Overall a nice well balanced IPA, Smooth and drinkable. The mango doesn't really show up until the beer warms a bit around second pour from bottle (22oz). When it does it is very good, delicious and very complimentary to base malts and hops. Nice beer. Spring House continues to make good tasting and interesting beers. Will have again if opportunity arises.

One of the best PA IPA products that I've had to date. They are now dating their bottles with a bottling date.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

L: Pours a semi-opaque amber color with thick white head.

S: Citrusy hops on the nose, not picking up on the mango at all.

T/F: Taste is pretty average for an IPA. Faint sweetness which may be the mango but it certainly isn't a dominant flavor. Citrusy hops and well balanced. Right amount of carbonation.

O: A relatively above average IPA. I think the mango aspect was overhyped a bit since that certainly wasn't a dominant flavor. More citrusy hops to my (admittedly limited) palate. I enjoyed it and it's an easy beer to drink. Would be good for a session... I guess I was just expecting something a bit more adventurous.
