A beer most real craft beer aficionados will probably hate on. For me, this is my favorite out of all the Ballast Point brews I've tried.

Some fruity beers are sweet which immediately turns me off. I want the flavor of fruit without the sugary shandy taste. Too many of these sweet fruity beers just taste like cheap wine.

This beer on the other hand, just tastes good. It's NOT sweet. It's a creamy mango taste. It doesn't taste watered down at all. It actually tastes quite bold for a 3.8% abv beer. Very apparent pleasant mango taste and smell. Kinda a vanilla thing goin' on too but mainly tasty mango fun.

With all the mango flavor, this still tastes like beer. It leaves you with a mango taste that then turns bitter, reminding you that you are in fact drinking beer.

This is one of my favorite beers I've tired recently and I see this as something I will consistently drink for years to come.

Exceptional session beer for a fruit IPA lover. Surprising body for a session ale. The smell pops out of the can. Detect a slightly vanilla finish. Pours and retains a good head. Good lacing. Absolutely, my beer of choice for the summer.

on tap at the Miramar brewery tasting room. - poured deep golden hue with creamy off-white head. full clarity. aromas is all mango and hoppy fruitiness. like a mango jello (amazing). taste is herbal and fruity balanced by malt sweetness. right on! mango flavors are there, not overwhelming with subtle bitterness. medium light body, but no watered down sensation (as in some SIPAs), smooth and crisp carbonation. bitterness and fruity flavors explode on the palate before a dry finish with lingering bitterness. - I love this beer! and at 3.8% I can drink these all day. brilliant!
