look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A-dark amber with a non existent head, just white around the edge

S-faint scent of aged grains and spices. has a fruityness that could pass for some mango, but it's not very apparent.'

T-comes in with a mild flavor of grains and hops and maybe some mango, if that's what you tell me it is. it definitely does have a sticky bitterness to it that sticks to your tongue for awhile. it's a mellow flavor that doesn't really leave an impression, but also has no negative flavors to it.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-this is a really average IPA. i bought it because I thought the idea of a mango IPA sounded interesting. it's definitely a fun beer to drink and the bomber won't go to waste, but there isn't anything here that makes me suggest anyone else to buy it nor would i buy it again.

On tap at Tj's in Paoli.
Golden amber in color with excellent, bright white lacing and decent head retention.
Aroma is a tad faint for what I was expecting, but more of the mango shows up after it warms a little bit.
Taste is very enjoyable. Not a mango punch in the face, but a very solid addition/complement to the style. Spring House has a darker, more malty IPA and this was no exception, but the fruit added a little more sweetness, which I enjoyed because it helped cut down on the bitterness.
Finished very clean. Carbonation spot on and no detection of the alcohol. Very easy drinking here once your palate gets used to the minor sweet aspect of this one.
Very solid execution from Spring House. Looking forward to the day they kick this up a notch.

DATE TASTED: October 31, 2013... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Halloween beer drinking while listening to Bloom-Shipp on the radio... APPEARANCE: dark ruby-brown body; sparse, arching lacing spawned from two-finger off-white head... AROMA: sharp, highly citric hops--a bit of bubblegum and tangerine/mango--flavorful...PALATE: medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel that laces the tongue and warms the throat--full of fortitude...TASTE: fruity, zesty, teeth-rattling hops that coat and clot the mouth with pears, mangoes and apples...OVERALL: more spoils of fantasy sports from Ryan; besides bragging rights, I am treated to some of PA's better micros, and though Conestoga is not a brewery I've sampled before, it will be one I seek bombers from in the future, considering the substantial quality of this fruit bomb of an IPA ...
