Here Comes Mango IPAHere Comes Mango IPA
Notes: This is a delicious and fruity IPA without the punch to the face. The Amarillo and Simcoe hops complement natural mango flavor for a juicy, tropical, well-balanced beer. Originally made for Sublime Alehouse's 4th Anniversary.

Here comes the mango IPA
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange amber color with a billowy white head of three finger height. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of a sweet ripe mango smell that has a very hefty showing of a wheat bread smell. Along with the bready and mango come some lighter aromas of other tropical fruits of papaya and tangerine with hints of a banana and yeast aroma tagging along as well.
Taste – The taste begins sweet mango and tropical fruit flavor of tangerine, papaya, and pineapple. There is a decent showing of a doughy flavor that, as the taste advances, becomes slightly more grainy in nature. All the while there is a slightly yeasty taste present throughout. The hop tastes are very light upfront, being largely masked by the sweet mango and doughy tastes. As the doughy tastes convert to a more grainy taste a little bit the hops start taking on a more pronounced role, with a grapefruit hop becoming quite a bit more noticeable. Toward the end the sweet flavors of mango and papaya really get quite strong and with a little bit of grass, hay, and pine, one is left with a sweet and moderately hopped taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather thick and chewy side with a carbonation level that is average. For the rich fleshy fruit flavors and the doughy and yeasty tastes the thick chewy feel is spot on and makes for a nice thick media to appreciate the rich flavors.
Overall – This is a rather nice and tasty brew overall. Lots of flavor. A little sweet, but still very drinkable. A good one to try!

Hazy, amber hue. Loose off-white fluffy foam. Smells of mango, pineapple, and subtle hop bitters. Taste is lightly hoppy, a gentle mango flavor comes through and stays to the finish. Overall, pretty good but would like a little more mango.

Cloudy amber brew with a long-lasting foam. Fruity aroma but not overtly mango. Maybe in the aftertaste it's more like mango. Tastes like pineapple-banana fruit juice. But then there's the hoppy kick. The hops are quite bitter, like some kind of herbal tea overdose. Starts sweet and fruity, finishes bitter and brutal. Not such a good combination. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Barons Market on West Point Loma.

Slightly cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Really nice big and juicy mango aroma. Taste has nice bitterness upfront with strong citrus and tropical fruit flavors. The straight mango flavor is a bit more subdued in the taste than the nose.
