A rose gold, slightly hazy, bright white head, light lacing
S big bright vibrant fresh mango, a little spicy, pine resin, citrus hops,
T starts out very smooth with a sweet fresh vibrant mango. The middle is a a mix of mango that is abruptly stopped by a serious spiciness! It's super spicy! Oh e burn! The ending is a mix of citrus, mango, light pine hops and some heavy serious habanero burn! The after taste is like eating a habanero slice! It's fucking awesome!
M crisp, sharp and great carbonation! Big burn from the peppers!
O this beer is fucking awesome! A lot of fun, a lot of flavors! The sweet mango and the super spicy peppers are great together and makes it interesting and playful. The most fun I've had with flavors in a beer!

Thanks to dachshunddude for this one!
A: Murky deep gold/amber color. Nice white head on it.
S: Oh my. Burst of mango was the first thing I could smell. Real mango, not artificial. Some spices (not exactly habanero, smells more like sweet/spicy Mexican candy, almost like tamarind.) Some citrusy notes in there as well.
T: Starts out with sweet malts and mango. A tiny bit of citrus from the hops I'm guessing, followed by heat. It's fairly intense heat. Luckily, I like spicy stuff. Whenever I take a sip and feel the heat I immediately want more. More of that sweet mango juice from the beginning. Overall it reminds me of the spicy mango Mexican candy from my youth, very awesome flavor.
M: Light/medium bodied with good carbonation. Mouth is left tingling from the habanero.
O: This is one amazing beer. It is spot-on for what they were trying to accomplish. I could drink this beer for days. Paired this with tacos and tequila.

Medium shade of orange amber. Served with a moderate sized off white head. M
Slight haze. Light lacing. Smell is decent, consisting of orange, caramel malts, citrus, and a moderate vegetal quality. There is some light mango, but it doesn't dominate. Taste is nice. Light sweetness on the front end. Citrus mango, light malts. Habanero comes through strong on the backend offering up bright citrus notes and an appreciable, but tolerable heat. Medium bodied, good carb, moderate pepper heat. Bitterness is there, but its lost in the mix (though its not necessarily missed)
Serving type: on-tap

poured fresh from today's growler release into snifter
appearance: bronzy gold, looks like your typical ipa, some nice carb bubbles noticeable in middle and on top, thin white head, medium opacity
aroma: wow, this smells like a real mango. not like mango flavoring or juice, like if you picked up a real mango at the store and smelled it. a little light on the nose, but still amazing. some soft grassy notes, maybe some lemon/citrusy smells as well from the hops
palate: farily light bodied, very smooth, cant notice the carbonation or booze, the habanero leaves the mouth tingling, which is awesome but it dominates a bit making it less drinkable
taste: starts out sweet and very mango-y with some lemons, very little hop characteristic to the flavor, but then the flavoring turns on you and gets hot and spicy, and is kind of overpowering.. the big downside is it leaves kind of a weird aftertaste. kind of gritty and spicy.
overall: ive not had another beer like this one. its good, very unique, and would go over great for tasting parties. but the spiciness is a bit over-powering, and the aftertaste kind of distracts from the upfront sweet mango-ness. also, i wish it had a bit more hop kick to it, or the sweet flavors lasted longer.
