What's on the Can: "UPS: 'Hello, welcome to UPS.'

US: 'Um...not beer...definitely not beer.'"

Where distributed: As of 2021, Lowercase Brewing distributes within Washington state. It would otherwise have been available at Good Word Brewing in Georgia.
Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange-golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment at the bottom of the can. Very frothy white head, good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Blend of malt, citrus/stone fruit, and earthy notes. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Starts slightly earthy dank/malt, then gradually more citrus orange/tangerine and lemon creep in. Aftertaste has more citrus peel. Drinks right around its stated ABV. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Everything works harmoniously on this collaboration IPA, from the earthy notes to the citrus punch. I'm a fan. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.413/5
