12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 5/23/16.

Pours a nice looking orange, cloudy, with a one and a half finger head with lots of really foamy lacing. Smell is citrus hops- guava, pineapple, some grapefruit, a little lemon, light malt and yeast, some resiny hop aroma. Some dank hops when warm. Taste is strong citrus hops- guava, pineapple, grapefruit, light malt, some caramel, biscuits, resiny hops. Medium bitterness throughout. Smooth, refreshing, decent body.

The guava really stands out, good flavor overall. An easy drinker., enjoyable. Worth a purchase.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. A clear golden orange color with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is of musty tropical fruit with a heavy does of pink guava. Some sweeter candied malts and honey mingle. Flavor is highlighted with the guava, along with some pineapple and grapefruit. It is not as sweet as the aroma would indicate, but the malts help balance the hops and fruit well. Well carbonated and light feel with a clean refreshing finish. Enjoyable, but not something I would want to drink over and over.
