Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White to off-white head. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical (peach, mango, papaya, and apricot) with some creamy dank/resiny. 4/5

Taste (40%): Creamy malt and dank to start, tropical stone fruit then swoops in. Aftertaste brings another wave of tropical, mixed with creamy dank/resin. 4/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, some carbonation. Silky, creamy, and juicy, with some dryness afterwards. 4/5

Overall (20%): A solid to awesome IPA. I liked Mystery Cloud's tropical stone fruit flavors here. The malt aspect may have overpowered the tropical a bit much for me, but it's all personal preference. Again, kudos on the label artwork. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.013/5
