Where distributed: Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into an 8 oz glass. Unfiltered. Frothy white head, excellent lacing. 4.75/5

Smell (25%): Assertive sweet POG (passion fruit, orange, and guava) aroma. Could pass for the actual juice if I was blindfolded. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; lovely controlled POG tropical experience. Aftertaste is another tropical wave. Guava as usual tends to assert itself more than the other fruits. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Saw this one on draft at my usual beer spot (Belmont Station) and had to get it because it was a hazy Revision IPA that I had not yet seen in a can. As expected, a delicious, tropical-forward, and refreshing brew. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.55/5
