Appearance (5%): Pours hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head; trace lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Lovely blend of tropical mango, papaya, and citrus, with complementing malt and dank notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Assertive blend of tropical, dank, and complementing malt. Tropical included papaya, citrus, and mango. Everything works. Flavor continues into the aftertaste. For 8.5%, it drinks very nicely. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied; some carbonation. Very juicy - and even a bit pulpy - with slight dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Lovely fruity experience which drank very easy for the stated ABV. That ABV might sneak up on you over time. Two thumbs up from me! 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.5/5
