What's on the Can/Website: "The cool thing about balloons is that they get high. Hot air  balloons get really high… in elevation.  Helping you achieve that positive lift, we present Elevation Calculation; a carefully balanced NE DIPA igniting liftoff with a buoyant blend of Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe."

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%): Big tropical citrus with slightly assertive oaty malt notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; tropical citrus-forward with good creamy malt in the middle. Predominantly tropical citrus/tangerine aftertaste. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent Double IPA. Again, perhaps a tad on the creamy malty side but it's explained by the 8% ABV tag. Still a big plus when it comes to tropical citrus. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.325/5
