What's on the Can/Website: "Some say tomato, some say tomahto. But you can't say Na-VAH-duh. No way, not never. It's Ne-VAD-A! Vă-da (like this beer is rad-a) is a hazy DIPA, packed full of Nelson Sauvin and Vic Secret hops that provide flavors and aromas reminiscent of laychee, gooseberry, and a touch of earth, layered over a pillowy mouthfeel."
Hops: Nelson Sauvin, Vic Secret.
REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden-light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. Frothy white head, good to excellent lacing. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Tropical with trace floral/earthy notes and oaty-wheat malts. 4.25/5
Taste (40%): Mix of tropical, slight resin, and malt. Towards the back end, mostly pulpy citrus peel and gooseberry blend with a soft, yet sturdy malt backbone. 4.25/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. For once, I couldn't find this Revision beer at Belmont Station, so I went elsewhere to get it. Big fan of the citrus experience here. 4.25/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.263/5
