Poured 16 oz can into snifter. Looks like a glass of pulp-less OJ with a 1.5 white head. Thin collar and small beads of lacing. Aroma is very mango with some grapefruit and citrus notes. The flavor is good mango and some grapefruit. It kinds loses me on the finish with very green bitter hops and pine sap (classic Simco). Feel is medium with good carbonation and a dry finish. A true hope head that enjoys mango should love this beer. I would have enjoyed it even more if it was sweeter and less bitter.

Aside from a slight burn at the end of the sip, this is an exceptional brew.

Hazy, milkshaky, dense. Sweet, fruity, odd.

Smells like diving in a case of freshly-picked fruit somewhere with a tropical climate. Eminently drinkable and enjoyable, it left me craving more.

All the fuss around the late September 2016 release of Mago Tago cans strikes me as overzealous.

From a 16oz can purchased at today's release at Fermentaria. Pours a dense, opaque yellow and looks, well, like a glass of mango juice. Delightful fruit-driven nose, but a very bitter finish which detracts from an otherwise pleasant brew. Perhaps too high an ABV for this style? Under-ripe mangoes used? Too hyper-fresh in terms of hops? Maybe this will mellow with some age. Possibly also just a poor batch.
