On tap at Town Hall Tap. This beer arrives a hazy orange-red color. The head is half an inch in height, and lingers a while. The aroma is of mango, grapefruit, and oranges. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with some pine resin coming through. The mango characteristic in both the flavor and aroma is subdued enough to not lend a lot to the beer, but strong enough to take away a lot of the great qualities of Masala Mama. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a velvety texture. Overall, I can quite disappointed with this beer, and will most likely pass on it next time.

Growler

Thanks for opening this growler, Rich!

Slightly hazed golden orange and gold with a thin near-white head. Leaves spots of lacing down the glass.

The aroma is my favorite part of this beer. This is intensely tropical and fruity: lots of grapefruit, orange, and a bit of mango, unsurprisingly.

The flavor is relatively high in bitterness surprisingly after the incredibly sweet and fruity aroma. Amongst the bitterness is tropical fruit character and a bit of sweetness.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

A wonderfully aromatic beer and overall a very good IPA.

Growler generously shared by Cam.

Pour is a bit hazy, dark orange with a big white head. Looks good. The nose is precisely two things - mango malt and big bitter hops. One almost needs a reminder of mango to get a picture of it - there is an almost hint of mintyness that is best summarized as that unique mango bite. Smells fantastic and really works with the hops. One of my favorite smelling hoppy beers of many hoppy beers sampled throughout the last year. The taste is really good, but doesn't come around quite as well. Unlike the nose, I feel like the taste doesn't meld together as nicely. Basically, it is only really good. Strong flavors of mango and that mango bite cover the maltiness of Masala Mama and sit distant from the largely pure bitter hops. It winds up not mattering that much, but it does keep the beer from a perfect taste grade. I think this could be a 5.0 with a more tropical hop profile, which would meld the flavors together a touch better. I wanted a juiciness to the hop bite that didn't quite come through. I am being picky though. The mouthfeel is nice on this beer with good carbonation and a good body. I could kill a growler of this all by myself with no issue. This is darn good stuff.
