Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden-light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. White head; some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Balance of tropical citrus and ripe stone fruit with creamy malt notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Balanced tropical, floral, and creamy malt, then finishes strong with a bigger wave of citrus tropical. Extremely refreshing. Tropical continues into the aftertaste. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. More flavor here than some other beers at the same ABV, and I liked the changing stages/waves of flavors. Nice tropical presence. 4.25/5
