Appearance (5%): Poured slightly hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment suspended in the beer. White head; good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Berry and ripe citrus combination with complementing slight dank. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, Amazing tropical ripe citrus and berry at the forefront. Controlled citrus peel comes out afterward. Citrus and berry aftertaste. Very refreshing. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding Double IPA. It drinks far easier than the stated 8% ABV, probably more like 6% in my book. Ritual Colors is a very refreshing brew that can be enjoyed any time of the year. 4.5/5
