Where distributed: Level Beer currently distributes within Oregon.

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

Smell (25%): Stone fruit, including peach and nectarine with oaty malts. 4/5

Taste (40%): Largely follows the nose. Soft stone fruit to start with complementing malt backbone. Aftertaste brings a nice wave of citrus to tie it all together. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome to excellent IPA. This beer doesn't have the real assertive tropical blast I generally prefer from a start-to-finish standpoint, but it's a refreshing brew, and the citrus on the back end leaves me a happy panda. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.138/5
