REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Off-white head. 4.25/5
Smell (25%): Awesome combinations of sweet tropical citrus. Getting orange, papaya, pineapple, and apricot. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Awesome tropical combination (i.e. orange, papaya, pineapple, and apricot), with controlled bitterness. Slightly dank and malty. Very juicy. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, perhaps slightly towards medium-full bodied, with good carbonation. Very juicy on the tongue and extremely refreshing. 4.75/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. I felt this brought more juiciness than their original Little Juice IPA, making it much more enjoyable in my book. This is a beer I would enjoy at any time, but especially during the warmer months. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.513/5
