Appearance (5%): Pours mostly clear golden into a pint glass. White head; trace lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Sweet citrus, mix of lemon and stone fruit. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose, any malts complement and remain subtle. Very clean IPA with citrus lemon-grapefruit aftertaste. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; good carbonation. Refreshing with some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Refreshing citrus is the best way to describe this one. Perhaps a bit diluted on flavor, but it's perfect for warm weather (which I know it is not by the time this blog post goes live). But since it came out in summer time, it was a great time to release this one. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.325/5
