This beer tripped me out when we first featured it back in 2011 and once again over three years later when I busted open a bottle I had stashed from the 2011 run. It was still green to be sure, but not quite as vibrant as it was when we first ran it. Definitely a creeper that didn’t feel anywhere near 8% and I found the beer’s herbal qualities to be even more pronounced after some time in the bottle allowing it’s hop profile fade. As I was drinking it, I imagined Dany, the head brewer, darting about in the forest collecting various twigs and vines to toss in the mash. Still a definite lemon/lime citric nature to it and I still got the green tea notes that we picked up originally.
Suffice to say, my mood was altered a bit after downing the bottle while not doing much of anything else on our deck. It was pretty good (my mood) before I opened the beer…But really much, much better after the ghost worked his magic. Be sure to check out our original full tasting notes from when we first ran it.
