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.

If someone handed me a glass of this beer I wouldThere think mango ginger. There's a touch of a fruitiness in the finish that could be described as mango. There is some ginger in the mouthfeel but not much in the way of ginger spiciness. Overall flavor is mild and easy going. Not really a beer for a devout ipa lover but a solid bit of brewing. I'd consider getting this again.
