Jolly Pumpkin Fuego del Otono after 18 months..

Delicious. I can't say enough about this brewery. At first this beer didn't intrigue me too much, but now the funkiness has come out perfectly. Absolutely stunning looking beer. Brilliantly clear gold body with heavy fast moving carbonation. On top sits a big rich white head that leaves elegant lacing (see bottom picture). The aroma is acidic and tart, with lemons, fruit, spice, cheese, and loads of funk-osity. The taste is wild yet tame, funky yet approachable, and ridiculously complex. Spicy and sweet in the mouth, but it finishes dry as a bone with a long lemony aftertaste. The acidity is soft and balanced. I'm floored by how awesome this beer has become. With every sip I become a bigger JP fan. Best brewery in America, besides Earth of course.
