look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled on 10/02. Consumed on 10/30.
A - Golden orange with moderate carbonation. Gentle pour yielded less than a finger of white head. Clear/no cloudiness or sediment. Light irregular lacing.
S - Very nice. Crisp, easily identifiable scent. Pink grapefruit with a hint of orange. Reminded me of a Double Trouble.
T - Pink grapefruit, orange, and mango with a mildly bitter grapefruit/onion finish. Barely discernible malt backbone, but quite appropriate for the style. Drawback is I get the dreaded onion taste in the finish, and it lingers on the tongue. I love the initial flavor, but not a fan of the finish.
M - Very nice. Carbonation perfect for this type of beer. Nice tingle on tongue and throughout mouth. Crisp and refreshing.
O - Great beer, except for the onion in the finish, which ruins it to a certain extent for me. I really appreciate the orange, mango, grapefruit mix though. Its worth a try.

Poured from 12 oz glass into large tulip glass. A slighty hazy golden ale with a finger or so of white head and minimal lacing. Aroma was a little muted. Not sure the age of the bottle I got, but it could have been on the shelf for a while. I couldn't find a date. Some citrus and pine combined with caramel. Taste was very good, but again the hops had probably faded a bit as they are not 'in your face'. Nice balance of sweet caramel and bitter hops with just a bit of citrus and pine flavor. Overall, its good but I was hoping for more from this. Its solid and I'll try it again, but hopefully a fresher bottle.
