4/5  rDev +11.4%

16 oz can, about 3 weeks old at this point

Hops: Pekko, BRU-1 (never heard of either of them)

This was pretty nice. They've been releasing a lot of IPAs lately with rotating hops and this is probably not quite as good as the others I've had, but maybe it's the hop selection.

Made with Pekko and BRU-1 hops! Pekko hops are named for a mythological Finnish God of farming and this coupled with the beer’s huge candy nose and smooth citrus finish was the muse inspiring the namesake of the poetic epic, Kalevala.

I'm a big fan of Commonwealth beers, but this one is a dud. From a 2-week-old can, pours a somewhat murky orange. Big head and good lacing. Smell is initially very fruity, with kiwi and passionfruit and a kind of general hop candy note. But it is quickly overwhelmed by off-notes, maybe diacetyl. Taste is dominated by off flavors. Drinkable, but barely.
