look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy orange amber with with an offwhite thick head.

Aroma is strong mango and orange.

Taste is more of that tropical mango with a little bit of pithy bitterness. Light on body though.

A: The beer is hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that faded away, leaving lots of specks of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of mangos and cantaloupe melons are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of tropical fruits such as mangos and papayas along with notes of melons, which become much stronger as the beer warms up. A light amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is very fruity and becomes balanced with flavors of tropical fruits and melons once it warms up.

Serving type: can

Tall can, "FOR THE BIRDS 9/20/17" on the bottom

Cool, bird themed can sticker label, with some info about keeping migrating birds safe

Pours typical looking hazed amber, super fine bubble faint fields of stick left behind, as well as a coating film, and thin collar...quality looking brew.

Sniff is mildly of ripe tropicals

Smooth, easy drinking and tasty creation with more ripe fruit, melon and pineapple coming to mind...

Better then decent, but nothing really over the top amazing...which I guess makes this one well worth a try, just don't expect to be blown away
