I am reviewing this one with a little age on it - under a year, but not by much. The beer pours a slightly cloudy neon orange with a minimal head. The aroma is dominated by fresh and preserved mango, as well as some peach hard candy. The flavor is sweet, but definitely not cloying, with loads of mango, as well as hints of stone fruit, apricot, nectarine, and peach, and then on the swallow the pepper heat comes through, perfectly cutting thropugh the sticky mango finish. The mouthfeel is rich, not quite full, but quite sticky. Overall this is a damn fine beer - I know it got a lot of negative press when first released, but I must say I am digging this - glad I found it a 20% off.

I bought on clearance expecting a train wreck after KOS and Project Pam. Very good, unique, spicy and well done.

I really like this one! Both the smell and the taste are pretty substantial mango. The habanero is just a hint as described. The taste really reminds me of my favorite salsa which is Mikey V's Sweet Ghost Pepper Sauce, made in Georgetown TX.

Too much in my opinion. Overly sweet and mango overpowers this brew. Hard to finish my serving.

L: Dark orange. Had a bourbon type of color to it.
S: Candied mango on the nose. Strong liqueur flavor. Can definitely tell it's high ABV. Again, not shy about the mango on the nose.
T: Strong mango on the front. Very sweet, syrupy flavor. Too much for my liking. Destroyed my taste for other beers the rest of the night.
F: Had a thick syrupy feel to the body.
