look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours an opaque shade of electric yellow with a frothing two finger head of off white foam that laces the glass very well. Aroma is slightly weak, some bitter grapefruit and peach. Flavor is mostly dried pineapple + apricot candy with an assertive, slightly boozy and prickly pine sap heat on the back end. Some floral, pithy grapefruit and orange zest rounds it out on the finish with very understated hints of sweet mango. Slightly bitter/waxy and dry. Mouthfeel is luscious, thick and well carbonated. Hearty and rich, but very easy to drink. Overall I think this is a wonderful AIPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque yellow gold color with 2 healthy fingers of bright white head. The head leaves a crown of lacing before slowly dissipating into a thick blanket of foam.

The aroma brings notes of mango, pineapple, guava, and melon. There's a hint of grainy malt before a wave of rind and dankness on the back end.

The flavor is very sweet up front. There's a ton of candied orange, mango, pineapple, honey, and ripe honeydew melon. The finish is slightly rindy and subtly bitter. Not much balance here.

The feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Creamy and soft, with a slightly sticky finish. That sounds gross.

Overall, this is a solid all-around beer. It's very fruity and if you like "juice bombs" you'll definitely like this one. It's a bit too sweet and unbalanced for me, but it's still a drinkable beer.
