What's on the Can: "Big, punchy tropical and citrus hop flavors dance with a smooth malt body. Let's party! I said a hip hop, hippie to the hippie the hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it out."

Where distributed: Level Beer currently distributes within Oregon.

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Unfiltered, some sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Blend of floral and tropical peach/nectarine, with creamy malt backbone. 3.5/5

Taste (40%): More a one-note tropical stone fruit presence with floral hops. No second wave of citrus, nothing really of note that sticks around. 3.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An average to decent IPA. It was at least a bit refreshing. However, any tropical was not necessarily "big" and "punchy"; more a bitter-hoppy one that seemed one-note. 3.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.666/5
