Where distributed: As of January 2018, Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered beer. White head, good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Very tropical, with notes of pineapple, guava, and tangerine. Some dank notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%):Slightly dank-forward; transitions to a blossoming tropical with pineapple, guava, and tangerine flavors. Full of flavor. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Juicy and creamy mouthfeel, with a little dry tongue. Tropical sticks on the tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. This is beer #4 for me in Revision's 2017 hazy releases, and while I'm still a mega fan, likely falls short of the others in the series due to such lofty expectations. Same comments apply regarding how pricey these single cans can get. Still, I love the hazy light orange appearance, and awesome aroma/flavor here as usual. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.475/5
