REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden into a pint glass. Frothy white head with trace lacing. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Pleasing citrus grapefruit with complementing hoppy notes. 4.75/5
Taste (40%): Citrus-forward. Grapefruit and stone fruit throughout. Hoppiness is there but perfectly complements everything. Aftertaste is more citrus grapefruit. Extremely refreshing. 5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; some carbonation. Very juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): A world-class IPA. For me, a virtually ideal balance of citrus and hoppy. Memorable flavors from start to finish. I wish this was available on a more regular basis. 4.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.788/5
