look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a deep yellow/orange. Very hazy and pretty much opaque. A two finger or white head that slowly fades to a small lacing.

Smell: clear fruity hop aroma. Ranges from citrus to tropical fruits. Not quite juicy but very flavorful. Sweet to grainy malt background.

Taste: opens up with citrus mixed with tropical fruit noted. Maybe some grapefruit, but not too bitter, mango, papaya. Low resiny hop character. Malt background comes through with a honey like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: medium body. Too low of a bitterness. And not quite juicy enough.

Overall: this beer has a lot of good flavors but falls short in the mouthfeel. Needs a little bit of a bite to it or additional juicy hop characteristics. All in all it's nothing out of this world. Just a well done and good beer that is way to hard to find and sought after

Some beers deserve the reputation they get. This is one of them. I was lucky to get a fresh bottle and it did not disappoint.

Appearance- Perfect golden/amber color. Slight head, nice lacing. And I have to add the label is pretty cool.

Smell- Amazing. The small was outstanding. Citrus on a canvas of floral hops.

Taste- Crisp citrus start, well balanced with intense hop, and a nice finish that doesn't leave a bitter after taste. The closest think I can compare it to in my area is GL Chillwave, which is a double IPA, but has the citrus punch (I find chillwave to have maybe a bit to much lemon/lime flavor).

Mouthfeel- medium to light body.
