Exceptional beer. I was pleasantly surprised by the aromas. Overpowering mango aroma with a mango taste to match. Not acidic and easy to drink. The ABV on this one is reasonable at 7%. I was hesitant to try this beer because I hate everything about Wyoming. But I thought I'd give these guys at Melvin a shot and did they hit a home run. An amazing example of an IPA.

overall: will not upset an experienced beer drinker or someone who is looking for something special. The drinkability on this one for the 7% it holds goes down easily. Nice job melvin.

Tasted on tap at Casual Pint in Omaha

L: Straw to the orange side, no sediment. Very light head, and very good lacing with great retention

S: Mango, melon, very tropical but there's a combo of scent I can't quite figure out. Sweet, earthy, but also a tiny dank bite which is throwing me off. Yet it's really very appealing.

T: Smooth mango flavor, citrusy but not acidic. Slight sour aftertaste but fit in well with the experience

M: Light body, carbonation is there but not heavy.

O: I really loved this one. The flavor and smoothness, combined with just the right amount of hops are what drove me to the review. Nothing bad to report here. I purchased the 4-pack cans to see if there is a difference.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

16 ounce can, canned September 18th.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with an ample but not overpowering head of foam despite a less than gentle pour. Lacing is good.

I get aromas of mango, grapefruit citrus, a little bit dank but not too much. By dank I mean light onion. Too much usually puts me off.

The taste is closer to being up my alley than most of the style.

Mango and grapefruit citrus taste is, well, tasty. Dankness/onion is even lower in the taste than the smell. Cracker malt compliments the hops. The hoppiness suggests dry hopping and the finish is rather dry. Very hoppy but not too bitter at all.

The body actually feels on the light side to me. Maybe that's part of the reason that I favour it.

Pretty yummy representation of the style, which I normally have problems getting into. Definitely worth a try if you see it around. Especially this fresh.

this is another excellent hazy one from melvin. i feel like they were late to the hazy ipa game, but have really stormed the scene. this is delicious, a nice mix of hops, and a pretty early and long climax for a mostly dry hopped beer, like they crank right up at the start of the flavor journey and dont fade until the swallow, robust as they go there, but also quite soft and easy to drink, really well crafted and at the pinnacle of freshness right now. also, the cans are sexy, their new tall can aesthetic is amazing, these looks real sharp and modern. lots of stone fruit on this, ripe melon too, and a little oily citrus at the end, a leafy green freshness, but no vegetal hop bite at all, and really clean at the end. must be some white wheat in the mash, this is fluffy and smooth, a little starchy but with the high carbonation really expansive and lively feeling. white peach, green grape, honeydew and french melon, and fresh herbs on the finish, some bitterness but quite light there. almost refreshing as the style goes, highly refined too for a hazy, and yet another exceptional melvin ipa, this is obviously what they do best, but they are killing the hazy ones right now. they are on the top of the heap. dont miss this one, i think this series has a pretty short window before the next one comes out...
