Where distributed: 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; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): More resin-lupulin forward, with sweet tropical citrus orange. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Resin-lupulin malt balanced with sweet tropical. Tropical citrus then continues into the aftertaste. Another refreshing hazy IPA. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. The expectations remain high these days on Revision's hazy beers, especially after I've enjoyed so many of them. Another delicious offering here, as 100% Mosaic-hop beers almost always seem to be a hit with me. More resin or lupulin that I usually expect from a 6% beer, but it worked very well with the sweet tropical citrus and gave it an additional dimension. Amusing name and kickass label design, too. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.475/5
