This intersting brew from Short's pours a hazy and sandy straw orange with a nice frothy 2 finger that laces nicely.
Oh boy, what a beautiful nose!!! Guava, grapefruit, orange, citrus, a slight toasted oats wheaty undertone. Very nice whiffs here.
Wow, instantly guava, grapefruit, before I even inhale, then a nice blend of citrus, orange, guave, more grapefuit, a nice sour/bitterness from that grapefruit/guava taste, this is really very tasty. I get a nice blend of fresh hops throughout, great freshness, are those cascade hops? Well done Short's. Nice hoppy aftertaste, and good dry almost sour finish, very reminisent of grapefruit ( I guess that is more the Guava). Very very refreshing, alchol is well masked throughout, great creativity, good balance and smooth medium bodied drink.
Short's release a massive number of different beers each year, and it seems that sometimes they may dilute themselves, and just when you start to believe this, they bring out a new beautiful brew like this.
Wonderful, would go nicely with some aged spicy cheese and creamy pasta. I really enjoyed this and will be drinking this frequently throughout the summer.
