Appearance: A medium golden brown with a small head that laces lightly down the glass.

Smell: Hoppy with hints of flora and fruit.  Mango especially comes out in the smell and has a very nice sweetness to it.

Taste: Robust with sweetness and a definite perfume-esque  taste caused by the hops.  A light bitterness which disappears quickly.  Apricots and vanilla emerge soon into the drink.  There is a lasting aftertaste where hops stay strong, and a light caramel essence.  Very complex.

Mouthfeel: Zesty crispness with an mellow overall coating of the mouth.

Overall: Best IPA I’ve had. Complex flavors and terrific smells coupled with a smooth and satiating feeling.

Grade: A+
