Poured from a can. Nice golden color. Not a lot of smell, very slight fruit smell. Grapefruit is pretty apparent on the taste. Hoppy with very little malt taste. Smooth and easy to drink.

A thanks to the reigning champion of canned beer, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden /orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits. Taste is surprisingly piney, I didn't get that in the aroma. Malts and tropical fruits are present, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Served 38F from the 12 ounce can into a 14 ounce tulip. "Tomfoolery In Every Can" printed on the the bottom of the can. Unfortunately no canning date though. I guess that makes me the fool for purchasing a product where the brewer replaces the product freshness date with a corny marketing slogan.

Light copper, dark orange with slight translucence for color.

Tangerine, pineapples, mangos and some bready 2 Row malts. Fairly pleasant and well balanced. Not sure how fresh because of the absence of can dating. Seems like this one might be slightly stale, but I only have my nose, not numbers.

Candy oranges, bready malts, not too bitter. Maybe 60-70 IBu's. Stronger hop bite up front from the bittering hops, not much in the aftertaste though. Not too dry, not too sweet. Nice fermentation. No off flavors.

Fairly solid effort from Hijinx, but please, skip the marketing slogans and stamp the canning date on there instead.

Solid amber color- hazy and unfiltered. citrus and hops on the nose, not very strong. Taste is candied orange, citrus, pithy grapefuit, even some light fruit. Mouthfeel is fine and this beer finishes sweet with a bready malt balance. Overall not a bad local pa ipa.

Pours a very hazy light copper color with well over a finger of head. The nose has solid notes of both citrus and hops. The flavor profile is similar - decent malt backbone with a finish that blends hop bitterness and citrus sweetness.
