Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Some creaminess, very juicy. Trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Perhaps it was me having this after a long day of yard work, but this one really had that satisfying experience when drinking it. I know I would have enjoyed this one regardless, though. Add this one to the "recommend" list. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.588/5
