Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered beer. Frothy white head, trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing and abundant sweet tropical. Tangerine, mango, passion fruit, and more. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Tropical from start to finish, with bitterness held wonderfully in check. More tangerine and other citrus on the aftertaste. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy on the tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): A world-class IPA. Loads of tropical fruit here make this one a big hit with me, but the tidal wave of citrus on the aftertaste gave this one bonus points. I just wish this was available on a more regular basis. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.713/5
