A: Very clean and golden... well filtered, with just a half-finger of head to top it.
S + T: I don't know if mango would be the first aroma or flavor that I would mention. Nonetheless, it is a very pleasant fruity aroma and the same follows through in the taste. Sweet, fruity esters--rather vinous, as well. The mango comes out a little more as a distinct flavor while the beer warms. The highlight here is the chili. The sweetness followed by a sharp pepper note is fabulous. The balance here is very nice, and I think that it is the real quality of this beer.
M + O: Medium bodied, appropriately. A nice, slick finish, with that peppery warmth. While it's not a mind-blowing experience, it's a well-made beer, and thoroughly enjoyable. This is a solid Founders offering, though I would love it if it were a more regular offering and didn't have to life up to any sort of limited edition hype, which I think hurts this specific release a little.

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.
