Appearance (5%): Poured hazy dark copper with reddish-pinkish hue into a pint glass. Unfiltered, virtually no lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Mostly balanced citrus and stone fruit, with complementing floral hibiscus. 4/5

Taste (40%): More of a malty citrus-stone fruit experience from start to finish. Hibiscus complements and doesn't overwhelm, but it's definitely there. Citrus continues into the aftertaste. Has the bitter-tart vibe going here. 4.25/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome to excellent IPA. The tartness and floral here brought refreshing notes, but the malty experience will make you remember it's an 8% beer (without the octane). Pretty well done overall. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.138/5
