What's on the Website: "A blend of our favorite hops woven into a canvas of sunlight and unicorn tears. Not created for the faint-hearted IPA lover; but for those who love the journey. Aromas of guava, passionfruit and sweet lemon burst from the glass. A unique expression of juicy tropical flavors tangles your taste buds in an embrace both fierce and beautiful. Out Tangle is a pallet bender unlike any other..."

Where distributed: As of September 2018, Coldfire Brewing distributes just within Oregon. They just started releasing cans of beer in late January 2018.

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment in the beer and at the bottom of the can. White head, trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): POG-like (passion fruit, orange, and guava) with sweet citrus and complementing malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Mostly tropical-forward from start to finish. Fits the NE-style IPA profile nicely, more malt presence towards the aftertaste. Good flavor throughout. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy on the tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Another quality hazy IPA from Coldfire. The malt may have been a bit more noticeable here, but the tropical remains the star. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.338/5
