    I have a few awesome IPAs this year brewed with guava -- two from Short's Brewing including Cat's Pajama's and Freedom of '78, and I had one at a local brewpub this weekend. I see New Belgium is releasing a DIPA with guava and spruce tips soon.

    Any guava IPAs out there that you all enjoy?

    The only Guava IPA I ever had was Kona Hanalei, but I'm not sure if I enjoyed it... It was all right, actually, but I thought the guava made it smell quite unpleasant and I do prefer other tropical fruit in my IPAs, to be honest.

    For Northern California breweries..

    Track 7 has a Guava IPA called: Gold Guava. It's fine.

    Temescal has a Guava Pale Ale called: Guava Boat. The first batch was okay. The most recent batch in cans was phenomenal. They used double the guava puree as the original batch.

    Just make your own beer cocktail? If that's a thing?

    4 Hands makes a great IPA with guava called Super Flare. It also has mango but the guava is what I really taste in it.

    Pink Guava Dank Juice from Oddside is pretty darn tasty...
