What's on the Can/Website: "Pete pedaled deep into the Sierras, dead set on a legendary expedition. Along the way he ran out of rations, and when he finally arrived at the brewery he wasn't the same dude, he was in a HAZE. He was babbling about discovering an oasis where Amarillo and Citra glowed pink in the Sierra sunset. Pete's Secret Stache... unchained, unfiltered, and hazed out."

Hops: Amarillo, Citra.

Where distributed: Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!
Appearance (5%): Poured hazy orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, good to excellent lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Tropical citrus and stone fruit with complementing oaty malts. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, Tangerine, mango, and other citrus/stone fruit blend ideally with the soft malt backbone. Aftertaste is all tropical and includes faint citrus peel. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Very juicy qualities with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. To me, a beer that I could drink just about every day. Lots of tropical goodness. Basically what I expect out of Revision Brewing, given how many delicious hazy IPAs I've tried from them. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.438/5
