Mango Mama pours a murky, milky, muddled deep orange. No lacing, no retention. It's really unattractive... but it DOES look like what's to come. It looks like mango puree was poured in and swirled around.
Aroma is a big punch of mango, although it shows off at least initially as mango, guava, pineapple, nectarines and stone fruit. But the fruit is above all else, with a bit of citrus or pine at the fringe.
On the palate, this is punchy with that mango fruit that is cut off by a ragged, back half bitterness, full of resin and pine. It's super drinkable and enjoyable, a nice medium bodied brew that delivers on the mango, finishes dry and lightly bitter. It doesn't, however, layer on the flavor, or leap entirely out of the glass.
I really enjoyed it, it's unique, it actually does a good job of allowing the Masala Mama to show up in the back half, however... it's just Good. Not great. Really enjoyable as a regular treat at my local brewpub, absolutely worth trying (it's very unique)... just a shade short of a truly great beer.

This has got to be the best beer on the planet.
Looks like a standard IPA, light orange with a slight haze and is topped by a small head.
The nose reeks of powerful exotic tropical fruits - mango, peaches, kiwi, grapefruit, pineapple, oranges. So good.
Taste does not let me down as all of these fruits transpire in my palate. I've never had such a complex IPA that brings out dynamic tropical flavor. Most are just grapefruity but not this versatile. Thankful to have had this. Easily better than heady and Pliny!
