Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, white head. Trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): More floral or yeast-forward, with some citrus to complement. 3.75/5

Taste (40%): More balanced at the start, then blossoms with a good amount of tropical. Slight, soft citrusy aftertaste. 4/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome IPA. I basically got this one for the kickass name (legal geek here). Initially, I thought the beer had too much of a floral presence, but as it warmed up a bit, I got to enjoy more of the citrus tropical. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.975/5
