Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head. Trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical, peach, mandarin orange, and other citrus. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Slightly malt-forward at the start, but eventually a lovely complement with the juicy tropical. Soft tropical aftertaste. 4/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome to excellent IPA. To me, the aroma was a notch higher than the flavor, but still a tasty hazy IPA for science. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.163/5
