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%): Mostly tropical citrus and stone fruit, with complementing resinous notes and oaty malts. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Tropical-forward. Getting stone fruit, tangerine, and orange. Resin works here and doesn't overpower. Complementing malt. Tropical citrus continues into the aftertaste. 4.75/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; good carbonation. Extremely juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.75/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class IPA. I enjoy most resinous beers, and add this one to the list. Stone fruit otherwise plays a good supporting role. 4.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.675/5
