Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head; some lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Copious tropical citrus and stone fruit. Possibly getting some guava notes as well. Complementing oaty malts as usual. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Slight resinous touch with blissful tropical citrus and mango stone fruit. Tropical engulfs the mouth. Wonderful citrus and some peachy notes on the aftertaste. Addictive. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class Double IPA. To me, better than Demonic Haze and another shining example of why LCB has become one of my favorite breweries. Tropical is the star. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.688/5
