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 orange-peach into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment suspended in the beer. White head; trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Predominantly sweet citrus orange and ripe stone fruit with ideal complementing oaty malt. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, soft tropical orange, and peach/mango notes with oaty malt backbone in the middle. Aftertaste continues with tropical flavors. Slightly muted flavor, but a pleasing one. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Refreshing and juicy here, just hoped for a bit more intense tropical experience towards the end to reinforce the fruity goodness. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.338/5
