4.13/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours hazy yellow with a decent white head great retention. Spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Sweet melon, white grape, pineapple, pretty sweet mostly citrus nose.

Taste - The taste shows a little more depth, while still mostly sweet tropical fruit there is some bitter citrus peel and a little grapefruit a well. Pineapple and mango the melon comes out well again. I feel the Azacca comes out well, admittedly I am less familiar with the other 2 hops.

Feel - Light side of medium nice carbonation a touch slick at first but a light dry finish.

Overall - Well done IPA really easy drinking pretty clean finish.

4.5/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into a duvel tulip to a hazy golden yellow topped by a dense and rocky two finger white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with excellent lacing
S: Smells of juicy citrus and tropical fruits with some slight sweetness on the nose.
T: Taste is huge tropical fruits with some citrus zest along with a slight malty sweetness in the background. Most of the flavor on this one is just fresh juicy citrus and tropical fruits though. On the swallow there's some slight bitterness but mostly just tropical fruit and citrus zest with some lingering juicy hops on the finish.
M: This beer is on the lighter side of things in body but it is not watery. Carbonation is effervescent without being over the top and the beer has a refreshing finish that is slightly oily from all the hops.
O: Overall this is a really nice hazy IPA that stands up to the best of them. It isn't as abrasive as some of the other beers in the hazy IPA genre and it also doesn't come across as young either. Just a well executed and delicious beer. Complexity on this one is pretty solid as well from the multiple hop varietals. One to try and one I'd like to see come back.
