REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment suspended in the beer that came from the bottom of the can. Frothy white head, good lacing. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Balanced tropical, floral, and complementing oaty malts. 4/5
Taste (40%): Mostly tropical grapefruit from start to finish. Has some bitterness but somewhat held in check. Complementing malt backbone that doesn't overpower. Aftertaste has grapefruit-like qualities, but also lingering bitterness. 4/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An awesome Double IPA. Perhaps a tad more bitter than what I usually expect from a NE-style IPA. At times, I'll get good juicy notes, while others it's a healthy dose of bitterness. Regardless, this is one I will happily drink. 4/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.05/5
