Appearance (5%): Poured hazy 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%): Predominantly sweet tropical citrus. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Tropical forward with complementing malts at the start, then a burst of tropical grapefruit and some pineapple into the aftertaste. Tropical aftertaste and very refreshing. 4.5/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. As with many New England-style beers, big fan of the tropical citrus. That extra wave of grapefruit and pineapple makes this that much more memorable. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.525/5
