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.

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.
