look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: A hazy yellow in color with a light tan head.

S: Dried apricot, peach, pineapple, and orange juice.

T: Juicy tasty hops! Tropical fruit, with orange, and a touch of grapefruit pith bitterness. There is a bit of an earthy hop after taste that I am not in love with.

M: Very light mouthfeel, with effervescent carbonation.

O: Overall pretty tasty, I'm not in love with the with the hop profile, and the carbonation is a little higher for me.. still light and refreshing.

Nearly clear gold color. White 1 finger head. Very little lacing.

Smells of sweet tropical fruit, melon and faint onion.

Taste is sweet fruit, melon, veggie something with a fairly dry, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is medium. Ample carbonation. Smooth.

Good but not memorable. There are much better offerings for the money.

1 PINT can
Served in an oversized, stemless wine glass

This beer pours a brilliant amber color with golden highlights. It is topped with several inches of beige head that coats the glass as it recedes.

It has some tropical fruit, citrus, and melon in the aroma.

The taste is more melon and tropical fruit with minimal bitterness.

Medium bodied and mouthfeel

Man, I was hoping to love this beer because I love Jolly Pumpkin, but I find it just okay.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 5/3/2019. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly crisp/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is an fantastic IPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, easy, and fairly crisp to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish; not overly aggressive. Amazing Chinook, Falconers Flight, Mosaic profile. Extremely juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with an awesome balancing clean pale malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding west coast style example.

Canned on 5/3/19, so super fresh. After cracking, you get hit with an immediate super dank, fresh hop nose. Awesome smell overall. Very clear color/not hazy. Upon sipping, great amount of carbonation. Very hop forward with citrus and mango notes, and good bitterness at the end. Really great beer and I'm glad to see Jolly pumpkin canning their stuff outside from their normal sour offerings.
