What's on the Can: "Snow Storm Hazy IPA is a seriously dank blizzard of haze with mountains of Mosaic. Prepare your taste buds for an avalanche of pure Mosaic hops with notes of tropical deliciousness and stone fruit. This brew is sure to leave you with warm feelings and a radically soft finish."

Hops: Mosaic.

Appearance (5%): Initially poured mostly clear golden into a pint glass, but with sediment at the bottom, the pour eventually becomes hazy. Frothy white head and some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing tropical citrus and stone fruit. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Starts slightly dank/resiny, then intense tropical citrus and stone fruit with complementing malt backbone. Aftertaste continues with the tropical citrus and stone fruit. Very refreshing. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class IPA. All of the tropical juiciness that I crave, with a very reasonable price. The refreshing experience makes me want to drink this all day. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.675/5
