What's on the Can/Website: "We think about beer, a lot. Synapses firing, thoughts bubbling, ideas percolating in an ever-evolving quest to make somethin' super tasty. This beer was brewed with Citra, Simcoe and a bit of milk sugar.* We hope you enjoy our latest liquid thought.."

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, good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Mostly sweet tropical citrus. Getting the oaty malts and milk sugar. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Soft sweet malt with burst of tropical sweet citrus. Milk sugar gives it a creamsicle-like experience. All tropical citrus on the aftertaste. Refreshing. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding Double IPA. Nice tropical presence, and it drinks easier than its stated 8.5% ABV tag. The milk sugar works here because the tropical still shines. The mega citrus aftertaste is where it's at, though. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.475/5
