I had this beer out of a bottle into pint glass,

The appearance is of a typical ipa, great flow of bubbles pours well with a good head.

Very suttle ginger and mango smell to it, and tastes almost exactly as it smells, not very bitter compared to some IPA's, the taste is great and very enjoyable and you could drink many of these because of the lightness and great flavor.

I enjoyed this very much, So much I purchased a whole case.

I purchased this for home consumption at The Fridge and having done my civic duty and voted, it is time for some beer.

My pour got me two fingers of fluffy eggshell-white head with decent retention. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Midas and Croesus were both licking their lips across from me. Nose was odd, definitely laden with the distinctive scent of a woman, I mean, mango, but I was unsure of how the hops were interacting with the fruit. You know how some people make the analogy with a taco? It really should be with mango - fleshy, deep pink, a pungent flavor, you may get the idea. Mango Wango Tango, man! Ted Nugent knows. Mouthfeel was medium and the hops were really overrun by the mango. I liked it, but I hope that they did not use a whole buncha rare and expensive hops to make this one. Finish was semi-dry between the hops and the mango, which I never thought of as a sweet fruit. Would I drink it again? Hell, yeah! Lay some mango on me, baby, and don't hold back!

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance
Straw/gold with moderate carbonation and poor head retention.

Nose
Caramel, mango, ginger, lemongrass, tea

Taste
The ginger comes through nicely along with lighter notes of mango. Lemongrass and Earl Grey tea make an appearance as well as some very light caramel malts.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing.

Overall
Very light and refreshing for 7%. Very mild and balanced for an IPA. Pairs well with the 100 degree Spring weather.

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.

A- Pours a light golden color with a dense two-finger head. Head has great retention and leaves sticking lacing. Some chill haze present as well.

S- Mango, ginger, floral hops, citrus, black pepper, and just a hint of alcohol.

T- Fruitiness upfront mixed with some spiciness (ginger). A little pale malt flavor comes through about halfway and the finish has some more spiciness and just a little pine resin.

M- Light to medium with above average carbonation.

O- A middle of the road IPA that leans more toward the fruity side instead of bitter. This is only my second beer from Boxcar, but so far this is my favorite. A nice IPA that's worth a try. Cheers.
