망고의 달콤한 맛이 별로 없어서 아쉬웠음.

Pours a foggy orange with two fingers of off-white head. Head retention is good. Aroma is mango and peach with gnocchi and pesto behind. It smells like an Italian restaurant here in town. Biscuit and bread malts. Flavor profile is mango through and through with potato, and biscuit malts. Mouth feel is medium in consistency with a fuzzy, pulpy feel. Overall, strong mango notes, but off otherwise. It tastes like a local Italian restaurant smells.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color. Nice large thumb length creamy foam head, good retention and thick rings of lacing.
Although there is a hint of citrus, the aroma is dominated by juicy, sweet and ripe mango. There is also a touch of grass and caramel.
The mango flavor is prevalent throughout; its characteristics dry in the mid palate at first, however, juicy and ripe as the drink warms and flavors open up. Hints of orange peel, grapefruit pith and piny hops make this beer less one dimensional. Bitterness is moderate and clean. Malt backbone is firm, chewy and laden with caramel sweetness. The finish is dry, juicy and with a moderate pine resin linger.
Medium bodied with an almost creamy smoothness from the wheat. The moderate carbonation has a nice tingle.
I like how this combined East Coast juiciness with West Coast citrus and earthy hops. Solid IPA.

Canned 02/08/18, opened 4/29/18

The look, smell and feel of this one was all good, but the flavor was overly bitter and almost rancid to me. I tried to let in warm in hopes that it would open up and allow the fruit to come through, but it just became more bitter. Unfortunately this was a drain pour for me.

12 oz can. Pours hazy orange gold with a medium fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is bready malt with sweet tropical fruit and a little resiny hop.

The flavor is lots of sweet tangy tropical fruit with some bready crystal malt and a medium resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice fruity IPA.

My DESTIHL Day CANtinues, wending & winding its way to our finale, which is this beer. I had not really intended to CANduct a brewery horizontal today, but when my earlier plans proved to be unworkable, this seemed like a nice back-up plan of action. You gotta have a plan.

From the CAN: "Unfiltered[-]Enjoy Fresh[-]Keep Refrigerated"; "Support Flavor - Boycott Bland (tm)"; "‘Amra’ (Sanskrit for Mango) intertwines fruity hop characters of a west coast-style IPA with the fruitiness of juicy mangos, resulting in an elaborate and psychedelic tapestry of flavors that were absolutely destined for each other in this beer. Cheers!"

The end beCAN with a Crack! of the vent, followed by a slow. gentle Glug. I know that it read as "Unfiltered", but I like clarity & I remain hopeful at all times. My efforts seemed to have paid dividends as I got a glassful of oh-so-slightly-hazy Yellow-Golden colored (SRM = 4 - 5) beer & while it may not have enticed The Gelt Gang, it looked pretty good to me. Nose smelled very tropical, not just of mango, but also of pineapple & underlain with a biscuity maltiness. It was like preserves spread on toast in the tropics. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but big on my tongue. The taste did not make the current mistake of being so tropical as to lose its bitterness (55 IBUs), since bitter is a hallmark of the style. Instead, it left a slightly grapefruit citrusiness in place while definitely not hiding the mango. I was really digging this, to the point that it was nearly half gone before I even realized it! At 6.5% ABV, this might be tough to spend a day with on the beach, but it would definitely get a seat at my table or in my cooler. I really liked the interplay between the malt and hops in this one since it was neither too bitter (yes, there is such a thing) nor too sweet (I dislike that in an AIPA), but just right with a toasty, biscuity flavor to shore it all up. Finish was dry, but appropriately dry, not gasping or puckering. I really could drink this on a regular basis.

On tap. Poured out a clear, golden color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of mango, citrus and toasted caramel. Nice sweet mango flavor with citrus, pine and caramel.

-hazy yellow can pour, pretty and bright. Aroma is minimal and of tropical fruit. The flavors are tangerine with detectable mango flavor and some sweetness. The body is light. The hop bitterness is light too.

Amra - Destihl
Mango IPA - 7% abv
Canned 12/27/17 (47 days ago)
Purchased for $2.69 at Monde Market

L - 1 finger offwhite head atop a shimmering orange body.

S - Mango, grass, some booze.

T - All mango sweetness at first. Bitterness follows, but it’s mild. Noticeably sour with each sip. Grassy/dirty middle. Finishes sweet like candy.

F - medium-full syrupy body with low carb.

O - I wish they had carried through with the “West Coast IPA” on the label. There isn’t enough bitterness here to balance the sweetness of the fruit and malts. That being said, I’m enjoying each sip of this.

Very nice mango/hop aroma. The mango pairs really well with the hops. Definitely west coast style. Not too bitter, smooth finish with lots of mango and earthy hops. Would drink again, probably deserves at least a 4/5

A thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some fruits. Taste is oranges, malts, hints of mango, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is decent, but nothing special.

Riding the mango train today. This one a West Coast Style IPA from DESTIHL out of a 12oz can dated 7/17/17. Clean pour with an inviting mango nose. Taste is classic West Coast with a stone fruit kicker. Good stuff, DESTIHL. I'd drink more if this.
