look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: growler

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!
