Golden-orange body. Thin finger of creamy white head.

Nose is pretty bland. Almost a corn-flake characteristic that reminds me of a macro lager. Slight spicy burn on the finish buoys up my score a tad.

Flavor is sweet and bland at the same time...then comes the finish. I love spicy hot everything, so I am enjoying this. Clean, smoky burn lightly coats the palate. Contrasts nicely with the sweetness. Not bad.

Mouthfeel is smooth and slick. Pepper quality has it's own coating.

Overall, moderate drinkability. I may have trouble finishing off the big bottle solo, but a 12 oz serving would be very welcome.

Tastes like sweet soda with some heat on the back end. Odd. Not bad though.

Pours a crystal clear straw color with honey highlights. The head is short and dense, settles into a light cap. Some yeast floaters floating about.

The aroma is light. There is a slight grain note. There is also a sweetness from what I assume is the mango. It is a fruity smell but not sure it smells like mango.

The taste is of a sugary mango. Quite fruity, nice ripe flavor. The malt is light and slightly bready. Not sure if I am picking up some wheat. The habaneros provide heat in the finish but no vegetal flavors, which is nice.

Moderate feel with prickly carbonation. Quite sweet on the palate. A bit sticky and syrupy. Nice heat in the finish.

The beer is a bit too sweet for my liking. However, Founders has done the best job I have seen adding the hot peppers appropriately without adding a vegetable flavor. It is a nice amount of heat.
