Short’s and Half Acre Freedom of ’78 (Pure Guava IPA)

Short’s Brewing Company, Bellaire, Michigan AND
Half Acre Brewing Company, Chicago, Illinois
Freedom of ’78
(Pure Guava) IPA
6.9% ABV
12 oz. bottle

This remarkable beer smells like the tastiest of IPAs; high citrusy hops fairly burst forth. The Guava only reveals itself as a surprising aftertaste, whispering to the palate once the beer is down your throat and you mistakenly think the whole tasting experience of that single sip is over. As the glass was exposed to the air the guava echo seemed to fade, but perhaps I just became accustomed to it. A strange, subtle, brave, and very interesting beer. FREEDOM.
