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.

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.

My first time visiting the Spring House Taproom in Lancaster with my girlfriend. Mango IPA, holy hell that sounds delicious, served in a 12 ounce snifter glass.

A: Clear, light copper colored body with a slightly off-white (perhaps even white) head. Nothing but a thin retention ring around the edges of the glass with almost no lacing. Some little patches here and there but nothing great.

S: Mango forward nose with loads of juicy mango, citrus fruits, orange oils and ginger. A grainy malt backbone shows up towards the end of the aroma but the citrusy hops and mango are the focus of this beer.

T: Loads of delicious mangoes control the palate, along with very West Coast-esque citrus hops. The bitterness here is quite moderate, not overdone, and my girlfriend who generally doesn't like bitter beers was a fan of this. The finish is somewhat dry though quite fruity. I feel like this beer has an amazing balance of citrusy hops and enough fruity flavors to strike an incredibly diverse profile.

M: Medium-bodied, prickly carbonation enough to provide a wonderful body with really great delivery to the entire palate. I wish all IPAs had this same mouth feel, simple great.

This is one IPA that is seriously fruit-forward, and in terms of mangoes it works extremely well. I think the citrus qualities play very well with the hops and give this a balanced body and flavor. One IPA I could literally see myself drinking daily. Outstanding and it's a shame this isn't bottled to share.
