This beer is a fine interpretation of a fruit infused IPA, and it's also the perfect craft beer for those who want a refreshing beer without getting drunk. Perfect for the ballpark or picnics
Looks: Somewhere between yellow and copper. Nice soapy head
Aroma: Blows me away with fruit. Popped the top and you can smell the fruit a mile away. Bringing it in closer you get citrusy and floral notes
Taste: Lots of mango (shocker). Citrus and a very subtle sweetness to balance it out. A little bitter bite on the finish
Feel: For a beer that's less than 4 percent, it was not too thin. It was smooth. Good carbonation
I've had 6 percent beers that weren't as flavorful. This isn't a bad beer at all and I'm quite glad I picked up an 8 pack of this

Pours golden yellow with decent foamy head and medium lacing. Smells wonderful, loads of hops and mango with a light floral mix. Taste is awesome, this is a perfect mix of mango and hops, its not overdone, just a nice mix of fruit but still solid hoppy beer flavors. Getting a little honey flavors and floral sweetness, the finish is light and mild carbonation. Overall a great beer for long day in pool or at party outside, very nice!

Drinking straight from the can.
Initial feel is very thick
As with and IPA the hops are very defiant
The aftertaste is the best part.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Lagunitas mason glass

L: Clear medium golden copper pour. Two fingers of foamy white head. Great lacing.

S: Lots of mango and fruit... sweet and bready. Mild citrus.

T/F: This one definitely tends to the juicy side of things. Mango clearly present... more than in many supposed 'mango' IPA's. Tropical fruits and mild citrus are the prominent flavors with more malt richness than expected. Thin in body which was a given with the sub 4% ABV. Finish is almost caramel sweetness.

O: For a mango Session IPA... very not bad, and up to Ballast Point's usual quality. Not one I'd reach for often, but if you're looking for a low ABV beer that you can drink a lot of this one is way better than your typical light fare.

Clear dark golden color with slightly off-white head. Aroma is really sweet and fruity with some tropical bubblegum notes. Taste follows with the tropical bubblegum but then it gets quite watery with a dry, bitter grapefruit finish and aftertaste. Light body but feels really smooth on the palate. Overall it's quite aromatic and fruity but the taste falls a bit short.

From a 12oz can. Pours a pleasant copper-amber color with a light head that quickly dissipates. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose mixed with a little Juicey Fruit sweetness. Palate is very similar but with a nice hoppy bitter finish. With a very low abv, this is the perfect session pale ale -- lots of flavor to spare. Terrific.

Sweet malts, mango and citrus. Dry finish with a bitter pine linger. Light body with higher carbonation.
