Hazy, juicy, funky, fruity, milkshake glitter. These features don’t often interest me when it comes to beer, but they would make for an interesting My Little Pony.

Their collaboration with Modern Times out of San Diego called Spirit Foul was a hit so it’s no wonder they’re going forward with this popular IPA style. Throw in a Star Trek reference and you have ...
