Commercial Description: "This hazy IPA is whirlpooled with Ekuanot, Simcoe and Mosaic lupulin powder. It was then dry hopped with even more Ekuanot, Simcoe and Mosaic lupulin powder creating light, crisp and slightly dank flavors of grapefruit and apricot."

Where distributed: As of June 2017, 3 Magnets Brewing ships just to the Pacific Northwest. I know they are at least found in Oregon and Washington. See if 3 Magnets ships to your area!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Frothy white head and good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Tropical citrus and passion fruit. Complementing yeast and malt akin to a New England-style IPA. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Tropical-forward, with passion fruit and tangerine on the back end. Good flavor from start to finish, but would like just a bit more. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Clean. Juicy on the tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. The flavor and appearance certainly suggest New England-style IPA, and it delivered on all fronts. A very drinkable beer that I would enjoy any time of the year. The usual price for a 16 oz can. 3 Magnets comes through with another tasty brew! 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.35/5
