Thanks to robieobie1 for this awesome extra, sounds delicious. It plumps out of the bottle looking thick, cloudy, almost-syrupy even, mango-colored (go figure) and pretty much as opaque as it gets. It looks much more like full-on mango juice than actual beer. The soapy white head is barely noticed as it fades within seconds. I actually kind of dig the look, but by "beer" standards, it could use a little work.
Grassy mangoes come to mind as I lean in for a whiff. Juicy-ass mangoes with a light brushing of grassy hops. Very sweet, very thick, and very juicy with even a touch of tartness in the back end. So not only does it look like mango juice, it smells like it, too. Pungent mangoes and grassy hops - that'll do! Some light alcohol becomes noticeable with warmth - not surprising, given the ABV.
Wow, what a huge mouth feel! Heavy, thick, and sticky as they come - chalk up another check mark in the "mango juice" column! At this point, I'm beginning to wonder if this is beer, or just alcoholic mango juice! The mango flavors are so fresh and pure; sweet, succulent mangoes crowd each and every sip, accompanied by a warming alcoholic presence. Don't let the relatively light color of the beer fool you - it's huge.
Big-time sweet mangoes, almost to a certain degree of tartness, finish things out and leave your mouth feeling like you just chugged a gallon of mango juice. Aside from some light grass here, or faint bready malt there, this beer is nothing but mango, mango, mango - all day, in your face. It's a big goddamn beer, and I challenge anybody who thinks fruity beers are weak to try and chug this shit. It's cumbersome when gulped, but damn good to sip in small doses.
Thanks again to robieobie1 for this one. It didn't quite turn out like I expected, though it was a pretty good evening sipper either way. Like an adults only version of Minute Maid's mango juice; have a glass of this before supper and you'll off to bed in no time. A sweet and savory motherfucker, no doubt, but not in your typical "big-sweet-beer" kind of way.

On tap at the brewery. The winner of Al's of Hampden's homebrew competition - a triple mango IPA weighing in over 10%.
A: The DIPA is hazy, a pulpy-looking orange-brown amalgum of color blanketed by a white head. Mild lacing followed the recession of the head. Opaque, obviously, in a pulpy state.
S: Fortified, the nose is heavy. Nondescript hoppiness at first, too damned cold coming off the draught. As time passes, the hoppiness coalesces into a bitter citric dose, strands of alcohol running alongside it. The mangos add further citrus, sweeter and fuller, although they need some time to come through. The heat is difficult to ignore.
T: Leafy hops are immediately present, a wall of citrus bitterness with a fair share of alcoholic heat. The citrus has grapefruit and orange, complimenting the late-to-arrive mango sweetness. The near-fusel booziness gets in the way every now and then, hot and heavy. The leafy hops become stronger with the addition of the alcohol, the bitterness formidable. Mangos are a welcome addition, lush tropical sweetness against the nite of the hops.
M: Over 10%? Approached with caution, the ale's bitterness fits in well with the plentiful mango. The nose brings the fruit out best but the flavor is big and sippable.

Missed out on a case given how quickly it sold out, but thanks to a friend I got my hand on the bottle...
A - Just the slightest of fizzy off-white bone colored head that dissipates very quickly... The limited retention gives way to an ultra thin slightly scattered veil of lacing with a thin collar... The color is that of a deep rich ripened peach... A distinctive and unexpected haziness lingers throughout... Only a limited bit of light leaks in around the edges of the glass... 100% still with no discernible carbonation... Looks thick and chewy... The appearance has an overall "homebrew" quality about it...
S - A sweet fruity mix of mango, tangerine and peach is first the greet the senses... There is a slight layer of rather pedestrian hoppiness... Perhaps even an unexpected crisp wheat component... Overall, this aroma is much sweeter and much less hoppy than I would have expected...
T - Boom - The hops that were oddly missing on the nose are blistering the tongue from first sip... They are an overly assertive mix of pine and earthiness... The sweet fruity goodness alluded to by the nose takes a distant backseat - there is just the slightest presence at the start... There is a bit of an alcohol induced burn on the finish...
M - Full bodied... Thick, chewy and even teetering on sludgy... An unexpected carbonated bite... The finish is equal parts dry and chalky... Definitely a bit rough around the edges...
D - To be honest, I had rather high expectations for this one but it served to be a bit of a let down... I'm quite happy I tried, but I'm not sure this is something I would indulge in on a regular basis... An over the top hop bomb with no balance that lacks in terms of overall depth and complexity...

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).

ST- growler poured into a tulip
A- poured a cloudy deep orange with a lot of haze, no light got through this one!
S- Can definitely smell the mango, I said it smelt tropical. Can definitely smell how sweet this is going to taste.
T- Wow, sweetness is full force as it hits, equal to the force of fruitiness. After the rest of my senses come to, i can taste the alcohol backbone to this brew.
M- This beer leaves a thick heavy feeling. My mouth feels sticky.
O- I had heard about this brew for awhile and I had to grab it when I visited Hershey. I am real glad I did. It definitely has its ups and downs but I enjoyed every sip I took. I didn't like the sticky feeling I got between sips. But really enjoyed the flavor smell and complexity(even if I couldn't figure out all of its depth!) if this were bottled I would enjoy buying it here and there. If you can, grab it.
