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

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".
