Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tons of pineapple and sweet-tart citrus. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): More malt-forward with oats and some octane. While the aftertaste has good citrus notes, the octane upstages, Feels like 9% (at least). 3.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied; good carbonation. Velvety and some juiciness. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An awesome Double IPA. Probably more octane-forward than I normally would like, but the citrus did come through at points. For me, better on the nose, though. 3.75/5
