Very nice IPA! Poured from can to glass tumbler. Chill hazy and golden, with a fluffy finger or so of foam. Lots of tropical juiciness to be found here: passion fruit and guava take the lead, but mandarin orange and papaya show up. Minimal bitterness. Clean, bready finish.

Very light, crisp, delicious tropical IPA that’s got to be one of the better ones I’ve tried. Orange-light amber color with some fading fluffy head and just a little spotty lingering lacing. Nice aromas of orange, passionfruit, lemon, tangerine, mango and grapefruit. Tastes similarly, along with some faint guava and papaya at the end. Also has some nice vanilla, malt and fresh bitter zest hoppiness along with faint hints of some floral hoppiness. Nice and crisp, mild thin mouthfeel and great carbonation. I really couldn’t ask for more in a tropical fruity IPA - I would definitely drink multiples of this on a warm summer day or by the grill.

Assuming this is the same as Luau Krunkles?? No Krunkles on the can but same adjuncts. Best by 02/21/19, 22:48:13.

Got a nice golden orange pour with not too much head to speak of. The lace is even and spotty, but not too thick and it slinks away slowly.

Malt is beginning to come through on the nose, but isn’t completely overshadowing the predominance of sweet citrus rind, zesty lemon, and very subtle tropical fruit. Inviting nose, albeit slightly off from a little too much time in the can regardless of ‘Best by’ date.

The flavors seems sharp as ever. Predominantly bitter, with grapefruit and lemon taking over the citrus profile. The guava comes forward on the backend, but most of the tropicalitu comes from the inviting aroma on the nose. Not too much lingering bitterness, just a good variety of forward citrus flavors with light malt on the back end.

Light body with a carbonation that greets you right off the bat but never becomes overwhelming. A very subtle stickiness, but overall this is a very refreshing, crisp IPA from Terrapin.

Real solid IPA--nice long-lasting hoppy aftertaste. Bright and golden pour. Sustained, luscious bitterness without being excessive. Another strong effort from Terrapin.

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.
