16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 5/24/18.
Great golden orange hue. Smell is light tropical fruit. Taste follows nose but not big juice bomb, very balanced. Alcohol bite at end. Feel is creamy smooth. Very nice, as always from GG.

Canned 7/11
Pours a large fluffy creamy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice lacing, clear blond straw color

Nose plenty of hops, sweet blond malts, a bit of alcohol notes, fairly muted though, a little citrus and stone fruit, candied stone fruit and mild tropical maybe pineapple

Taste sweet candy malt again, sweet blond malt, a little candied flavors with candied apricots and stone fruit, a little orange marmalade very light citrus, big pineapple comes through as it warms, a bit of background generic tropical fruits, papaya, guava, little sweet honey malt, sticky sweet finish, a bit more warming alcohol and fusel notes

Mouth is med to fuller bod, but sweet and mild sticky finish, some warming alcohol, decent carb

Overall not bad, some decent hops, sweet malts that blended nicely, a bit too muted on the nose and alcohol maybe a bit much otherwise nice

Smell hits me from 2 feet away, YUM.
Bitter. Not overly impressed.
Can taste alcohol, but I am being very particular.

Canned 7/11/18 poured from 16 oz. can into Teku glass. Pours a dark but not too hazy blonde color with one finger head that disappeared quickly. Nose is very hoppy with guava background. Citrus taste with other tropical flavors blended in. Alcohol is definitely present but not overwhelming. Smooth finish with a nice crispy feel too it.
