Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, virtually no lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Balanced dank citrus and stone fruit. Getting a lot of peach and pineapple. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Slight dank to start, then assertive peach-citrus flavors throughout while dank blends in wonderfully. Getting pineapple, orange, and grapefruit. Full-flavored and delicious. 4.75/5

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

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class IPA. Huge fan of the dank peach/pineapple combination. The right amount of dank and fruit. I haven't heard much about Nectaron hops, but when used this way, it's a huge home run. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.688/5
