Pours a slightly hazy dull orange yellow with a finger of pillowy off-white foam.

Very tropical fruit notes of guava, papaya, melon, and subtle citrusy notes of lemon and grapefruit.

Big juicy guava, papaya, lemon, and a laid back biscuity malt backbone.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, juicy.

Overall, two of my favorite breweries collide and made a damn good beer!

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - A pale orange, slim white head, pretty transparent but still has the slightest haze.

Smell - Pine, juicy tropical fruitiness, also some grapefruit and what suspect to be subtle guava.

Taste - Juicy sticky fruity resin and grapefruit right at the beginning that contributes a tart quality that eventually becomes more mellow and flavors of dryer pine, grapefruit zest, and an outstanding fruity flavor of guava that seems to carry well the entire time.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, medium carbonation, refreshing, tart.

Overall - Good beer. First time having this beer and I'm gonna say I'm not surprised by the taste. Defintely looking out for this one again next year.
