Poured from a capped bomber into a wine glass- pours a clear golden orange color with minimal head, retention and lacing. Pretty color.

Smell is not that intense- mild sweet mango and malt notes.

Taste is very interesting- lots of mango, a little pale malt malt and certainly a habanero burn towards the end.

Mouthfeel is like mango juice- relatively thick and creamy with a little carbonation and the tongue and throat burn from the habanero. Interesting beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Wild Monk. Served in a 10 oz. snifter.

A: Pours a yellowish color with orange hues. A white head forms on the pour and has some nice retention. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass.

S: A little sweet cereal grain with a fruity and citrus backing. The mango is present and the sweetness from the habanero is present as well with out providing the heat.

T: Mango flesh up front. Very tropical and bright with a fruitiness. The habanero flesh is present giving a nice sweetness while the malts come around in the form of some hawaiian sweet bread. The heat hits on the finish, but it isn't obtrusive at this point. Just a little bit of heat at the back of the throat.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Very well hidden ABV.

O: I actually really enjoyed this one. The 10 oz was enough for me, but it was nicely balanced between sweet and heat.

24 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass twice.

A - Pours a clearish red-amber. Nearly no carbonation visible. A small head appeared, which did stick around and left some lacing. Nice looking beer. Pretty.

S - Yum. The malt and hops of ale are noted quickly upfront, but that quickly gives way to a hint of mango, and lot's of habanero. The spice is extremely evident by the aroma. Almost makes you hungry!

T - Interesting. Now the taste of a quality ale is noted upfront. During the swallow is when I noticed the mango, and man, that habanero is strong in the aftertase. Leaves a burning feeling afterwards. You don't just taste the habanero, you feel it. Along with the habanero spice, I do believe some black pepper was added as well. While the taste was very good, there was way too much sugar added. The mango flavor itself was good, but the beer was way too damn sweet. That killed this beer.

F - It's worst quality. The beer is extremely sticky, almost to the point of needing a glass of water along with the beer. I loved the feel of the heat on my tongue and in my throat, but the "sugary" thickness and stickiness kills it.

O - An interesting beer, and a decent beer. Really liked the flavor, but the overt sweetness killed it. Perhaps a fair amount of less sugar, and this beer could be outstanding. The stickiness also kills it. I believe this beer would be better paired with food, but at $13 a bottle at the local store that carries it, I won't be trying that. Overall a decent beer, and if you can get it cheap, try it. Certainly not worth $13 a bottle in my opinion.

25.4oz bottle. Pours a semi translucent amber color with a half inch of head. Some lacing. Big whiff of mango along with the habaneros. Bready with hints of tropical fruits. Fruity with the heat in the background. The taste is a big amount of sweet mango followed by the heat of the habaneros. Really fruity and sweet upfront followed by spicy and heat at the end. Almost too sweet. I like the heat at the end but the sicky sweetness of the mango is my main issue. Light mouthfeel. I like chile beers, rauchbiers and other spicy brews but the heat from this one can't offset the overly sweet mango. And much like Frangelic Mountain Brown, its too sweet and has an artificial taste to it. Overall, not what I was hoping this would be. Wish I was splitting this bottle with someone. I won't be buying this again.
