When brewed? Year-round beer.

Where distributed: Wingman Brewers only distributes to Washington and Oregon as of August 2015. I am unsure if they ship anywhere else.

What's on the Website: "Ruddy in color, Ace IPA drops a hop bomb of flavor. Brewed with 5 distinctly Northwest hops, the Simcoe, Citra, Centennial, Cascade, and Bravo hops will have you wanting to drop pint after pint."

Appearance (5%): Starts with a clear-golden to golden-orange pour. Sediment at the bottom of my can gave it a cloudier look. Lacing on the glass, sudsy surface. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): A mix of malty, citrus, hoppy, and floral. Nicely balanced. 3.75/5

Taste (40%): Malty-hoppy to start, with a controlled bitter finish. Grapefruit flavor detected. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium body, velvety on tongue. 4/5

Overall (20%): A decent IPA. Doesn't blow me away but certainly a decent choice if there is nothing else available that I would rather have. $2.69 for a tallboy also makes me hold back on making this a somewhat regular purchase. 3.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.75/5
