Pale, pastel, yellow. Incredibly cloudy to the point of being opaque. Forms a modest fizzy white head. Light lacing. Smell is pleasant: lots of biscuit malt and lots of "dry" citrus hops with mango to a lesser extent. Also citrus, mango, and tropical fruit, but very light, crisp, and almost lemony. Taste is very crisp and dry. Citrus, grapefruit, grapefruit zest. Very light on body. Very dry.
Overall a bit disappointing. Was expecting a lot more mango out of this one, but its very dry and quite crisp as if all of the sugars had been fermented out of it. Nicely hopped and a decent beer, but was expecting more complexity with a beer that was more fruit forward. In the end, there were three of us drinking a growler and after a glass each, we all just moved on to another beer.

Awesome growler want hit by Al....man thank you so much! Growler opened within minutes of landing on my porch.
Pours a massive cloudy yellow with orange highlights. Loads of hop particulates float lazily throughout. Carbonation is thankfully solid after a week and the surface shows big soapy white bubbles.
Smell is of big sugary mangoes...nice and fleshy and ripe. Hops lay down an herbal and piney element along with some additional sweet fruits on the periphery.
Similar to the smell, the mango presence is large and in charge and shows sweet and sticky. The hops wrap themselves around and plant a tight bitter fang into the scrumptious fruit. Moderate pine bitterness tags along towards the finish and rides the coattails of the lingering mango sweetness.
Mouthfeel is supple and the carbonation helps keep the beer from becoming to sticky sweet on the tongue, though the residual sugary and plush flavors from the mango just stick to the palate and linger a good long while.
There is a dangerous element of desirability and crushability here that could do some damage to my afternoon and mental capacities. That said, I could see how some could say that a single glass would do the trick and the flavors could become cumbersome.
Tons of mango, tons of hops, tons of fun....thank you Al!

I had this on tap at the brewpub served in an 8 oz stemmed glass chilled.
The color is very hazed golden with orange hues when held to thelight with thick frothy head, the beer is almost green hued becuase of the high hop dosage and suspended hop particulate - fresh! The smell is like fresh squeezed citrus infused with the sweet tropical juicy mango aroma and some strong hop odors which are both floral and have the simcoe stamp on them. The feel is great - excellent blend of hops and mango tangy & juicy texture with moderate bitterness and medium carbonation with light astringency and only gets grassy as it finished with low alcohol in the feel.
The taste of this Mango Imperial IPA is great it walks the fruit and Hoppy ale line with more hops than mango in the taste however the mango provides a nice fruit accent. The Simcoe is high in the taste with mild astringent element with a slight mango flavor to soften with a bitter jab in the dry fruity finish. Overall I really loved this enough to share a growler with my wife and friends the next day - plenty of hops yet a mango twist -well done Tired Hands!
