There's lots of bubbly carbonation in a head that is continually being built up but never holding itself completely. It forms a ring with some thin foam in the middle and drops spotting.
The aroma isn't bad. I'd like more hops, but the mango does well. There's a bit of saccharine sweetness that stops just short of being too much. Some grassy bitterness is light, but comes through. Malts take a back seat, which improves what it would be otherwise due to lower hops presence.
The combination of mango and hops turns toward sourness, which in turn is strange when combines with sugared fruits. Meh. That it needs a stronger hops presence is obvious.
The body teeters on the line between light and medium. There's a crispness that would be more refreshing if it wasn't sticky. Carbonation saves the day, but just.

First off I am an avid coffee drinker, but I never like flavored coffee. Thus far, as a novice craft beer drinker, I have never liked a sweet fruit flavored beer. This beer is no exception, almost a drain pour. I'm struggling through it but need a chocolate cheese cake or whipped cream cake to cut it.

As benchmark, I am tasting this vs TERRAPIN TREE HUGGER ALE.

A: Fine yellow, mango flesh color, but head deflates under all that fruit juice (no surprise) 2.5
S: Smell artificial, with nothing left to the underlying beer at all. The worst of bathroom fresheners / cleaning agents. 1.5
T: Not as bad as the smell but below average. Starts as the faux mango smell, a bit of beer flesh, and then the finish might as well be mango soda. 2.25
M: Thin, flat, teeth on edge 2
O: Skip this. 2 (Poor, as it pour this on your compost or flowers - dilute it first)

Gets the honor of my lowest rated beer.

Bottle > Mason Pint

A - Clear light gold in color with a thin layer or fizzy white head.
S - Fruit cocktail and clorox
T - Soapy bitter weird artificial fruit flavor. Atrocious.
M - Dry and acrid.
O - This is garbage and should be drain-poured at every given occasion.
