What's on the Website: "We might have over juiced this one. The focus of this addicting Hazy IPA was to bring out all the tropical juicy hop flavors we could while keeping the bitterness in check and balanced. Huge whirlpool additions and multiple Dry Hopping did the trick. It drinks just like fruit juice... but better.

Where distributed: 10 Barrel Brewing ships to select states.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden-orange into a pint glass. White head, virtually no lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing, soothing tropical citrus, stone fruit, and melon notes. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Juicy citrus from start to finish. Dankness mixed in towards the beginning. Aftertaste is pulpy citrus, perhaps some berry notes. 4/5

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

Overall (20%): An awesome to excellent IPA. Finally got my hands on this one and it delivered as expected. I'm a fan of the citrus but didn't think there would be as much dank in this. Still, the tropical experience is the clear star. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.1/5
