What's on the Can/Website: "The density of our beloved hop essence in this gorgeous silken beer drips down from your head and soaks your feet. We hopped this densely with the eternally saturating Citra and Azacca hop varieties. The aromas of passion fruit, mango, and deep citrus-resin will drag you down by the river's edge like rocks in your pockets, showing through like the deep brainsqueals and infinite pulse of gravity clinging to your senses and calling you home from across from furthest extremes of creation's immensity."

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%): Good creamy passion fruit, mango, and other citrus/stone fruit, with complementing oaty malt. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Tropical and citrus-resin to start, then more tropical citrus and stone fruit afterward. Oaty and sweet creamy malts complement. Aftertaste continues that creamiscle-like citrus. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. When I saw that Foreign Objects makes several New England-style hazy IPAs, I had to try for science (and a couple more reviews are on the way after this one). Refreshing, awesome tropical here. Making me a big fan from the first sip. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.638/5
