Taste (40%): Guava from start to finish. Clean, delicious, and refreshing. 4.25/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Some dry tongue, fairly juicy. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An awesome IPA. Ex Novo's Eliot Guava release is overall a success. Glad to have enjoyed this while fresh. I do prefer their regular Eliot IPA at the end of the day, though. 4.25/5
