REVIEW: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 tropical fruit, including stone fruit, citrus, and melon. Fruit-forward. Complementing resinous notes and oaty malts. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Blend of resinous tropical from start to finish. Mix of stone fruit, melon, and citrus. Again, the malt and resin complement. More of a citrus peel experience detected on the aftertaste. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; good carbonation. Juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Yet another delicious brew from the New England area. Not sure when I will see the next one made through this company, but I hope to try more from them in the future. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.475/5
