REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear orange-golden into a pint glass. White head. Some lacing left on the glass. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Awesome combinations of sweet tropical citrus (i.e. orange, papaya, pineapple). 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Lovely mix of apricot, papaya, orange, and pineapple. Controlled bitterness through the aftertaste. Slightly dank. Basically exactly as advertised...a Northwest-style IPA. 4.25/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, with good carbonation. Slightly dry on the tongue. 4.5/5
Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. My first beer from 3 Magnets obviously had to be one of their flagship IPAs. I really enjoyed the dankness this beer brought; it has some qualities of a Double IPA or above, even though it's only billed at 65 IBUs. Pleasing on the nose and on the tongue. I will have no problem drinking the entire bottle. And yes, I love the name. 4.25/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.35/5
