Appearance - Pours crystal clear and golden yellow in color with a white, 2-finger head. Fair retention gives way to a broken layer of suds with a nice ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Predominant mango aroma, along with touches of orange and pine.

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange and mango dominate upfront, but there's a distinct pine resin undertone throughout. Malt bill is clean and adds sweetness, but without a truly defining flavor. Finish is a nice orange zest character.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with fair, tingly carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

Overall - One of the better IPL's I've had to date. For the price I paid, it's well worth a few more trips "into the Fathom".

Poured into a becker a clear rich burnt orange infused golden with a great looking large fluffy white crown that settled slowly leaving alot of broken lace behind.Aromas were yeasty with overripe citrus fruits and a bit toasted bread,a hint of sweet booze as well.Flavors of somewhat sweet doughy bread with a big shot the overripe citrusy hops,again the yeast plays a big role.I really liked this hopped lager,it actually seems bigger than what it is.

Tap @ Hamilton's. This is not the first IPL I've had, but its definitely the best. Pours clear gold with a one-finger white head. Moderate lacing. Sweet, floral hop aroma. Lots of pine and lemongrass, less of the grapefruit/citrus. Sharp, crisp resin bite up front. Mellows a little into a grapefruit-lemon-orange peel sweetness. The lager back enhances the West Coast IPA feel, giving it a sweet finish. I could drink this all night its so smooth. Very well done.
