REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light lime green into a pint glass. Lots of carbonation / tiny bubbles. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Citrus-lemon-lime, very similar to Mountain Dew. 4.75/5
Taste (40%): Drinks as an alcoholic Mountain Dew. Follows the nose, refreshing. Well executed and could drink all day. 4.75/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; significant carbonation. Silky and velvety feel on the tongue makes the citrus latch on even longer. 4.75/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class hard soda. All hard sodas in the Not Your Father's lineup have been successful, and this is another that I highly recommend. If you love Mountain Dew, this is a must-get (assuming you're of age to drink this). It probably won't be long before this is included in NYF variety packs. 4.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.738/5
