Released a month or two back.

A: Pours a clear reddish-amber. Big frothy white head. Head fades slowly, surprisingly good retention. Nice fluffy tufts of lacing too.

S: Sweet mango and a surprising amount of habanero - both in vegetal sense and the heat sense. Bottle states just a "hint" but it's certainly a big part of the aroma.

T: Oh yeah. Loaded with sweet mango. From start to finish but mainly up front. Surprising habanero, mild vegetal aspect that is mostly overpowered by the mango. But quite a bit of heat starting in the middle and building to the finish and into the aftertaste. Grainy bread in there but mostly covered up. Mild vegetal habanero hiding in the aftertaste as well, it's at its strongest here (or maybe the mango is at its weakest). Get almost a big of melon in the aftertaste too. Belly warming, both from the alcohol and the heat.

M: Medium-heavy, sweet and burning!

O: Wow, the scores kinda scared me but this is delicious. It's exactly what it says it is. Lots of sweet mango, balanced by lots of habanero heat. Sure it's not much of a purist beer but it is very tasty, very sweet and very spicy. Flavors balance each other out nicely. Surprisingly good heat since most pepper beers are either ridiculous and over the top or have almost no heat at all. This is a great middle ground. I really enjoyed it.

Reviewed from memory from 4 days ago.

Poured a fairly clear golden copper with a foamy ivory head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Tropical notes of mango and pineapple were contrasted by sweet and spicy peppery notes.

In flavor, the mango really came to life. It was a pleasant, juicy contrast to the fruity, spicy pepper flavor. The heat was still a bit too much. Malt was somewhat thin, and lacked sweetness to counter.

Got a bottle of this. Think I'll lay it down another couple years. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces, though.
