3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is amber in color with a creamy off-white head.
S: Smells just as much like peach as it does like mango. Very sweet and fruity with a bit of citrus hop character. No real malt or much other than the incredibly dominant fruit aroma.
T: The flavor has tons of mango, but still a hint of peach and apricot. Light grapefruit hop flavors find their way through the intense fruit flavors. A touch of sweet malt to it, maybe a little pine.
M: Medium bodied with low but smooth carbonation.
O: Kind of a waste of IPA as the hops don’t really come through much, but not bad either way.
