From 09/12/13 notes. On tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC.

a - Pours a hazy amber color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells a little bit metallic, and of mangos, fruity malts, yeast, spice, hot peppers, and trpoical fruits. At first not a lot of pepper but there is some definite spice on the back end.

t - Tastes of mango juice, tropical fruits, peppers, more spice, yeast, fruity malts, and earthy notes. No real metallic notes here, but more spice and hot peppers. Little too much for me personally.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is a bit spicy.

o - Overall I wasn't a huge fan of this one. It is interesting and I'm assuming what they were going for, but too much spice and peppers for me; I woudl have preferred it with just the mangos. Interesting and worth trying if you like the spice, but glad I didn't pick up a bottle of it.

Mexican street food in a bottle. This beer really does remind me of buying some mango sprinkled with chili from a street vendor in Mexico. The mango is quite exuberant and the spice is quite prominent without overwhelming the other flavors, but still gives you a slow burn. Whether you like this beer or not probably depends on whether you like these flavors. For what it's supposed to be, they nailed it. I happen to like this quite a bit. For me, this is one of those tastes wher the sum is more than it's parts, and the combination of juicy, ripe mangoes and bright chili really creates a dazzling summer concoction. Very well done.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass

A- Nice clear orange or I guess mango color with a high slight off white head.

S- Sweet mango with a touch of the pepper. Bitter hop aroma.

T- Initially very sweet then the aggressive heat takes over on the back end. Not very subtle on either end and not very balanced. Not getting much of the alcohol, the heat seems to be covering it up.

M- Nice medium to heavy viscosity, good carbonation.

O- This is my first chili beer and glad it got to be this special release from Founders. Can't say it has made me a fan of the style and I think it is both to sweet and too spicy. Interestingly enough the more it warmed up the more I got use to the assertive flavors. Would like to try a dark chili beer sometime, I would think the chocolate and roast would lend itself more to the chili like in food.
