Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Kegatron on 03-28-2011

Our juiciest beer features ripe mango and tropical hop aroma on the nose followed by a mild bitterness from the Citra and Falconer's Flight hops and some alcohol warmth to balance out the sweetness of the fresh mango.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: The beer is dark, dirty, cloudy. I LOVE it, no unnecessary filtering or clarifying, the beer is perfectly imperfect.

Smell: Mangoes. Mangoes. Mangoes.

Taste: Starts with a mango kick in the mouth. Finishes hoppy. It's kind of weird when the two powers combine into mangohop. It kind of works, kind of. But I keep drinking for the mango front and hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Not to heavy, not too thin, just right.

Overalll: Am interesting summer beer. Could not drink more than one every so often, but a neat beer to try once.

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 ...
