What's on the Can/Website: "An internal warrior goddess, a kind of cosmic, karmic, super-heroine, says don't mess with the good, else you're gonna get whupped. Spiritual Gangster is easy drinking with hops that lend to ripe tangerine-like notes and aromas with a hint of pine and a whirl of milk sugar."

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

Smell (25%): Ripe citrus tangerine with pine or slight resinous complementing. Also oaty malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Lovely citrus-tangerine flavors which gradually increase into the aftertaste. Milk sugars help add to the sweetness but do not overpower. Slightly diluted citrus, though; wish there was a bit more of that. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Back to Revision's tasty hazy brews, and this one, as usual, gets a thumbs up from me. Tangerine is the star here, and the milk sugars come through more on the back end. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.313/5
