Imperial Pale Ale with Guava Added

This kinky lady is very confident that this consensual pairing of hopped up pale ale and juicy, tropical guava is about to slap you across the face, and give your tastebuds a tart whipping. It's BDSMmmmm so good. This femme submits to no one. It'd be pure torture not to release the pressure under this cap. Now, be a good slave and put this in your glass.

Hazy golden orange. Dense white head, spotty lacing.

Faint aromas of tropical fruit. Passionfruit, pineapple. Not as pronounced as I would have thought. Lite sweet honey smell.

Guava, passion fruit, honey, and slightly grainy.

Low carbonation, body is on the syrupy side.

Another good beer by pipeworks, though not as good as most of their other IPAs.

Dandelion golden yellow and slightly cloudy in appearance.

Very sweet, the guava and sugar are very abundant in the nose, but not too sweet, very enticing.

Taste is guava forward with slight hop bitterness, the jaggery sugar adds a bold sweetness on the backend.

A thicker mouthfeel than most Imperial Pales, slightly more syrupy than I'd like.

Overall a very interesting beer, and perfect for summer weather. The slight syrupy-ness is what gets me though and for that reason I probably wouldn't purchase this again, but tasty to try once!

Hazy orange gold, thin layer foam, some delicate spindly lacing. Struggles to form much of a head, it's more of a thin ring at all times.

Aroma is somewhat subdued, mild tropical fruit from the guava addition. Kind of a light pale ale otherwise.

Smooth and sort of slippery, slight astringent tartness from the fruit, light hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Fruitiness is somewhat subtle, was hoping for a little more overt guava based on the name, but it's drinkable overall.

22 oz. bottle, Batch #411/412 printed on the label. Another new beer creation from Pipeworks, the label describing this one as an 'imperial pale ale with guava added'. 'Now, be a good slave and put this in your glass'.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a beautiful bright citrusy yellow-orange colored body with over a finger of soapy white head. Leaves nice scattered spotty lacing behind. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is tropical, fruity, and floral. Citrus, orange, lemon, herbal / grassy, some slight chili sort of smell, and some earthy yeast presence.

T - The taste follows the nose - super fruity and tropical. The guava evokes an earthy vegetal quality to it all, along with some citrus nuances. Orange, pineapple, mango. Slight yeast presence and some bready honeyed malt to keep things in good balance.

M - The feel is super smooth and creamy. This thing drinks like a glass of juice - it doesn't even taste like it has alcohol in it let alone 8.00% abv. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.

Overall, another wonderful and unique beer from Pipeworks. These guys are ridiculously good at what they do each and every time.

Pipeworks Guavanatrix ---4/5.

S-Good deal of guava, rather citrusy with slight earthy notes.

O-The guava was an interesting an beneficial addition.
