Pipeworks Guavanatrix

This 8.0% ABV Imperial Pale Ale made with guava is batch 505/506 from the Pipeworks Brewing Company of Chicago, Illinois. They make a huge variety of beers, and it seems like there is pretty much no ingredient they won't put in their beer (Cinnamon Toast Crunch anyone?). Check out the lable, according to the bottle, this kinky hopped beer is BDSMmmmmmm good and you should put it in your glass, slave.

The beer pours a deep golden, with tints of apricot. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of white. The aroma is of tropical fruit, and, apparently guava (so guava is that common tropical fruit note, eh). There are lesser amounts of passion fruit and mango skin, and a light earthy muskiness. The tastes follow the aromas, loads of ripe and lush tropical fruits, with a lighter earthy note, followed by a dry and fairly bitter finish. The beer drinks smooth and full, but not heavy, with a light, tingling carbonation. This can dominate me anytime. Yes master, I will put it in and out of my glass over and over again.
