look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours orange to amber with a two-finger off-white head which dissipates slowly, leaving lots of lacing.

S: West Coast all the way on this one. Big floral and grapefruit notes dominate. Definitely some mango and passionfruit in there as well. Juicy, resiny hops. Not getting a malty backbone either. Just straight up hops.

T: Taste mirrors the smell. I get floral perfume up front, but the grapefruit represented in the nose comes across sweeter in the taste. Maybe a less intensely bitter citrus like clementine or orange. Bitter grapefruit on the sides of the tongue that lingers slightly.

M: Noticeably clean mouthfeel for an IPA this intense. I don't get that tackiness on the finish that often comes with really big IPAs. I daresay it's refreshing.
