750 ml bottle into a DFH signature glass. Pours a vibrant amber body with an initial four fingers of white foam which settles into a thin cap with thick edging. Really solid lacing and long lasting retention. Has a certain "IPA" look to it.
S - Mango juice and bready malts. That is it. I'm not detecting any spice at all. The mango is very strong and juicy though.
T - Juicy mangos, bread, and then a deeep underlying spice and heat. The habaneros are never too much, but they certainly make their presence known on some sips. This is a very simple beer with two elements working very well. The abv is extremely well hidden. Mouth feel is medium bodied and well carbonated.
O - Probably not a great beer to be put under the backstage series, but it is very successful at what it set out on. Fresh juicy mangoes? Check. Mild habanero heat? Double check. Very tasty in small doses, but not worthy of a 750ml bottle or a $13 price tag.
