3.98/5 rDev +2.6%
Appearance: slightly hazy yellow. Full white head on the pour.
Smell: not a lot happening in the nose. Some piney, citrus notes but dulled at that. Pleasant enough.
Taste: more going here. A nice hoppy bite and an interesting "cleaner than an IPA" thing that I guess is attributable to the lagering? I guess this what an IPL is spose to taste like. Nice.
Overall: all in all an interesting and nicely done brew.

3.95/5 rDev +1.8%
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".
