Cloudy to the point of a tinge of white to the otherwise pale gold color. Good starting head of two fingers but it subsides faster than expected given its density. Some streaks and rings for lace.

Weedy and prickly aroma of harsher fresh hop. Notes of pineapple and mango are faintly present.

Relatively weak pale malt presence, but the hop bite is subdued from what I smelled. The body is a bit thinner than most IPAs. This is enhanced by a slightly elevated effervescence level. The finish is just short of a hop bomb, but it lingers a long time.

Canned on 2/20/18.
Look: Pours dark yellow, similar color to orange/pineapple juice. 2 fingers worth of a bubble white head from an easy pour. Some residual glass lacing, but not a bunch.
Smell: Fruit forward. Pineapple, orange, mango, papaya, tangerine, peach and apricot all on the nose, with maybe a hint of banana. Really nice smelling, just not as strong as I would have hoped.
Taste: Pretty much follows the nose, with a little more emphasis on the citrus. I get orange, grapefruit, lemon on the front, with a peachy pineapple backing. Hops are minimal, adding a lemongrass like taste. Nice tasting, with somewhat of a sweet aspect to it. Acidity levels are at a minimum. The more I drink it, the more of the residual sweetness I get.
Feel: Light to medium in body, with low levels of carbonation. Has a nice feel to it, but it isn't pillowy. Not smoothie level, as the can says, but nevertheless enjoyable.
Overall: This is an enjoyable offering. It is full of fruit flavor, but I would hardly call it a "juice smoothie." Regardless, I enjoyed it, and I am grateful to have tried it. Cheers!

The beer pours out a hazy light golden yellow color, with 1 finger of white head(looks like pineapple juice)----------- the aromas are of orange, grapefruit, passion fruit and mango(lighter aroma)------------ the flavors start off tasting just like a fruit smoothie with peach, apricot, mango, vanilla and lesser basil, mid pallet there is some orange and pine with a lot of grapefruit on the back end, the beer has a medium to full mouthfeel with a grassy dry astringent bitter finish---------------- overall this beer was delicious it tasted a lot like a fruit smoothie with out having any fruit added

16oz can served in a pint glass. Dated 2/20/18. Given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours a light hazy amber yellow with a small head and not a lot of carbonation. Smell is fruity. Oranges and pineapples.

Taste is very fruity, with a very hoppy flavor that does't really fit in nicely. It's still good, but not exactly stellar.

Mouthfeel is thin, filmy, and a little still. Overall, it's a good beer, but I think outshone by the other Gun Hills I've tried.

Scent is a strong lemon. Flavor is very citrus forward as the nose denotes however it also fleshes out to herbaceous notes and has a slick resin that drenches the palate.
