First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA
Scratch Beer #98 (so I guess that makes this the second Mango IPA batch of the Scratch series).
Poured an opaque peach-amber color with an eggshell head that retained well. Juicy mango aroma, citrus, biscuity malt sweetness. Flavors of mango pulp, rind, citrus pith, lasting hop bitterness (not too intense), biscuity pale malts; there was a bit of solvent-like alcohol in the distance, but nothing really offensive, and for a 10+% ABV beer, it was no big deal. Medium body, chewy, but still refreshing and enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewing the Scratch Beer #98: Triple Mango IPA from Tröegs Brewing Company out of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Yes, they have stuff other than chocolate there.
July 2013 vintage bottle served in a Perennial snifter and enjoyed on 08/06/13.
Appearance: Clearly unfiltered. Pours a pulpy, hazy mango color with a darker center. Pours about a finger of orangish-white head that settles to a ring around the glass. Good lacing, good retention. 4/5
Smell: Huge notes of mango and pineapple, some peach and resinous hops as well. A little pine and floral character too. Very juicy smelling. 4.25/5
Taste: Bitter mangoes, pineapple, orange rind and piney hops. Has a nice bitter bite to it upfront that mellows out, but lingers towards the finish. This brew has a juicy tropical citrus backbone with a little sweetness that imparts a little balance, but this is a very bitter-leaning IPA with less tropical citrus sweetness than a lot of juicy IPA have. The bitterness layers nicely on the center of the tongue. No booziness to speak of; you would never guess the ABV was in the double digits. 4.25/5
Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied, low carbonation. This is one of the more viscous IPA that I have had to date. Bitterness lays on the tongue nicely. 4.5/5
Overall: Quite an excellent IPA. Very bitter for the amount of tropical citrus present. I think it drinks nice and easy, though only those who love the taste of bitter hops are likely to concur. Either way, you would never guess the ABV.
Cost: $55 for a case of 24 bottles (or just under $14 a six pack).
