Where distributed: Brouwerij West can be found in California. Apparently, Portland may now get shipments of their beers at least occasionally.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light golden-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment suspended in the beer. White head; some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Mostly peach and mango with complementing oaty malt. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Pleasing tropical stone fruit presence. Tropical includes peach, mango, papaya, and berry. More stone fruit bliss on the aftertaste. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Notes are quite similar to the 8 1/2 Hazy IPA, but at least this one has more flavor, in my book. Again, very refreshing and juicy. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.35/5
