Other Notes: Double IPA w/ Guava. Only real fruit inside!
Brewer Description: (from bottle) It’s the witching hour on a dark, moonless night. You’re huddled with friends around a campfire in the woods far from town, taking turns telling stories. Someone has just recounted a particularly eerie tale about an encounter with a ghost, insisting it was true. You sit quietly, staring into the flames, reluctant to let on that it actually made your skin crawl. Then someone in the shadows clears his throat and begins to speak: “did you hear the one about… the magic valley?”

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 4th July 2019, ‘B2 p8lse’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Melon, guava, lemon, pine and grass.
Taste: Lightly sweet, watermelon, lemon and pine with hints of caramel and guava.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a touch of booze here and there.
Overall: This was ok, but I felt that the guava didn’t really come through strong enough.
