Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a teku glass

Very interesting brew. Definitely Not what I was expecting but not a terrible beer. Aroma was somewhat off with very little floral hop aroma. I smell the said mango flavor that the label proclaims, however it is not present in the taste. I actually thought the beer was old and oxidized at first but I double checked the date to make sure. Mouthfeel is ok...not much of a party in my mouth as some of the other citra IPAs I have had. Lacing is present in the glass and the brew has a nice head that dissipates slowly. Overall not the best brew but not the worst either. Is it worth a try? Sure why not.

Cheers!

Pours pretty enough and has no date on the btotle. SO when I was decideing to review this beer or no, I decide yes because the brewer could have put the date on and I would not have bought it had I thought it was old or past it's drinking window. For a nose there is some caramel, a bit of cracker and biscuity malt, no fruit at all. I can reach in my imagination because of what is written on the label for some orange or some stone fruits but no. Cool herbal. Taste is just ok and nothing more. If I stretch my mind out I could say a bti of tartness and fruit juiciness. It's malt forward. caramel biscuit and dry cracker. No fruit a bit of herbal and some slickness int eh mouthfeel. This had a medium mouthfeel. I would not buy this again especically not without a date on it.
