Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head. Good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): More floral dank with some peach/stone fruit. 3.75/5

Taste (40%): Dank forward with peach and other stone fruit. Aftertaste brings a bit more citrus tropical. 4/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome Double IPA. If you're familiar with the old OxiClean infomercials (along many others), you might appreciate the name just as much as I do. As far as the beer goes, good flavor, maybe a bit too floral on the nose for me. Good dank notes, though. 3.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 3.938/5
