Super Smooth: Guava
Chapman Crafted Beer
A Note on This Beer
“Whatever tastes good, tastes good.”
So says Brian Thorson, head brewer at Orange, California’s Chapman Crafted Beer. And Brian would know, because he’s spent years crafting some of the taste-goodiest beers around.
If you recognize Thorson’s name, it might be because he’s a former head brewer at Drakes. Or, maybe you know him from Boston’s Harpoon Brewery, or even California’s Trumer Brauerei.
Craft Beer and Brewing named Chapman a Breakout Brewery just a few months ago, and Wine Enthusiast named one of their Hazies among the 25 Best Beers of 2018. Because, with Thorson at the helm, Chapman’s beers taste GOOD.
And we think today’s Super Smooth: Guava Milkshake IPA is even better than good. It’s stupendous! Triumphant! Magically delicious!
Dank and fruity Simcoe, Galaxy, and Loral Hops amplify a gigantic dose of Guava Purée in this beer, like a tropical fruit salad. A touch of lactose lends it a creamy finish, but an almost clear body hints at its insane drinkability!
There aren’t many milkshake IPAs that you want to drink all day, but this crushable beauty tastes so dang GOOD that you’ll be reaching for can after can. And, unless you’re heading to the West Coast soon, your only shot at it is right here.
