours Golden Amber with a slight light half inch head.
Taste of the advertised passion, orange, and guava, with a slight hip bite at the end.
Leaves your mouth with a fresh fruity feel. It took 12 years but I finally found IMO a perfect beer.

The clear deep golden beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/2” off white head that slowly recedes a thin irregular island of foam and in doing so leaves a ring of patchy, leggy foam and lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates a couple of arches of foam and multiple patches smaller patches and legs of lacing.

The aromas include some orange and lots of tropical fruit with some orange zest along with some malt and just a bit of spiciness in the background.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with lots of tropical fruit, some orange and orange zest backed up by some sweetness from the bready malt backbone and the touch of spicy bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly smooth with the finely bubbled moderate carbonation. The medium long finish begins as the tropical fruit and orange flavors start to fade, allowing the spicy bitterness to show just a bit more before it too recedes into the background of the fruit tinged dry finish.

Overall a nice take on a fruited IPA, easily drinkable and fairly enjoyable so I’d be happy to have another. The fruit flavors work well together and none dominates the mix, an interesting combination of aromas and flavors.

Copper colored with a fingernail of eggshell white and moderate lacing. The aroma is passion fruit and orange. I'm tasting plenty of citrus and passion fruit. The mouth is lightly resinous and dry.

Good Hawaiian beer, a bastard cousin of the Scofflaw POG IPA
