Where distributed: Pariah Brewing beers are generally found in California.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Resinous grapefruit and stone fruit mix. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; more resinous up front, then transitions to pleasing pulpy citrus and stone fruit. Aftertaste continues the soft citrus flavors. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent Double IPA. Resin tends to take over just slightly, but eventually the citrus comes into play. Not sure if LeBron James has had this, but if he's a beer lover, hopefully he gets his hands on one. Starts assertive and finishes strong, much like James would do on the basketball court. I personally prefer Mamba Mode from last year, though. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.288/5
