Notes/Commercial Description:
Scratch #58 is collaboration between Tröegs brewers along with Troy Gadbury and Brad Moyer, winners of a homebrew contest sponsored by Al’s of Hampden. This Triple Mango IPA is bold, brazen and over-the-top. Unfiltered and highly-carbonated (for killer hop burps), Scratch 58 measures in at 125 IBU’s and 10.8% ABV. With a spicy mango nose and an intense overripe grapefruit flavor, we recommend this beer as the grand finale to your day as it overwhelms even the most-hoppy beers.

Reviewing the Scratch Beer #98: Triple Mango IPA from Tröegs Brewing Company out of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Yes, they have stuff other than chocolate there.

Score: 93

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).

A: Cloudy and hazy as hell. Really deep orange color. Really looks like a mango puree. Basically no head. Initially there was some white but that quickly faded into nothing. Tough to get carb at 11%

S: Big fruit. Tons of mango. No real hop stuff. Light malt. Smells like mango puree.

T: Up front, some earthy but mostly mango and citrus. It's not as "hoppy" as I was hoping but certainly fruity. The alcohol does come up at you as you let it warm. The finish leaves you with a little burn down the throat.

M: Medium bodied.

Creamy unfiltered light orange. Light white-orange head. Looks good.

Citrus, citrus, tropical, floral, and citrus! Grapefruit pith, orange rind, mango, floral notes, and light pine. Nice!

Tropical notes with mango, tangerine, floral notes, and white grapefruit. Malts are sweet, but very pale. Light caramel hints.

Smooth, but the ABV will meet you closer than halfway. Carb is nice. A little sudden.

Great DIPA. Recommended.
