Enjoyed on tap. Poured into an IPA glass.
Pours a copper color with a slightly off-white and creamy head that leaves lots of spotty lacing.
The aroma is quite nice: tropical fruits and citrus and a hint of cracker and sweetness below.
A very tasty beer. Mango, peach and orange up front with a middle hit of sweetness and a finishing, pithy bitter bite. Mango is even more forward as the beer warms a touch.
Mouthfeel is medium and a touch sticky.
Overall, a really good beer that makes you want to go back for more after each sip.

12 oz bottle, best by June. Pours hazy reddish gold with a medium creamy off white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is lots of sweet sugary mangoes.

The flavor is some cardboard malt with some sugary mango and bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, lots of mango in the aroma but the flavor is not well balanced together.

Best beer to have out on the deck. If allowed to warm up a bit, the mango and tropical fruits make their way through with a wonderful grapefruit finish.

Mango isn't over powering, just enough to make this an awesome summer ipa

Bold and hazy orange. Good head with spotty lacing.

Pretty malty aroma. Not much hops in the nose. I was hoping for some tropical fruit but got stiffed. Grainy. Crackers. Light pine.

The mango is more noticeable in the taste, but only in the finish. Nice and fruity. Balanced and more sweet than butter.

Smooth, low carbonation.

Very good, but a let down with the aromatics and depth of the mango.
