Poured from a 12 ounce can into a cider glass.

A: Clear copper, mild effervescence, no head.
S: Amazingly fruity with a very distinctive mango (light peach) aroma. A bit candyish/artificial, but not remotely unpleasant. Powerful and one-dimensional.
T: The candy notes persist upfront, and never really disappear, although a brightly dry malt follows with a trace of earthy bitterness. Ballast Point does fruity beers very well. The sweetness is slightly unnerving, but never cloying, and the overall effect is excellent...if you like tropical fruit.
O: Compelling drinking and compelling ABV. If you've ever savored a Jolly Rancher or a session IPA, this is the beer for you!

From a 12 oz. can. I am not going to do this beer justice with a short review but the beer looks beautiful, a generally clear orange/amber with a decent but not long lasting head. Modest lacing on the glass. Smells strong mangos and grapefruit. Tastes like candied mango and orange tootsie pop with a little bitterness. Really enjoying this session IPA! Another well done Ballast Point brew.

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.
