Appearance (5%): Pours hazy, unfiltered golden into a pint glass. White head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing passion fruit aroma. It even has that concentrated aura, as advertised. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Lovely citrus aftertaste. Best way I can otherwise describe it is a slightly easier drinking version of Block 15 Sticky Hands. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): A good American Pale Ale. The one plus here is certainly the passion fruit aroma and aftertaste, but for me it doesn't stand out much more than that. This one smells better than it really was for taste. A slight letdown at the end of the day. 3.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.863/5
