Bomber poured into a snifter.

3.25 A: Murky dark orange color. Two fingers of frothy beige-ish head. Retention is about average and one finger of spotty lacing is left.

3.75 S: Lots of mango and cantaloupe to start. Papaya underneath. The hops also give a pleasant sugariness. Bready malts and yeast. Mainly clean, but a bit of a vegetal component in there as well. Still, overall it's pretty good.

3.75 T: Mild-moderate bitterness. Again sugary hops and plenty of mango, papaya, and cantaloupe. I'm not picking up the off-flavors in the taste, so good there. Booze is well hidden and malts are bready and biscuity.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Active spritziness to it with a mild creaminess.

3.75 D: Pretty good beer, but it seems pretty hard to not make a good beer with citra.

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.
