(B) This beer had a sweet smell. 6:01PM PT

(D) I came back to the Guava Islander IPA after finishing half of the Early Bird. It tasted sweet like the smell. Though it was technically bitter, relative to the Stingray Imperial IPA and Early Bird, it wasn't.

While it should taste like guava, it reminded me of eating a tangerine.

On a different note, the smell remained amazing.

The beer was extremely bitter. 6:53PM PT
