3.65/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

APP- Golden in color with slight haze. I think it may due to non-filtration. Nice head lasts less then a minute..leaves a nice ring.

Smell- Very tropical/mango/citrus aroma. Sweet malt undertones. Slightly alcohol aroma.

Taste- Pungent tropical hop flavor upfront. Takes a second for the hops to mellow and the malt to come through. Not surprising for the style but I was expecting something more mellow based on aroma.

O/D- Not sure the date on the bottle I had but can't wait to have some fresh. (Founders soon coming to Vt) There was something in the finish I didn't care for. But will give it another shot soon.
