Pours orange with some amber hues and a bit of haze. Head is about one finger and has decent retention.

Smell is great, lots of citrus, some mango a good piney backbone. Malt smells somewhat sweet through the citrus tang.

Taste follows the nose with citrus flavors laced over a moderate piney bitterness. Caramel malt is semi sweet and well balanced with the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied, mild to moderate carbonation. Perfect for an ipa.

Overall well balanced tasty ipa.
