Where distributed: Abomination Brewing distributes to select states.

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden-light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. White head; trace lacing. Looks like orange juice. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Blend of dank/resinous, stone fruit peach/mango, and oaty malts. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, more resinous up front. Transitions to a resinous and stone fruit blend, and this 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 IPA. I enjoy most resinous beers, and add this one to the list. Stone fruit otherwise plays a good supporting role. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.263/5
