Ontap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Great surprise. The spice in the aftertaste was both surprising & surprisingly good. Deceptive at 10%. Don't let the novelty or subtlty decieve. This is worth a try. Hope to cross paths again.

Orange semi hazed color, orange tinged head. Lots of mango on the nose. Touch of pepper on the nose. Lots of sweet mango upfront followed by hot pepper flavor. Finishes with an insane amount of heat which covers the alcohol pretty well but damn is this thing spicy, must be a lot of habenaros in this. The mix of mango and habenaros is nice at first but beyond my first sip, this beer is far too much. Flavors build and build and build and become overwhelming, i like spicy foods, but heat isn't supposed to be this much of a player in a beer. splitting this amongst two people would be tough, only got through a qauter of the bottle before drain pouring. Every sip got worse and worse and as the beer warmed up it just started to taste like mango habanero vodka, overpowering in a bad way. Too sweet and too spicy at the same time. Cloying, and painful. I think people are trying to find the good in this beer because it has founders written on the label but this beers a giant dud and a giant waste of money.

Pours a golden color with low carbonation. Aroma is sweet mango / fruit juice. Flavor is mango juice that fades into habanero heat. The juice flavor is a little in the artificial side and the heat isn't balanced enough to me. Overall this is just ok, nothing special.
