Commercial Description: "This hazy, orange-hued Citra single hop IPA bursts with massive aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, and stone fruits complimented by a full mouthfeel from the heavy use of oats and wheat. Incredibly approachable and lightly bitter." (from Wander Brewing's Facebook post November 18, 2016)

Where distributed: As of June 2018, Wander Brewing is found in the Pacific Northwest.

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

Smell (25%): Lots of tropical. Passion fruit, pineapple, and stone fruit. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Feels light and more session-like at the start, with more of the tropical passion fruit, pineapple, and stone fruit flavors peeking through as you get to the aftertaste. Refreshing and very drinkable. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-light bodied, some carbonation. Juicy. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. I enjoyed the amazing citrus aroma and refreshing experience on this one. Still, a side of me wanted just a bit more flavor that may have put this in my world-class category. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.388/5
