It’s back on tap at the Brewery. They call it a “curiosity” offering. “Guava-matic”.

The guava is very subtle. Hop-o-matic is my favorite Ritual beer and this is a nice variation on it.

On-tap at the brewery itself, on to the beer:

This reddish orange beer is topped with a well retaining head on top. With a sniff, I'm given a clue that this beer could be a very good one. I smell some fresh pine, cantaloupe, resin, and a light note of guava that seems to lift up the spirit of the aroma.

Guava Hop-O-Matic tastes more resiny that I would have expected. There are those pleasing cantaloupe, pine, and guava notes, though they are small compared to the resin. This swims in a medium body of booze, not very bitter, and a pleasure to drink.
