Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Orange-mango creamiscle was my first thought. Pleasing citrus experience. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Tropical forward, citrus and stone fruit. Has that creamsicle vibe to me. More citrus and mango on the aftertaste. Typical oaty malt akin to a NE-style IPA. Very refreshing. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Wonderful tropical here. Not sure if that's truly a creamsicle experience (maybe others have an idea as to what it could be if it isn't), but whatever it is, I am a fan. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.463/5
