Disclaimer. I like mangoes. I like habeneros. I like beer.
750 to the dome. Poured in none other than my founders goblet because I am a boss like that.
Half a finger of white head. Decent retention with a fair amount of lace. Color is a clear gold/orange.
The flavor starts out fresh and fruity with a big dose of mango. It really doesn't show any heat. As the beer sits a bit, the fire kicks in. The habanero peppers sit in and light things up. Very hot and spicy. A hint of smoke. This beer shows some malt, but no hops. It is very unique. No presence of the 10%.
Mouthfeel: See above. Sweet at first, then fiery. My mouth actually feels like I have ate some peppers. Medium bodied.
Overall, I am a big fan of this beer. It has a lot of elements that I like. The main reason I like this beer so much is because it starts out with mango, then fades into habanero. It isn't some jumbled mess of a combination. The flavors are strictly split up.

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
