Appearance (5%): Poured slightly hazy golden into a pint glass. Some sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, almost no lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Good blend of earthy hop, dank, and citrus peel. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Slightly hoppy/dank to start, transitioning into a blend of sweet citrus and citrus peel. Citrus stays strong into the aftertaste. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; good carbonation. Trace dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. I enjoyed the hoppy start, but the powerful sweet citrus was the best part. Bonus points for the Cobra Kai reference. Throw in some lovely artwork, and Eagle Fang is an overall home run. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.613/5
