look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pours a deep amber gold with a generous off white head Pretty beer and clear.
S: sourdough bread and mango, with some herbal notes. Smell is a winner here, more fruit than is revealed on the palate.
T. Initial malty fruity sweetness, which dries up quickly leaving a astringent bitterness. The lingering bitterness on the finish is what holds this back from a higher score.
M. Medium bodied, nice carbonation level.
O. Above average IPA but not in the same elite class with some others.
