A nimbus is a a luminous cloud surrounding a super-natural being. It is also a citrusy, tropical, sweet fruity, stone fruity, grape-fruity piney, zesty, flowery, earthy and woody IPA. Halo!
Over quite a few brews of different IPAs, we’ve been trying to perfect this idea we have of a beer that is 6,5% vol. and liquid sunshine. While we know perfection is fleeting since the goal constantly moves, we also know we probably won’t reach it. Nor do we think we would want to. Stagnation would loom. But we’ll give it a fair go every time.
For our last time doing this, we wanted to start off on a secluded tropical beach. Palm trees, crystal clear water, all the luscious fruits you could eat. The works. And then go up, up and away towards the stars and beyond. Real ’Fly me to the moon’ stuff. Not only with the lyrics but with all the colorful chords too.
It turns out we were not done.
Also, this time, all that thinking, traveling, and music resulted in two beers. Carefully crafted to take you places. Just open the can, pour the beer into a glass and watch the beer sparkle. Outer space!
