REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden into a pint glass. White head. Trace lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Juicy, balanced-hoppy lemon-grapefruit. 4.75/5
Taste (40%): Balanced hoppy-granefruit combination from start to finish. Bitterness kept in check. Very juicy and refreshing. 4.75/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Extremely juicy with no dry tongue. 4.75/5
Overall (20%): A world-class IPA. I initially got this beer for the can artwork design (Otter Pops, anyone?), but the beer itself was personally a near-ideal blend of hops and citrus. 4.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.738/5
