Where distributed: Fall Brewing generally distributes within California.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. White head. Some lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Good tropical passion fruit, lemon, and other citrus. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Slight octane at the start, but then dissipates and the tropical citrus is there. Juicy with any bitterness kept in check. To be fair, the octane does lessen after the beer warms up a little. 3.5/5

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

Overall (20%): A solid IPA. I'm pretty sure this is actually the second time I drank Radio Silence, but perhaps I just was too lazy to review it the first time around (if that was the case). The octane was a bit much here, but I did like the juiciness and the can design. 3.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.863/5
