A combination of amber and gold with a huge head into my glass. I like that it's a collaboration between Mikkeller and Tiger Baby.

Old-school pine tar blast upfront with a touch of buttery malt underneath. Smells like an APA on steroids. An IPA?

Citrus notes come through upfront. It's brewed with mango and passionfruit. The mango is more apparent and works well with the hops used.

Lingering mango and passionfruit make up the mouthfeel. Alcohol heat is there too.

Very nice. I would prefer it if the alcohol level was dialed down. However, if you age it, you will probably taste more of the mango and passionfruit and less of the alcohol itself.

3.6/5  rDev -7.5%

750 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice and fruity, the brew smells mostly like mango, along with some citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), honey and sweet malt. It tastes like mango, citrusy and floral hops, and a bit of bready malt. There's also a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a little creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a solid brew overall. $11.99 a bottle.

3.6/5  rDev -7.5%

1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Port Brewing taster glass. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery. Acquired at Wally's Wine in Westwood, California.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger head of no real cream, okay thickness, and fairly bad retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper. No yeast particles are visible.

Sm: Pleasant floral hops and passion fruit esters. A mild to moderate strength aroma. Certainly inviting.

T: Pleasantly floral and estery, with passion fruit and light citrusy notes. No alcohol comes through. Mango is present when I look for it. Very fruity and fresh. Very well balanced and built. I like the bright fruits. Quite refreshing and enjoyable. Has a tropical feel to an extent. Not particularly complex or subtle, but it doesn't need to be to satisfy what it's going for.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with enough coarseness to bring out the flavours. Thick enough. Adequately carbonated without being overly so.

Dr: Very drinkable, especially for the high ABV. I'd get it again, preferably on draught. Hides its ABV incredibly well. A lovely pale ale. A bit pricey, but quite nice. Fans of the style will love it.

It drank just fine out of my Port Brewing taster glass. Would pair well with any food.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a taster glass. Reviewed live.

A- One finger white-clear head. Mediocre retention. No lacing to speak of. Only moderate clarity, not very impressive appearance.

S- Hoppiness, piney and warm. Nice smell. Some honey and earthy sweetness.

T- Hoppy, but a very honeyed sweetness with distinct deeper flavors. Has layered hops, both floral and spicy; finishes very thin in flavor.

M- Thin, but substantial.

O- Very flavorful, not wonderful though. I'd buy it again. Or at least share it again.

3.73/5  rDev -4.1%

Bottle: Poured a light hazy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of citrus and bitter hops is quite dominant with light malt presence. Taste is also dominated by light citrus notes with some bitter hops and malt backbone is semi-sweet with limited impact on the overall flavour profile. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Interesting but not sure if there was supposed to be some mango in this beer as my Danish isn’t that good but can’t say I tasted them if there was any.
