Birds Fly South The Blueprint

What the brewers say

“Old School meets New School in this balanced, fresh double dry-hopped IPA. Brewed with guava puree for full flavor and complexity. Hop-burst with Mosaic, Centennial, and Citra.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Saison-esque. Spicy, floral, hints of lemon and pepper with a nice dry impression. Tropical fruit—guava, lime, and even custard comes out as it warms.”

Flavor: “Similar to a white IPA in terms of spiciness, hints of white pepper and ginger that pair nicely with a backing tropical fruitiness. Guava character has a light sweetness that helps balance out the tartness a bit. Light body, dry and crisp on the finish.”

Overall: “A session beer intended for warm weather refreshment. Might make you think of a margarita. Maybe pair with a shot of tequila.”
