What's on the Can/Website: "Pop a top off a can of hops, the waft of aromatic intensity is inevitable. Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic hops deliver sticky, resiny, sweet citrusy hop flavor. Our hazy hoppy beers taken up a notch. Set ‘em up my friends!"

Where distributed: Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!

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

Smell (25%): Balance of resin/dank with sweet tropical citrus orange. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Some octane and malt at the start, but balances wonderfully with sweet citrus. Aftertaste is more sweet citrus orange. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, some carbonation. Predictably sticky, yet still has juicy qualities. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding Triple IPA. The first hazy triple IPA I've had from Revision, Brewing, and it delivered. It has the strength of a Triple IPA, but the sweet citrus still comes through. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.5/5
