Thanks to Bpfahl for this 16 oz. can, with art that’s an unsubtle head-butt to one of the great teen movies of all time. A fine-looking extra.

I have to admit I’m looking forward to a September trip to San Diego, to the stronghold of old-school, clear-as-gin IPAs…they still exist, right? This is a murky yellow, middling on the scale of opaque fruitiness. The nose is sweet tropical fruit, but nothing in particular stands out. Nice.

Key Bump…I think I just froze the left half of my brain! And it’s the best imitation of a smoothie in a “beer” that I’ve encountered. Passionfruit, watermelon, citrus, that I’d swear was whipped & creamified. Moderate lemon sharpness & bitterness on the finish. No alcohol apparent at all. Frightening. Goes down like a brew half it’s ABV.

Buck up little camper! One of the better examples of fruit soup I’ve tasted, this one could have you sleeping on the basement floor in no time. Excellent brew.

Pours a light/medium gold coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smell is very bright, hoppy and tropical, with notes of pineapple, passion fruit and guava, with a hint of booze. Taste follows the nose, being quite hoppy and tropical, with light citrus notes. Some light biscuity malt coming through as well. Strong notes of sweet, juicy pineapple and guava, with lighter notes of passion fruit and zesty grapefruit. There's a light dankness and just a hint of pine in the background as well. Finishes with a very light bitterness and very mild hop burn, with just a hint of booze coming through in the aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel with a rich body and medium carbonation. While there is a very mild booziness to this, it's still quite impressive how mellow and juicy this is at 10.5% ABV. I still don't really see the point of TIPAs, but have to say that this is exceptionally well-crafted. It also doesn't have these overripe, slightly artificial tasting fruit notes or bubblegum character that you get with many high-ABV IPAs.

Hazy golden orange. Frothy white head. Sticky lace.

So sweet. Tropical, passionfruit, no bitterness. Just like juicy fruit gum.

More wonderful sweetness. Completely masked ABV. Tropical, passion fruit, hardly any bitterness present. No burn.

Sticky, smooth, creamy , juicy. No burn?? 10.5% ABV, can’t believe it
