A Note on This Beer
There just aren’t enough fruity, funky, wild yeast-infused Brett IPAs in the World.
Our team loves them, our members rated the few we’ve offered admirably — but in our entire history at Tavour we’ve only been privy to 3 Brett IPAs.
It’s a difficult style to master, and most IPA makers play it safe and keep their brewing programs free of the unpredictable wild yeast.
But they just taste so delicious, we’re glad an elite brewery like Anchorage, named one of Paste Mag’s Best Craft Breweries, took on the challenge with Ghosts In Their Eyes.
To make it, Anchorage crams the mango and grapefruit notes of Citra and Galaxy Hops into a peachy, wild Brett base until it reaches fruity peaks of flavor that challenge even the most trendy NE-Style IPAs.
Freshly pureed apricots resonate from the first pour. Ruby Red juiciness tickles the tongue with smooth semi-sweet swiftness. Jammy mango and kumquat marmalade dissolves, trickling down terrace upon terrace of orchard-grown delights. Dry hopping extracts maximum fruity character of the hops, leaving minimal residual bitterness — just a dash of grapefruit zest at the end
Today we’re calling on our members to prove that Brett IPA fandom is on the rise. Help us drink the sh*t out of this premier example of the style and we’ll be sure to seek out more of the best Brett IPAs for you in the future.
*You can make Ghosts in Their Eyes taste completely different by aging it for different periods of time before drinking it! Have it fresh for peak citrusy hops or age it for up to a year to ratchet up deep stonefruit flavors — it will make for a sophisticated fruit-filled experience no matter when you crack it open!
