Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light golden-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head. Some lacing at the top of the glass. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Balanced resin with tropical citrus and stone fruit (peach/mango). 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Like Sonic Brew, the tropical starts taking over after the initial wave. Aftertaste is mostly stone fruit. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Preferring this one over the Sonic Brew due to more tropical with any resinous qualities. Again, bonus points for the Street Fighter references. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.25/5
