Appearance (5%): Pours hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, tons of sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; trace lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Blend of dank/resinous citrus, peach, and berry, with oaty malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, balanced resinous and fruity throughout. Assertive citrus, berry, and peach blend. Aftertaste has wonderful citrus. Extremely refreshing. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. I enjoy most resinous beers, and add this one to the list. Stone fruit otherwise plays a good supporting role. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.575/5
