Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

on tap at the Taproom in Lancaster - served in imperial pint

Fully clouded ruby red grapefruit-orange pour with a one-finger topping of creamy white head. Fades out into some rings of patchy lacing on the glass.

A tropical wave of mangos, pineapples and grapefruits. Hoppy and fruity with soft sweetness and a soft malt presence. Light alcohol glow as well.

Fruity and bitter right up front with plenty of tropical tones and juicy hops. Cornucopia of mango, pineapple and grapefruit with pithy citrus. Milder malt backbone with toasted grain and soft sweetness. Finishes hoppy and juicy on the tongue.

Medium body, well carbonated, bitter and fairly aggressive on the palate. Really pleasant and impressive tropical fruit-forward IPA - I could have had another but there were too many other beers I wanted to try here.

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 ...
