Commercial Description: "Great Notion and Grains of Wrath collaboration is finally here!!! Nelson, Citra and Vic Secret come together in this delicious haze bomb!!!"

Where distributed: To the best of my knowledge, this beer is staying in Oregon and Washington.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Some white head. Good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Tropical orange, tangerine, and other citrus. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, refreshing tropical with pleasing citrus aftertaste. Could have used a bit more flavor at the end of the day, but still fine. Drinks so easy for 7%, huge plus. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Slight dry tongue, but mostly juicy. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. A successful collaboration between brewers who love to brew the new England-style. Can't wait for Grains of Wrath to finally open their new spot in Camas; it will be well worth the drive for me. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.325/5
