Poured a cloudy yellow body with minimal head and no lace retention. The aroma combines mango sweetness and a soapy hoppiness. The beer is fuller-bodied, smooth, easy to drink as it combines minimal citric hop bitterness with a juicy, mango sweetness and the finish is even a little plush and juicy.

Cloudy dark orange with a thin blanket.

Aromas of carrot apple juice dominate the nose. The fresh mango really transforms this beer drastically.

Grape, apple, carrot flavors make for a very surprising beer being that is not at all like Murren River, which is a much fruitier, dank IPA. Mango has mellowed out certain aspects, and completely changed others. It does not seem in the same realm of mango that certain hops can impart.

Mango becomes much more readily apparent as it warms. It's a fresh, slightly underripe, (i.e. a bit vegetal) mango, not a sweetened dessert version of mango. Just ultra fresh in both aroma and flavor.
