Appearance (5%): Poured hazy orange into a tulip glass. White head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Lots of tropical. Mix of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and passion fruit. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows nose. Some resiny or bitterness in middle of drinking experience. Aftertaste has burst of tangerine and other citrus. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium bodied, good carbonation. Some dry tongue, but there is a good juicy feel as well. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. HUB jumped into the hazy IPA game, and they scored a major hit with this tropical beauty. Very drinkable and I'm happy I scored a 4-pack; while all their locations had this on draft, there were only a limited supply of cans at their SE Powell location. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.413/5
