Appearance (5%): Pours slightly hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head; some lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Sweet pineapple, grapefruit, and other citrus. Lovely complementing malts, especially considering the 11% ABV tag. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Blend of sweet tropical citrus fruit (pineapple, grapefruit, etc.) and malts from the start, but the tropical ultimately wins out. Very refreshing. No hoppiness or bitterness. No octane detected, extremely dangerous since this apparently is 11%. Magically delicious. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied; some carbonation. Extremely juicy with virtually no dry tongue. 4.75/5

Overall (20%): A world-class Triple IPA. Crazy how drinkable this one is. No octane, lots of tropical, and the malt complements ideally. When it comes around again, I highly recommend people get this one. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.738/5
