Bright orange color and mostly transparent. Pours a rich, creamy head which, to my disappointment, does not last very long. Did provide a few lace lines. If you look close, you can see tiny little particles suspended in the fluid. Tiny pieces of habanero?

Bready wheat aroma right away followed by sweet tropical fruit. Mellow yet intriguing.

Malt forward but not overdone. Mango is there but seems to lie in the background. Mild, citric hop bitterness and not quite enough to balance out the malt. Near the end the habanero hits you with a subtle, tingling warmth on the lips and tongue.

Full bodied. Sticky. Slick and oily texture. Mild carbonation.

Not bad. Definitely different. Begs to be paired with tortilla chips and pico de gallo.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours gold with a one finger foamy white head, with decent retention and lacing. The aroma has mango, peppers, and bread malt. The aroma doesn't really stand out.

The taste is sweet with mango and bread malt. There is also some heat from the habanero peppers, but I like spicy food, so no problem there. Not overly complex. Just mango, pepper, and bread malt.

Medium bodied with average carbonation. The 10.00 % abv is well hidden by the heat from the peppers. There is a spicy pepper aftertaste. Not a bad beer at all, but not as good as the last Backstage Series beer, Doom, which was sensational. Worth trying if you get the chance, and like spicy food and beer.

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.
