Canned 12/2 enjoyed 4/10 so it’s not fresh.
Pours hazy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is hoppy floral with a hint of citrus. Taste is mainly hop bitterness but there’s enough malt sweetness to keep it from being a hop bomb. Feel is good, mild carbonation and good mouthfeel. Overall it’s a good IPA, pleasant looking and easy to drink.

Notes via stream of consciousness: Great name! Nice design on the label. Double dry hopped with Azacca, Cashmere and Ekuanot!!! It's poured a hazy golden body beneath a 2" tall head of slightly yellowed off-white foam. The aroma reminds me of the color purple. It's fruity with notes of sweet berries, citrus, and melon but there's also a thin raspiness to it that's kind of herbal or piney. The taste delivers a lot more of that raspiness, something akin to citrus pith but not quite, and plenty of juicy peach. The malt is sweet but not too sweet, and the bitterness is median to moderate. Other flavor notes include mango, orange/tangerine, pineapple, and even a slight bit of coconut. It's really unique. The malt seems a little wheaty but I'm not finding oats. It's really nicely balanced. Medium bodied and gently crisp and then smooth in the mouth. I'm definitely looking forward to more of this slightly funky but easily accessible and highly enjoyable NEIPA.

Super hazy orange with a thin, white head.

Aroma is mostly guava, with hints of mango and other tropical fruit.

Taste is slightly sweet and fruity, highlighting those tropical fruit notes, with a light bitterness on the finish. Its pleasant, and the sweetness stops short of being cloying.

This is a nice NEIPA, being better than many, if short of Double Nickle's best (such as Failed Resolution - they really need to bring that back). Guava isn't my tropical fruit of choice - being more partial to mango, pineapple, and clementine - but if you like guava then definitely seek this out.
