REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Pours mostly clear golden into a pint glass. White head. Not what I usually expect when thinking of New England-style hazy IPAs. 4/5
Smell (25%): Lovely tropical, mainly pineapple, grapefruit, and other citrus. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Soft tropical from start to finish. Pineapple and other citrus making me a happy panda. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Extremely juicy. 4.75/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. While I expected this one to be hazier, everything else delivered for me. Huge fan of the tropical here. Also loving the cheap price here (at least compared with other beers I usually get). 4.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.55/5
