Smell (25%): Dank hoppy citrus with assertive complementing malt. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Slight dank hop with citrus to start. Burst of citrus continues into the aftertaste, likely citrus peel, orange and grapefruit. Citrus-malt engulfs the mouth. Full of flavor. 4.75/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding Double IPA. Big fan of the citrus, especially the lovely aftertaste. Any dank hop is not very assertive and only complements the citrus. Another top-notch brew from Ex Novo. 4.5/5
