Poured into a snifter
A Nice bright orange color. 1/2 finger head which dissipated almost instantly. A small ring of foam remained throughout. Almost no lacing
S surprisingly less than enticing. Some fruit juice; apricot maybe ... I wouldn't have guessed this to be a mango beer had I not known.
T wow. A mango explosion! Wouldn't have guessed this given the nose. This is one of the juiciest beers I've ever had. The mango hits you in the middle of the mouth and then the heat. The taste is not complex, its a mango juice bomb with heat on the back end. I did notice the habanero came and went with each drink. Some drinks were very hot others not so much. The mango lingers for just a bit, the heat lingers throughout.
M perfect for the style. Refreshing to an extent in spite of the heat
O a very well crafted beer. The flavors taste completely authentic, not artificial in the least.Again, its hardly complex but the flavors that are present are excellent. As for the heat, its just right, anymore would be too much. Glad I jumped thru the hoops to get this one. Well done Founders.

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.
