What's on the Can/Website: "Drink me deeply and you will experience the deluge of my perfected mystical expansion in the heaven of our theta waves! Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe hops commingle and inside their ivory box resides the intense aromas of deep grape must, peach and citrus pulp, gooseberry, and resinous earth waiting to lead you through the gates of horn and ivory to the heaven underneath!"

Where distributed: Foreign Objects is usually distributed in select states, but apparently may have different places where their beers are made. This one is apparently from Wisconsin.

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

Smell (25%): Soft resinous, pulpy tropical citrus and stone fruit (peach), with complementing oaty-wheat malts. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Mostly tropical citrus and peach experience. Slight resinous notes and oaty-wheat malts complement virtually ideally. The grape must and gooseberry comes through on the back end for me. Very refreshing and delicious. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class IPA. No surprise here, another delicious tropical-forward hazy IPA from Foreign Objects. The flavor and ABV are right around the sweet spot where I like it. The extra citrus notes towards the aftertaste make this even more memorable. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.688/5
