Pours a crystal clear straw color with honey highlights. The head is short and dense, settles into a light cap. Some yeast floaters floating about.

The aroma is light. There is a slight grain note. There is also a sweetness from what I assume is the mango. It is a fruity smell but not sure it smells like mango.

The taste is of a sugary mango. Quite fruity, nice ripe flavor. The malt is light and slightly bready. Not sure if I am picking up some wheat. The habaneros provide heat in the finish but no vegetal flavors, which is nice.

Moderate feel with prickly carbonation. Quite sweet on the palate. A bit sticky and syrupy. Nice heat in the finish.

The beer is a bit too sweet for my liking. However, Founders has done the best job I have seen adding the hot peppers appropriately without adding a vegetable flavor. It is a nice amount of heat.

This beer will likely be a Love/Hate for most... It's incredibly sweet, fruity, light and well... Mango(y) upfront. Then as it makes it's way down the gullet, it gets rather spicy, I grew up on spice
y food and it is rather spicy... It has a fair amount of kick! For many it may be too spicy... For me I can handle the actual spice, however it doesn't sit well. I want a refreshing drink. However, it really is amazing how this brew is literally is #JekyllandHyde it's a tale of two stories... It's a novelty beer, one done very well~

I think this one is getting better with age. Such a nice and warm finish. Lots of mango flavor from start to finish as well. Aged quite nicely so far.
