32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. Almost yellow. Medium white head. Leggy. Medium collar.

Smell - Lots of mango. Some citrus hops. Doughy pale malt. And diacetyl. Took a while for it to show itself, but as the beer warms, it's strong.

Taste - Mango flavor up front. Diacetyl immediately also. Citrus hops. Orange peel. Sweet pale malt. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Sweet. Medium low carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Tastes great except for the diacetyl. Good while it was cold, but the diacetyl began to overwhelm.

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.

A: Pours a cloudy yellow orange. Loose bubbled bright white head. Lingers. No real lacing.

S: Tons of mango. Fruity grapefruit hops. Some pine. No real malt at all which I like.

T: Not overall blast of bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Good amount of mango. Bitterness kicks in mid palate. Fairly dry finish. Getting some of that juicy mango fruit, sticking with you.

M: Lighter medium.

Served on-tap at the pub.

A - Pours super hazy golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky rings of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong Simcoe hops, bit of pine resin, lots of mango pulp and pale malts and grain.

T - Starts off with a beautiful mix of mango juice and sticky Simcoe hops slowly being joined by the pine sap, pale malt and chewy wheat. Finish is a little chewy with a good amount of fruity bitterness, lingering long after the finish.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, resinous feel with a bit of grain backing it up. No booze is present.

O - This has always been one of their best beers and this batch is no different, it just has never been as good as everyone makes it seem. Worth seeking out but let's not go overboard.
