I have wanted this for so long!
Pours into a smallish tulip-shaped challice. It's very thick and very orange, almost pulpy, like cider.
Smells of thick hops--rich citrus with big nodes of orange and grapefruit--along with fresher fruit nodes. Were this named something different, I wouldn't have recognized this fruitiness as mango per se, and probably would have described it more generically as "tropical."
The tropical fruitiness tastes fresh, and meshes very well with the more bitter fruit nodes from the hops. The effect is really tasty, but the beer itself is as thick as syrup and it gets cloyingly sweet after a while. 10 ounces is the right amount.
This is a dessert beer, for sure. Well worth trying and wonderfully brewed but a bit too sweet for drinking more than occasionally.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a 10 oz. goblet glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep and slightly hazy amber orange with a little ruby red. Moderate amount of bubbles. Decent two fingers of off white head that slowly fade into a thin layer. Good amount of lacing sticks to the glass.
Smell: Huge vibrant aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Big hints of mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and oranges. Hints of honey and a little candied sugar. Also some bready malts in the background. Smells fairly sweet and very citrusy on the nose.
Taste: A very citrus forward and fairly sweet taste. Good taste of mango, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit, and even some honeydew. Also some hints of sugar and a little honey. Some bready caramel malts and earthy hops linger in the background. Lots of fresh citrus although the bitterness is fairly light for such a big citrus forward IPA.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy and somewhat sticky. Sweet but finishes somewhat dry. Very smooth.
Overall: A very interesting and tasty take on a IPA. Very big fruity taste that achieves a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness.

Big thanks goes out to MBrausen for sending this one down for myself and caSSino to tick (well me to tick...). First beer I've had since my accident on 11/11/11! Reviewed live. Served from growler into a NoDa Brewing snifter. Pours hazy bright orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is comprised of sweet malt, mango, pine, caramel, fruit hop, and pine hop. The flavor is of sweet malt, mango, pine, caramel, fruit, fruit hop, and pine hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This was a great way to start back drinking. The mango is definitely present and makes a nice balanced flavor with the hops. An easy drinker that I suggest all beer lovers try to get on their palate.
