Tonight’s selection is from a brewery that puts out really good stuff. They got on the bandwagon of fruit flavored IPAs, which for me have been hit or miss. Hopefully this one is decent. Let’s crack it open.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Tropical fruit meets tropical vibes in this ‘guavacated’ version of our Islander IPA. Brewed with the classic West Coast combo of Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops, this beer gets the tropical treatment with a hefty dose of fresh guava puree. The result is a surprisingly smooth, unfiltered IPA bursting with tropical goodness that’s sure to put you in that island state of mind.”
Random: I’m happy to see more breweries doing cans.
The beer poured with a thick, slightly off white head that was a half a finger high. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright orange in color. It had only minor carbonation visible with guava and lemon juice, not much else. The taste had guava and toasted malt along with lemon flesh. It also had a sesame seed note. The body was on the medium side with light carbonation that needed to be dialed up. It had a lengthy finish with toasted malt. The fruit needed to be more prevalent. The finish was lengthy with malt. A can of this was $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce. This beer was just a miss for me. I wouldn’t rush to have it again.
