Clear (maybe slightly hazy, but I can't be sure with the glass I'm using) light amber color with a light, frothy, persistent head; The aroma is fresh and mildly fruity, with a hint of citrus; The slightly hoppy flavor is rich and mild and a little sweet and a little sharp, with a mild fruity aftertaste; It feels smooth and tangy with medium carbonation. I really didn't know what to expect with a beer that says on the can "Passion Fruit - Orange - Guava IPA. Very pleasant - what a lovely beer.

The label on my can has been changed slightly from the on shown here at BA. LUAU is large and Krunkles is tiny. I had to search for the word Krunkles on the label.

My wife picked this beer for me because she thought the label was "cute." The beer inside was cute too.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 10/3/2018. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, wheat, toasted bread, light caramel/honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, fruits, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, wheat, toasted bread, light caramel/honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness; and slight fruit tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, wheat, toasted bread, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, fruits, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome fruited IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, fruits, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; Very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; with the moderately bitter/drying finish, never overly aggressive. Very vibrant, dank, and juicy hop/fruit complexity; nice solid malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness. They used Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe, Citra, Galaxy, and Amarillo hops; they work perfectly with the tropical fruit. A really enjoyable and well made offering.

On tap in a pint glass.

Bright and clear golden copper color with a 1F off-white colored cap that fades leaving heavy walls of lacing.

Very aromatic. Lots of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, mixed citrus as well, grapefruit, lemon, orange. Caramel malt, slightly dank, floral perfume.

Tropical sweetness, caramel malt, lemon flavor.

Medium body, mild alcohol, juicy, hoppy finish.

As far as "melting pot" beers go, this one's quite good.

Very pale and cloudy. Honestly didn’t get a lot of tropical / citrus notes, it was surprisingly bitter and had more of a grassy / earthy hop quality than something bouncy and tropical
