3.2/5 rDev -3.6%
Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of mild ginger, just a touch of mango. Taste is also on the mild side, some hops but definiatly lacking in bitterness for and IPA. Some ginger is present, mango is MIA for the most part. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer but nothing special.

Pours a bright golden straw color, moderate cap of soapy white froth and some lacing. Scent leads with ginger combined with tropical and citrus, as advertised, heavy does of sweetness hinted at. Moderate kick of ginger smoothed over by juicy tropical and citrus fruits, sugary sweetness and light caramel, faint herbal hops presence. Lighter side of medium, moderate carbonation. A pleasent surprise, undone a bit by the body.

Served in a bottle at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with some light orange highlights and light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy light beige head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate amounts of tropical/mango, citrus/orange, and floral hops over a light amount of malts (caramel and wheat). There are light to moderate notes of ginger and black pepper.
T: Upfront there is a combination of light to moderate amounts of caramel malts and some wheat with light notes of ginger and black pepper. That is followed by some light notes of tropical/mango and citrus/floral/orange blossom hops. Light amounts of bitterness that fade rather quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Overall I wish both the mango and the ginger were more in the forefront of this beer, especially with the flavor aspects. It is a decent beer but I feel slightly mislead by the name - there are just very subtle notes of mango and light amounts of ginger. Alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy enough to drink, though I don't think I will be getting this one again.
