look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour: a nice light brown brew with a white thin beer head.

smell: is a light sweet smell like fruit and a light pine.

taste: i get a lot of fruit some mango and peach is very light but still there along with the hops and the malts all blended into each other.

Overall: Its drink also being 7.0% abv its a little more simple then most. Id recommend this for someone trying to step up their ipa taste this is the 2nd step.

I've updated my rating to reflect my several experiences with this beer. The first time I had it in the bottle and it was very good and perhaps more fresh. I've since had a few bottles that weren't very good and some fresh cans that were just good. Still a good IPA but not worth the price.
