REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Off-white head and some lacing on the glass. 4.25/5
Smell (25%): Slight malt with tropical fruit (grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine). 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Balanced combination of malt, tropical citrus (grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine), and dankness. Some alcoholic octane. Juicy from start to finish. Fruity and hop-forward. Very drinkable for 9.4%. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, velvety on the tongue and extremely refreshing. Smooth. 4.5/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Another successful collaboration that again brought juiciness to the table. 3 Magnets hits another home run with a refreshing, delicious IPA. Most times, I forgot or couldn't tell that this was 100 IBUs and 9.4% ABV. Freakin' awesome. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.488/5
