I actually got this beer by accident at the Troegs brewery. I thought I was buying the triple Golden Ale and discovered I had been poured this instead.
Upon smelling the beer I discovered the mistake. Intense citrusy hops greeted my palate. I definitely get the mango/tropical fruit in the aroma.
It pours an opaque dark orange color with nice lacing.
The taste is big hop flavor with a little citrus and tropical mango which ends with some alcohol bite to remind you how strong this brew is. Definitely not a session beer. It's probably a beer I would order one pint of and be done with for the night.
Pretty decent brew, if you're looking for a flavorful Triple IPA then I suggest trying this one. It's not for the faint of heart though. It's a big one.

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).
