This beer pours coppery. Smells like tropical fruit. Sort of a candy/artificial mango taste plus grapefruit. It is hoppy enough to even out the candy sweetness that the mango adds. Overall, very easy to drink and wonderful on a hot summer day here in Hawaii.

Pours a lovely Amber color with a finger and a half of off white head, nice retention and lacing.
This smell divine, mango, guava, and passion fruit, and more mango! Light hop presence here but noticeable.
Light malt, mango notes, ending in light bittering hops.
Mouthfeel is rather thin and watery for the style, but given the abv I can't expect too much here.
Overall the taste is good, but the smell and appearance are much better.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a cider glass.
3.25/4.5/4/3.75/4.25
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.
