On draft at Libations, Sanford. Poured a clear golden color much like a "normal" IPA, initially thought I was given the wrong beer, but first smell revealed huge mango notes. Easy drinking, but would have preferred a little more hop bite.

a tasty and flavorful brew, a new england hazy type done with mango. it looks real hazy from the can, but generally not that dense, and very frothy and bubbly, holding its held well. i like the mango being either rather minimal in dosage or allowed to ferment down to such a mellow and subtle level here, i get its essence, but this beer is juicy from the hops, not from the mango first, and i think thats cool in a day and age where it seems like everything is over flavored and less beery all the time. in that vein, i like the flavor of the grain being part of it too, not dry hopped over, but encouraged, raw wheat and some oats probably giving it the fullness and cereal touch. hops have some bitterness too, which i am coming to prefer in these. so, this has three things that i love in the style, only subtle fruit, grain i can taste, and a little hop bittering at the end, all of those make this very good. that said, its a little bit unrefined for me, and maybe not fully fresh, the hops dont pop to me as brand new, and definitely seem familiar, the same ingredients here that everyone else is using right now, and the overall beer has an slightly amateur characteristic. a great recipe i think, execution lags just a little bit behind...

Soft yellow and hazy with lots of fine bubbles that are hard to see. Topped with 2 fingers of off white head.

Smells of mangos, pine, pineapple and orange juice.

Tastes of pine, pineapples, dank weed, green leaf, mangos and citrus. Fruit forward.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Got in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Nov 28th, 2018. Well done brew.

L: Hazy golden yellow in color. About a finger of a frothy white cap with generous amounts of residual lacing.
S: Slight notes of mango and some malts but not much else.
T: Full of mango fruity flavor with some lemon and grapefruit notes.
F: Light bodied and medium weight. Refreshing feel but not a fluffy as other NEIPAs.
O: A very enjoyable beer. If you like mango, you'll like this brew. I am very glad to have tried. Cheers!

Pours a golden yellow color with a dense white head. Aroma is a decent amount of tropical hops and a barge full of mango.

The taste is also fruity hops and especially mango. Loads and loads of mango. The mouthfeel is in line with the style, just wish it had a smidge more bite, otherwise this is simply outstanding, IMHO.

If you don’t like mango, avoid this beer at all costs. If you like mango, consider shoving women and children out of your way to acquire it

Notes via stream of consciousness: So this is a NE IPA with mango and lactose. OK. It's light golden in color, yellow I guess, but quite murky. The head is a massive cap of frothy white foam. I couldn't get it all in the glass without waiting for it to settle. So this is supposed to be a juice bomb but I've had brighter "juicy" NE IPAs. I get a kind of a generic tropical fruit in the nose with lots of pineapple rind - not pineapple fruit, but the outside that's quite piney. Some orange, some mango, some apple... it's nice. A little dank, just a little. On to the flavor... well, BAM, there's the juiciness. It actually tastes like juice. What exact kind I don't know, but again I get the mango, and some orange, maybe a bit of peach, and guava. Hmmm, some berry as well. Blueberry? Are there Mosaic hops in here? If you keep looking I'm sure you'll find even more specific fruits, and yet they don't really pop at all except for the mango. And, bonus, that raspy and piney note that's in the aroma doesn't carry over into the flavor. There's just a little bit in the lingering aftertaste along with some mild bitterness. Hmmm, as I'm tasting it now I'm also thinking about the mouthfeel and I think that the lactose gives it a bit more body, and creaminess, and it's very much like a glass of juice in that regard as well. A moderate carbonation level helps with that. It's interesting, it's sweetish, and very fruity, but then in the end it comes out dry. It might not be the best 'juicy" NE IPA I've ever had but it's up there. My only complaint is that for me the lactose seems to stick in my mouth after the first four ounces or so, but other people I've talked to don't seem to have that issue. Worth trying. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, it has excellent head retention and very good lacing.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on July 16, 2018. Brewed with mango and lactose. Look is hazy. Smell and taste is tropical fruit. Feel is luscious.

Pours hazy, light gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is dank herbal hops, mango and guava. Medium-light bodied, moderate carbonation slightly sweet. Makes for an above average dank ipa. Expected more juiciness for a beer with this name. Wanted way more pop. Gets better as it warms.
