Looks great. Very little nose, & the taste doesn't resemble mango at all. It's just a smooth & average IPA. It's good for that, but doesn't justify the "mango" in the name.

$7.75 bomber from Abe's.

Bright amber body with slight chill haze. Plentiful carbonation streams. Three fingers of billowing off-white foam.

Big mango aroma. Comes across as fresh fruit rather than juice.

Extra sweet beginning. Could use a little depth. Plenty of juicy fruit, but the mango seems to be sitting on top of he beer rather than integrated into the beer. Not much bitterness to balance all the fruit.

Mouthfeel is on the wimpy side for an IPA.

Interesting idea, but comes off as just ok at best.
