REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; trace lacing. 4.25/5
Smell (25%): Tons of tropical sweet citrus, including orange and grapefruit. 4.75/5
Taste (40%): Smooth tropical citrus from start to finish. A bit of malt also towards the front but then the tropical takes over. Getting orange, tangerine, and perhaps some grapefruit. Very refreshing and drinkable. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; some carbonation. Very juicy. 4.5/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Pleasing and consistent sweet tropical throughout will by itself get a high rating. Price is on par with similar beers these days. Totally worth getting. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.563/5
