What's on the Can/Website: "Hey Bear, looks like you had a good time. Guess what, today is a new day and we're gonna slay it again. Sabro brings the tropic thunder with hop flavors and aromas of ripe pineapple and a touch of coconut, while Vic Secret lends distinct citrus character, all floating on a pillowy malt cushion."

Where distributed: Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!
Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered. Frothy white head, good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Blend of coconut and pineapple with complementing (yet solid) oaty-wheat malts. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): More assertive malt and tropical blend (coconut-pineapple) initially, then a wave of citrus and pine afterward. Citrus peel and coconut aftertaste. Still refreshing for 8.5%. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Full of flavor and definitely recommended, especially if you like pina coladas (no I won't start singing the song). 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.413/5
