COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Guava/Salt Single Hop IPA. The beer world is big. The beer world is also way bigger than just beer. I believe that you taste with your eyes before you taste with your tongue. Being that this beer is in a can, we wanted you to taste "strange and cool" with your eyes before you taste "strange and cool" with your tongue. Creative Director was brewed exclusively with Citra in homage to Mikkeller’s pioneering Single Hop series that set the beer world on fire many moons ago. Conditioned atop gobs of guava purée in homage to our perpetual marrying of hops and various fruits. Then we added salt just because we were feeling like a bunch of Creative Directors.

Garrold (5511) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Tap. Mikkeller and Friends, Stefansgade. Bright yellow. Light haze. Frothy, lasting, bright white head. Nose has loads of bright, ripe citrus. Lots of pulpy, melon like fruit, which presumably comes from the guava. Background of light, savoury salinity. Overall fairly unusual, but quite mouthwatering. Taste has a distinct salinity. Pulpy, fruity bitterness on top. Herbal oiliness on the palate. Gets a bit weird really. Salty, fruity bitter finish. Smells fantastic, but it’s just too odd thereafter, for me.

Scopey (15459) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Keg at Mikkeller Bar. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is fresh, fragrant, crazy juicy, grassy, sweet papaya, peach, guava, watermelon, bready, grass and dank. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter, cleaner than expected, fresh pine needles, grassy, bit dank, weedy, ripe fruit, papaya, guava, bread, salty, light alcohol with a firmly dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Great balance and high drinkability. Tastee.
