REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head, good lacing. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Soft tropical citrus and stone fruit, with complementing oaty malt. 4.25/5
Taste (40%): Pleasing soft tropical citrus and stone fruit mix, including tangerine, mango, peach, and pineapple. Citrus is more prominent on aftertaste. Very refreshing. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5
Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. Big fan of the tropical presence here, and the aftertaste packs an extra wave of fruity bliss. 4.5/5
