What's on the Can/Website: "Creating a flavor of awesomeness, this West Coast IPA hopped exclusively with the one and only Citra hop is built for enjoyment. Tropically sweet hop flavors and aromas bring to mind ripe tangerine with an edge of passionfruit. Go ahead and crush it, gulp it guzzle it, slam it."

Where distributed: Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!
Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden into a pint glass. White head, trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing tropical grapefruit, passion fruit, and tangerine, with complementing malt and hop notes. 4/5

Taste (40%): Clean, pleasing tropical from start to finish. A bit diluted on flavor, but still tasty and refreshing. Not much on the aftertaste other than the remnants of tropical and hops. 4/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome IPA. To me, a clean, straightforward IPA that celebrates the Citra hop properly. Given the abundance of memorable brews that I've had, there's not a ton here that breaks it into that upper echelon. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.038/5
