look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Pours a light orange/slightly golden, nice finger of light tan/off white colored head, very good lacing. A thin layer covers the top and climbs up the side of the glass meeting the lace.
S - A really nice combination of heavy grapefruit/zesty citrusy hops and a wee bit of resinous hop aroma. Some bready caramel malts, slightly spiced, slight alcohol astringency.
T - Not incredibly bitter up front, but very very citrusy sweet. The sweetness quickly transitions into a more resinous/spiced hop taste and the dry bitterness comes in closer to the finish and leaves a mild but enjoyable dry bitter aftertaste. Really just a progression of citrusy explosions to spiced/resinous hops with a dry bitter aftertaste. Kind of simple, but very good! As it warms up the caramel sweetness comes more into play and the spiced resin subsides.
M - Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation (medium, maybe a little less). Very refreshing, as I find most bitter IPAs.
O - $4.49?? Are you serious!? BY FAR the best $4.49 22 I've ever had, plus a lot more. Very bitter/sweet/drinkable. At this price point... it's going to be a regular in my fridge! Tremendous value

appearance; hazy orange, evident carbonation, crazy head with good retention.
smell; tropical fruit notes are off the hook. very strong aroma of guava, passion fruit and pineapple. with a bit of hoppy pine in there as well.
taste; sweet tropical fruit, the guava and passion fruit are there, backed up by malt and then a ltlle bit of hop bitterness to finish.
mouthfeel; medium body, slightly creamier then excepted, alot of bubbles.
overall; really underated beer in my opinion, great experience, great value, would easily buy again.
