News Article: Click here for New School Beer's article! This beer was made with Vic Secret, Denali, Citra, and Waimea hops.

Where distributed: Unknown, likely distributed just in the Pacific NW markets. Grains of Wrath will be a new brewery located in Camas, Washington. Former Fat Head's brewer Mike Hunsaker will open Grains of Wrath around Summer 2017.

Appearance (5%): Poured clear light golden into a pint glass. White head, with some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical citrus, pine, and stone fruit. Very inviting. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Lots of tropical citrus and pine, perhaps slight dank. Citrus and stone fruit mostly on the aftertaste. Delicious beer. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Slightly dry on the tongue with some stickiness. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Grains of Wrath has produced another successful collaboration. I definitely look forward to GoW opening in Summer 2017. Again, the beer could be a bit on the pricey side, but comes through with awesome flavors and aromas. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.463/5
