A rose gold, slightly hazy, bright white head, light lacing

S big bright vibrant fresh mango, a little spicy, pine resin, citrus hops,

T starts out very smooth with a sweet fresh vibrant mango. The middle is a a mix of mango that is abruptly stopped by a serious spiciness! It's super spicy! Oh e burn! The ending is a mix of citrus, mango, light pine hops and some heavy serious habanero burn! The after taste is like eating a habanero slice! It's fucking awesome!

M crisp, sharp and great carbonation! Big burn from the peppers!

O this beer is fucking awesome! A lot of fun, a lot of flavors! The sweet mango and the super spicy peppers are great together and makes it interesting and playful. The most fun I've had with flavors in a beer!

Medium shade of orange amber. Served with a moderate sized off white head. M
Slight haze. Light lacing. Smell is decent, consisting of orange, caramel malts, citrus, and a moderate vegetal quality. There is some light mango, but it doesn't dominate. Taste is nice. Light sweetness on the front end. Citrus mango, light malts. Habanero comes through strong on the backend offering up bright citrus notes and an appreciable, but tolerable heat. Medium bodied, good carb, moderate pepper heat. Bitterness is there, but its lost in the mix (though its not necessarily missed)

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.
