look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- pours a clear and golden color with a small fizzy white head that retains shortly, eventually leaving a few patches floating on top, no lace but alcohol legs sticking around the glass

S- fresh sweet mango up front with notes of melon, ripe strawberry, formal notes. A slight burning sensation on the nostrils after a strong inhale, lingers of sweet malt at the end

T- sweet but subtle mango flavors mix with strawberry and a floral sweetness. Wow, this has a big heat kick! It immediately kicks in mid-palate and stays long into the finish and linger. The pepper flavor itself is barely detectable, but the heat is definitely there

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a big pepper burn on the palate that lingers long after. ABV is hidden well behind the heat of the pepper

O- one of the hottest pepper beers that I've tried, it paired nicely with cheese. Only downside is that the heat overpowers the sweetness of the mango somewhat. Food pairings, particularly dairy, work well with this one

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.
