12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
5.5% ABV, 40 IBUs, 0794 on neck
A - Deep clear amber in color, Peach Mango IPA pours surprisingly darker than I had anticipated but, with it's tall ivory pile of foam and thick lacing coating the glass, it's beautiful and inviting nonetheless.
S - Explosive tropical fruit aromatics inject delicious and ripe peach wedges and balled mango straight to da dome! Cascade hops pull through the fruity delight to ensure a beautiful blend of citrus and earthy hop balance and even though there's a nice bready malt base beneath, it's easy to forget it's there in this fruit-forward aroma.
T - Point's Peach Mango IPA unravels a bit differently on the tongue than the image painted in your head by the aroma, though it's certainly no fault. Bursting with citrusy cascade hops and earthy undertones, this IPA's bite tears through the fruity combination of chunks of peach and mango tangoing on the tongue.
M - Lively carbonation dances on the tongue while this medium bodied IPA smoothly crosses the palate, drying out in the finish with the just the faintest touch of sweetness lapping at the hoppy bitterness left on the tongue.
O - I'm a huge fan of peaches, mangoes, and IPAs so living up to the name Peach Mango IPA on the label was an immediate up-hill battle for Point but they pulled off this incredible beer without a hitch. It's explosive and captivating aroma of tropical fruit leads right into a forward hop flavor and balanced bitter finish that's as close to perfection as they come, making Peach Mango IPA live up to and exceed it's name!

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Bottled March 20.
A - Dark amber with a 1.5 finger off white head. Decent retention, thick collar and good amounts of lacing.
S - Oof, the aroma starts off with a strong canned peach smell. In fact it is difficult to find the malt or the hops in it. I detect a bit of mango, but good luck finding much else.
T - Argh, it is a bitter peach flavor that leaves an odd taste in my mouth. The flavors do not go together well. It finishes bitter and very little malt is detected.
M - Light and well carbonated, but it just doesn't feel like it should Probably from the weird flavors.
O - This is a miss and I don't recommend it...

Pours deep golden with a lasting head. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of a robust fresh peach. Only a slight trace of mango is present. Not much of an "IPA" aroma, but the peach aroma is very nice.
The taste falls off from the aroma. While not particularly hoppy for an IPA, the bitterness clashes with the fruitiness in an odd way. Still, it doesn't taste "bad", just not particularly "good".
It's a bit fizzy and thin, but holds together well enough.
It's an interesting idea that just doesn't pan out to be much more than "okay".

This pours a clear, amber color with a bit of a head. The aroma is strong with fruity peaches and mangos. The taste is awkward to say the least as the mango flavor really clashes with bitterness of the hops. The taste gets a little more likable with each drink but this is still far from a desirable beer and is borderline disgusting. This one really needs to go back to the drawing board.

12oz bottle with no date
I don't know what happened here... the fruit comes off as perfume-y, both in the taste and smell, killing any enjoyment to have. It's like a squirt of potpourri in a otherwise decent IPA.
I like the idea behind this pack, and point brewery as of late, but this is nasty stuff.

Pours a huge, soapy head that laces nicely. Aroma is dominated by peach and mango (it smells really great). Amber color, clear. Starts out with a bright, citric hop bitterness with fruity undertones. A flash of smooth, biscuity malt. Peaks in a medium-high bitterness, then comes Peach and mango, with the hop bitterness returning into the finish.
This is surprisingly great. I was definitely worried about this one, but it's really, really good. The hop bitterness contrasts so well with the fruitiness, and the citric hop flavors blend masterfully.

On paper this one sounded interesting but in the glass it doesn't work so well. The peach flavor is immense on the nose and continues on the taste with hints of sweet mango on the taste as well....smells and drinks like a flavored wheat ale at first.
I do get a slight hop impression through it all...maybe a bit of citrus but really more of a just a little bittering to this loead of sweet fruits.
i like it when places try things like this....this is not horrible but certainly nothing I think will stick as a regular offering down the road....an ok novelty beer.
