3.74/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

12 FL OZ can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a hazy amber/orange color and is topped with a couple inches of tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

It smells like it has been of the shelf for six months but was canned five weeks ago. It has a stale hop aroma with some malt. As it warms a little I get some medical aroma with with citrus.

The taste is better. There is citrus with grapefruit in the finish.

Full mouthfeel

The taste was pretty good. It just has a stale hop smell.

Canned on 9/17/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden; fluffy white head that falls leaving nice bubbly retention and solid lacing. The aromas have a nice amount of orange. Some tropical fruit in the background. Subtle floral notes. Mild hints of caramel. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. More orange leading the way along with some peach and apricot. It's slightly sticky. Solid malt backbone. Mild spiciness. Some black pepper in the mix. Nice hop flavors and solid hop flavors. It finishes juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol goes unnoticed for the most part, but it does drink "big". Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, fluffy, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a pretty nice DIPA. It has alot going on, but everything works and comes together. Right off the bat I didn't think I was going to love it, but I quickly started to enjoy it. Well done. Nice addition to the Mandala series. I really like it and it can even be better than my "numerical score" might indicate.
