Poured Mango Magnifico into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a light golden orange with two and half fingers of white puffy head.

S - Geting light citrus notes, some sweet candied qualities. Some light roasted malt. Faint hop bitterness.

T - Wow, weird comes to mind. Kind of silly actually. Sweet mango, orange, citrus flavor. Some malt, light hops mid palate. Finally, release the heat. You can really feel the heat in this one. Very interesting. Very complex and well balanced. I can honestly say I've never had anything close to this. This experiment is freaking awesome. I'm just not sure I can drink a bomber of it.

M - Smooth beer, medium mouthfeel, with medium to low carbonation. Fine stuff here.

O - Impressive, my lips are burning. Yet another fine brew from the one and only Founders! Cheers!

Nice pale color a little orange tint, medium head.

Not a whole lot aroma going on, a little fruity, but nothing overpowering.

This is a crazy beer, the mango starts out strong and is amazing, then the habanero joins the party. At first Habanero, is that fun guy you remember from college and its a great blend. But after a while you remember why you stopped hanging out with him, he's only good in small doses and begins to dominate the party. Really interesting beer but I recommend sharing this with one or two friends.

Appearance: Pours with a beautifully clean slightly orange color. Very low head even on an aggressive pour and no head retention throughout. Average carbonation active while drinking. A very pretty brewski.

Smell: A super soft mango, peach, and orange peel front. There isn't much of the habaneros in the aroma which I found surprising. Slight alcohol presence an the back end. Definitely a bright sweet fruity aroma through and through.

Taste: A mouth watering sugary mango sweetness hits the palate right away. Really wonderfully sweet with a clear distinct mango presence which is very impressive. The fruit starts to dry out a little bit and then the habaneros hit with a mild body. The perfect accents of heat add a ton of depth to this beer. A dry burn deep in the throat is left behind.

Mouthfeel: A stunningly pronounced journey from sweet to hot. I am shocked how well the opposite feelings transition on the palate. Outstanding.

Overall: When I first heard that this was the next Backstage beer, I was intrigued but not overly thrilled. I should have never doubted Founders. This beer is 100% unique and a real treat to drink. I've never been a fan of hot peppers in a beer either but this one is done with masterful craftsmanship. Well done, Founders.

Poured 22 oz. into tulip glass.

Pours a clear amber orange, minimal head, decent lacing.

Smells faintly of mango and habanero.

Taste sweet up front, mangos definately. Finish with a slight burn from habanero.

Full bodied mouthfeel, good carbonation.

I think this beer would be great with mexican dishes, I had no problem finishing this bomber to myself. Not for everyone i'm sure, but I had a great time drinking this one. The burn was there but not too intesnse. Just enough mango to offset.
