Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment at the bottom of the can. Off-white head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical pineapple, grapefruit, and stone fruit. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Fairly assertive tropical pineapple and grapefruit from the start. Citrus bitterness is there and lingers on the tongue into the aftertaste. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. While FTW has its strong points, I still prefer the WTF I had a few months back. I still am a fan of the wonderful tropical flavors here, though. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.25/5
