4.43/5 rDev +16%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
had this in a flight at the tasting room yesterday and was fairly impressed (my notes scored this one in the 4.25+ range) so i nabbed a bottle for closer inspection. enjoyed from a TB batch 2 22oz snifter.
a - brew pours a transparent yellow orange with a nice frothy classic ipa head. the lace coated the glass as the head dissipated. some nice visible carbonation.
s - nose is excellent. the mango really compliments a classic lush resiny tropical hoppy ipa.
t/m - as the nose suggests, a lush mango infused tropical dank hoppy ipa. really tasty and REALLY drinkable. super refreshing, i could drink this all day. full bodied and massively flavorful. nice carbonation. feels big enough to be an imperial, but it is not which makes it really stand out to me.
o - a winner. i'm surprised by the lackluster scores on this one. i am just as impressed with the bottle as i was when i tried it in the flight. if i was local, i would drink this beer constantly. LOVE it.

Pours a light orange color with good clarity. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, soft mango. In the taste, tropical citrus and a hint of mango, but not at the forefront. Strong bitterness and pineapple, with mango in the finish. Medium bodied with solid carbonation. Overall, this is much more of an ipa than a fruit beer, and it's for the best. This is solid.

Obtained through a trade with Afroman, thanks duder! Pours a dark orange-amber with a frothy off-white head.
Smells of fermented fruit, with slight whiffs of cantaloupe, accompanied by a nice hoppy bitterness.
I was hoping for more cantaloupe here, but the taste of the fermentation came through stronger than any scent of fresh cantaloupe could balance so I was a little let down, but still tasty don't get me wrong!
Felt like a mouthful of cantaloupe that has been sitting at 80 degrees under a mattress in a jar would taste like after 2 months, not that great, but the flavor character makes up for it.
Overall a mediocre IPA, but very glad to get a chance to try it. I'll have to travel east sometime and make a stop at the brewery to taste it fresh as I'm sure that could have something to do with it.
