REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden into a pint glass. Frothy white head and trace lacing on the glass. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Very tropical, getting notes of passion fruit, pineapple, and stone fruit. Loving it. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Same as the nose, mostly refreshing, tropical qualities all around. Getting more of a citrus experience on the back end. Extremely drinkable and dangerous. I'd pair it with the usual, traditional bar food. 4.25/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Slightly dry on the tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Another new brewery for me to try, and another awesome first experience. I'd eventually love to try a Double IPA version of this; that could have world-class potential. The price may be on the steep side at $9.39 for a 22 oz. bomber, but if you're an IPA lover, don't let that deter you from trying this. 4.25/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.325/5
