look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look - poured into a pint glass with a slight white head that went away fairly quick. Golden Amber hazy color with great lacing.
Smell - floral citrus hoppy scent with a hint of malts.
Taste - floral citrus hop taste with a great toasty malt backbone and a bitter taste on the tongue.
Feel - great medium carbonation with a crisp medium body.
Overall - fantastic well balanced ipa.

First attempt at a formal review

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass, limbo ipa glass to be precise
A: Copper, dark bronze, very hazy almost non translucent with a thin head, very little lacing left on glass
S: Fruity and tropical, mango, citrus, and floral
T: Strong fruity and floral hops with hints of pine and malt, ending with slightly bitter and lingering fruit aftertaste
M: Slight carbonation, dry
O: Very excellent single ipa, I have tried more then should have in the past month or so. Very drinkable low abv at 6.5, perfect blend of hop character with floral notes and slight bitter kick, enjoyed very much, first I've had from Dark Horse, can't wait to try what else they have to offer.
