REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Pours hazy light orange into a pint glass. White head. Some lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Mostly tropical; mango and citrus orange/tangerine. 4.25/5
Taste (40%): Soft tropical mango and orange/tangerine; pleasing tropical citrus bitterness hangs around through the aftertaste. Drinks very easy. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, some carbonation. More on the syrupy side with some juicy qualities, some dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. I probably will put this one in between We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat and Not Too Brite. Good tropical overall and inviting tropical. Recommended for hazy IPA lovers. 4.25/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.363/5
