A good and hoppy brew. Would definitely drink again. Post phish wrigley food.

This kind of smells like a sausage. I don’t know how to describe the flavor its like a sausage pine tree... I am confused because that sounds awful but I don’t hate it. I don’t know what’s real anymore..

Growler, courtesy the Chicago crew, thanks! Pours orange-gold, big white head. Aroma is dank, floral, tropical. Taste is bitter, very dank, tropical hops, some fruity and malty sweetness. Palate is creamy, bitter finish.

On tap at 2015 GTMW, pours a golden orange with a thin white head, the aroma has a lot of citrus and guava that comes through with a balanced amount of sweetness too, the flavor has a lot of the guava at first and the fruit is very nice in the finish, nice mouthfeel too, pretty good stuff.

Grand slam of an iPa for half acre. Guava explosion on top of the nice hoppy backbone. This is now the best beer of the summer hands down. Smells like guava and quenched your thirst like no other. Ha at half acre

Draft. Huge grave nose from a mile away. Taste is fleshy fruit with aight bitterness and a light tropical tartness. Pretty damn solid but the fruit lends a subtle sweetness that makes this less than totally crushable brah. Tame tho.

Draft. Goldne pour, nice foamy head that sticks. Guava aroma all the way it dominates, flaovr is also dominated by guava with a otuch of tartness. Good fruit beer.

Smells very sweet, lots of guava with some hops. Kind of nice. Not a ton of foam, very light coloration. Taste is sugary with lots of guava. An ipa paletas?

On draft, day of release. Very guava forward. Oddly starts with how guava finishes. But then has a pine and citrus hop finish. Mild bitterness.
