Notes/Commercial Description:
This may be the craziest idea we've had yet but who better to collaborate with when doing something crazy than world renown cocktail lounge The Aviary? We brewed a double IPA with Citra and Simcoe hops then we added passionfruit puree and rotary evaporated fresno chiles. (Rotary evaporation leaves behind all the capsaicin normally found in chiles. So, the resultant liquid has the essence of a fresno chile and none of the heat.) The finished product is a sensory experience unlike any beer we've ever had. There is a wonderful hop aroma and slight bitterness that plays wonderfully with the tartness of the passionfruit and the distinct characteristics of the chiles. Drink as fresh as possible. Look for The One Horned Wonder on the bottle list at The Aviary as well as paired with a dish on the upcoming menu at Next.

Pours incredibly hazy pale orange with little light making it through and a one fingered head that retains nicely.

Smell has huge passion fruit aromas as well as citrusy hoppy aromas and a butterscotch candy like yeast aromas. Green pepper aromas come out much more as it warms.

Taste follows the nose, big passion fruit flavor with a mild dry tartness. Piney citrus hops follow along with a moderate green chili flavor that has very mild heat.

Mouthfeel is good. Moderate carbonation a balances the big body and bold flavors.
