One of my favorite ipas. The guava works perfectly and the smell is amazing. My favorite shorts beer by far. Only complaint is this year the back end if the taste seems slightly off this year from years past. Still a great beer, highly recommended from any ipa fan.

Agave dominates this beer. Hint of grapefruit and hint of hops. Very sweet. Many better short's ipas out there.
