Thanks to dachshunddude for this one!

A: Murky deep gold/amber color. Nice white head on it.
S: Oh my. Burst of mango was the first thing I could smell. Real mango, not artificial. Some spices (not exactly habanero, smells more like sweet/spicy Mexican candy, almost like tamarind.) Some citrusy notes in there as well.
T: Starts out with sweet malts and mango. A tiny bit of citrus from the hops I'm guessing, followed by heat. It's fairly intense heat. Luckily, I like spicy stuff. Whenever I take a sip and feel the heat I immediately want more. More of that sweet mango juice from the beginning. Overall it reminds me of the spicy mango Mexican candy from my youth, very awesome flavor.
M: Light/medium bodied with good carbonation. Mouth is left tingling from the habanero.
O: This is one amazing beer. It is spot-on for what they were trying to accomplish. I could drink this beer for days. Paired this with tacos and tequila.

poured fresh from today's growler release into snifter

appearance: bronzy gold, looks like your typical ipa, some nice carb bubbles noticeable in middle and on top, thin white head, medium opacity

aroma: wow, this smells like a real mango. not like mango flavoring or juice, like if you picked up a real mango at the store and smelled it. a little light on the nose, but still amazing. some soft grassy notes, maybe some lemon/citrusy smells as well from the hops

palate: farily light bodied, very smooth, cant notice the carbonation or booze, the habanero leaves the mouth tingling, which is awesome but it dominates a bit making it less drinkable

taste: starts out sweet and very mango-y with some lemons, very little hop characteristic to the flavor, but then the flavoring turns on you and gets hot and spicy, and is kind of overpowering.. the big downside is it leaves kind of a weird aftertaste. kind of gritty and spicy.

overall: ive not had another beer like this one. its good, very unique, and would go over great for tasting parties. but the spiciness is a bit over-powering, and the aftertaste kind of distracts from the upfront sweet mango-ness. also, i wish it had a bit more hop kick to it, or the sweet flavors lasted longer.
