What the brewer says

“Old School meets New School in this bal­anced, fresh dou­ble dry-hopped IPA. Brewed with guava puree for full fla­vor and com­plex­ity. Hop-burst with Mo­saic, Cen­ten­nial, and Ci­tra.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sai­son-es­que. Spicy, flo­ral, hints of le­mon and pep­per with a nice dry im­pres­sion. Trop­i­cal fruit—guava, lime, and even cus­tard comes out as it warms.” Fla­vor: “Sim­i­lar to a white IPA in terms of spici­ness, hints of white pep­per and gin­ger that pair nicely with a back­ing trop­i­cal fruiti­ness. Guava char­ac­ter has a light sweet­ness that helps bal­ance out the tart­ness a bit. Light body, dry and crisp on the fin­ish.” Over­all: “A ses­sion beer in­tended for warm weather re­fresh­ment. Might make you think of a mar­garita. Maybe pair with a shot of tequila.”
