Where distributed: 3 Magnets Brewing distributes to the Pacific Northwest. I do not know if they ship to other states/regions.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy dark golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Noticeable floral with tropical stone fruit and lemon notes. 3.75/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; floral-forward, then notes of lemon and stone fruit. Aftertaste brings a slight citrus experience. Soft drinking experience overall, though; searching for a tad more flavor. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): A decent IPA. I'm generally not much of a fan when floral characteristics come into play these days, but this version of Ledge Sesh also had good tropical to balance everything. For me, the flavor was almost too soft (I like a good flavor kick), but I can totally drink all of it. It was good to try for science, but 3 Magnets has released many other beers that I'd rather enjoy. 3.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.825/5
