Commercial Description: "Questionable Advice. Dry-Hopped with Nelson and Citra Hops, this tasty hazy IPA hits you with a burst of grapefruit citrus with bright white wine character from the New Zealand grown Nelson hops. Try this beer on tap and take home some 4-packs, while you can!"

Hops: Nelson and Citra

Where distributed: Council Brewing distributes likely just within California.

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tons of tropical sweet citrus, including orange and grapefruit. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Smooth tropical citrus from start to finish. A bit of malt also towards the front but then the tropical takes over. Getting orange, tangerine, and perhaps some grapefruit. Very refreshing and drinkable. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; some carbonation. Very juicy. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Pleasing and consistent sweet tropical throughout will by itself get a high rating. Price is on par with similar beers these days. Totally worth getting. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.563/5
