What's on the Website: "Evolutionary, mind bending, juicy.

"This evolving series is an exploration of hop-perception, pushing the limits of your lupulin receptors. Each batch is limited and brewed exclusively for the Pacific Northwest. Hops, malts, and yeast may vary from batch to batch. The 7.6% ABV will always remain the same.

"To see what you taste, go to and check out information on the pint you are experiencing. Fields of Green will be released in limited runs, from time to time, available in color-changing 16-ounce four-pack cans and draft."

Hops: Lotus, Citra, Axacca, Motueka
Malts: 2-Row Barley, Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Flaked Oats.
Yeast: Juicy.

Where distributed: Fort George distributes just in the Pacific Northwest.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange-peach into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Blend of lupulin-resin with tropical stone fruit mango, passion fruit, guava, and citrus. Complementing creamy, oaty malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; creamy lupulin-resin uplifts the tropical stone fruit mango presence that much more. Complementing malt backbone. Just like Kay, the tropical continues on while the lupulin fades into the background. Aftertaste is tropical stone fruit. Very refreshing. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class IPA. To me, "Lucy" was better than "Kay", with tropical more the star this time around. Resin and oaty malts still work for a more full-bodied brew. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.65/5
