Illusion Delusion IPA

IPA  |  6.6% ABV  |  65 IBU

Surprise! We had a box of Australian Enigma hops left on an old contract, so obviously we had to use them fast like woah. When one brews with Enigma, you find yourself down a wormhole of riddles, and puzzles, and 90s ambient techno soft-pop music. At some point during this daydream, we started thinking about Magic Eye pictures, and how bullshit those things were! Like, did anybody ACTUALLY ever see those supposed hidden images? WE THINK NOT. It had to be one of the greatest ruses of the 90s – “Yeah, um, just stare at this colorful pattern until you go crosseyed and start to hyperventilate and we swear, you’re going to see an image of a….horse. No, a cat. An animal. You WILL see an animal. It’s there. Oh, you can’t see it? Well maybe go buy our newest book. You’ll see something in that one for sure.” ANYWAYS…this beer, it’s got Enigma, plus a little Mosaic & Citra. You will taste pineapple, papaya, guava and nectarine – those flavors are in there. If you don’t taste them, just buy another one. You will taste them in the next one. Promise.
