This is the first oak aged collaboration between North Peak Brewing Company and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales. In this sour ale Passion Fruit and funk make up the nose, bright tartness melds with the Passion Fruit and fades to light notes of cherry and finishes with lingering layers of oak.
In the early fall, twin time travel technicians were diagnosed with a rare and fatal condition rendering them invisible to mortal humans.
Now they are forced to spend eternity in the shadows of immortals with only the company of each other to assuage the pain that comes with mortal invisibility. Gazing long into the abyss, until the abyss gazes back at them.
And, yes. I used that last part on an earlier label. Ouroboros. Life, death, rebirth. Rinse and repeat. Etc.
Cheers & Mahalo plenty!
