Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a heavy chill haze. Poured with a moderate, soapy, white foam with good retention. Medium high caramel malt aroma with medium fruity and flower notes. Medium light bodied with high carbonation. No creaminess or warmth. Medium caramel and fruity mango and fresh dark melon flavors. Medium bitterness through the middle with burnt caramel and fruit flavors to the end. Finished with dry bitterness followed by dark caramel and light fruit aftertaste. Although generally light in body and taste, the caramel malt flavors are pretty strong for the style. Fruitiness is pleasant but would probably shine more nicely in a summer blonde style.

Drank from can. Smell is Mango with a background of pine as with most west coast IPA's. Starts with a nice burst of mango that is far more juicy than most other mango beers but quickly fades into a mixture of pine and grapefruit bitterness. Very thin body. I feel like the beer is a tad all over the place. For how strong the mango is a wish it lasted a little longer before dissipating. On the first couple of sips that bitterness kind of comes out of no where and kicks your tastebuds. Extremely acidic aftertaste lingers as well. Would not be worth it at $15 a sixer.

Nice medium amber color with good clarity, refreshing fruity aroma, taste leaning heavier towards hops resulting in less sweetness from mango. Overall decent but not as balanced as expected.

4/8/17...mostly light, copper colored clear with fast fizzy white foam, mostly settling out. Fruity mango nose, sweet. Opens mango sweet and shifts quickly to a sharp bitter burn. Interesting juxtaposition of sweetness and bitter - jumps back and forth.

Poured from a 12oz can.
L: Pours a clear golden amber with a lasting frothy white head and minor lacing.
S: A fruity nose with a hint of pine and hops.
T: Mango is there with a hoppy bitter finish.
F: Lots of bubbles clean a crisp .
O: Not bad at all super easy drinking on a hot day.
