What's on the Can/Website: "This fruit-forward single IPA features deep flavors of citrus from the hops yet is easy drinking.  Don’t wait until later, enjoy right meow!"

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

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy orange-peach 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%): Oaty and creamy malt-forward with some tropical notes. 4/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; oaty and biscuity-malt forward, with creamy stone fruit tropical towards the aftertaste. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Maybe a tad too malt-forward for me compared with the other Revision beers, but it still works wonderfully with the back-end tropical. These guys have done a wonderful job with the NE-Style hazy brews. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.2/5
