Notes/Commercial Description:

A - Just shy of a finger's worth of plush light khaki colored audibly fizzy head... Limited retention gives way to a mostly full veil of lace and a slight collar... The color is a deep dark resiny amber... A limited number of slightly sluggish carbonation bubbles rise throughout...

S - The nose is much more delicate than I had anticipated... First up are a moderately potent citrusy hop goodness... Next comes the sweet mango just as if I had cut into one... There is a solid malt base that lingers beneath the surface... First is the slightly sweet caramel followed by rich doughy notes...

T - The mango sweetness never materializes on the palate... Instead your hit with a fairly potent array of hoppiness... First is strong pungent pine notes... Next are some floral notes... There is a mild citrus presence that is buried way beneath the surface... The malty balance alluded to on the nose is also MIA... There is also a slight medicinal presence on the finish... Not bad by any means, just not what I was expected...

M - On the fuller side of medium bodied... A slight bit of crisp bubbly carbonation... Perhaps a bit thin... Dry and slightly astringent throughout...

D - Not a great American IPA... Not a bad American IPA... This one is situated somewhere squarely in the middle... My largest complaint is that other than the aroma, the mango alluded to in the name of the brew is mostly missing in action... The end result is an average to slightly above average American IPA and the craft beer world is loaded with those...

At first I did not believe I would enjoy this brew but to my surprise it was very delicious. I really enjoyed the taste. It was not too fruity or too heavy. It was not as bitter as I thought so it was a little easier to drink. When the percentage of alcohol read 7.7% how could I resist? I had two.

Spring House is one of my favorite Brewery's. The labels and art work is great. Very creative names. Just seem like some fun people. Being a local brewery, I don't understand why I can't find the Mango IPA around me in central PA.

Appearance: Nice, reddish, orange color. Makes me think of mango's.

Smell: Citrus, mango, hops, sweetness

Taste: Definitely mango. That's the point right? In the top three as far as IPA's I've had. Not extremely bitter. A plus for me.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation. But goes down smooth

Overall: I'd rate this right up with with 90 Minute from Dogfish Head. Again, I wish I could find more of this in my area. I can find other various Spring House brews, but I had to go to the TapRoom in Lancaster to have on tap and take a bomber home with me.
