What's on the Can/Website: "That infinite soundtrack of longing & manic passion.... This New-American Hoppy Ale was inspired by the perfect expression of those moments and's fading and paling and we know that it's over, so get out and drink the manic sensory explosion of Citra & Vic Secret hops in this beer that burst with aromas of deep red grape skins & tropical citrus. Soc just put on your head and put on your pout and let's hit opening time down on Fascination Street." Read more here!

Where distributed: Foreign Objects is usually distributed in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Virginia, Connecticut, and Illinois (Chicago area). Click here to see where!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head; good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Tropical-resinous forward, with lovely creamy tangerine, stone fruit, grape, and other tropical. Complementing oaty malt. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Tropical-resinous forward to start, then a burst of tropical tangerine and grape. Aftertaste continues that creamiscle-like citrus. Octane more noticeable here than with Foreign Objects' Wet Gravity beer. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. To me, similar in all aspects to Wet Gravity, and that's definitely a good thing. Foreign Objects is quickly becoming another favorite brewery, just like how Revision Brewing has become a mainstay in my review lineup. If only Foreign Objects distributed to the Pacific NW, then I'd be one happy panda. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.538/5
