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.

From a twelve ounce can, this is a lightly hazy gold colored brew with a towering white head. The aroma is fruity and flowery, thick with spicy hops. The taste is at once both bitter and sweet, malty, and intense. Not a fan of fruit beers, this one is not overly fruity...it is, however, delicious. Full in body, hoppy, bitter, and interesting. Light fruit throughout, and flavorful.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/1/2017. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy mangoes, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, herbal, woody, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, mangoes, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy mangoes, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, herbal, woody, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of mangoes, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, herbal, wood, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, mangoes, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is a delicious fruited IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, mangoes, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very juicy tasting on both hops and fruit; with a nice malty backbone, without being overly sweet. A very Midwest-style IPA. The Simcoe/Glacier hop profile works perfectly with the mangos. A very enjoyable offering.

Fruit in aroma is mostly from fruity hops. The mango is more in the mix and blended. Other hops are more herbal and weedy. There is also an earthy quality. Light pale malt and no specific sweetness.
Kinda' cloudy and closer to yellow than amber. Sticky, lacy off-white head.
More fruit in the taste with a stronger fruit character mixed in. A mixed presentation of hops with elements noted in the aroma, but with a different mix and presentation. Notable bitterness streak that is not too much but certainly noticable - and it mixes with the hop flavors nicely. Strong on earthy and herbal, certainly on the lingering when it is stronger than the fruit. Mango is really blended rather than dominant, which is kinda' nice. A touch of sweetness shows in time and it's kinda' nice, but the herbal hops and bitterness are still prominent.
Full moderate feel and nicely carbonated.

Pours an effervescent amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Great head retention & lacing

S: Light breadyness & mango, all kind of mute as this warms

T: Breadyness, grassyness, dryness & light tangerine up front. Orange peel, dryness, bready sweetness as this warms. Finishes dry, citrussy with a whiff of mango

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation & great balance

Drinks easy, a nice IPA

Pours a slightly hazy dull gold with thin soapy white head, dots of lace on the glass. Smell: mango smoothie, a little grapefruit and lemon rind. Taste: mango and pineapple juice, orange, lime note, cracker back. Light bodied, a little slick. Not a great IPA by any means, but a nice *real* mango beer that's not a fruited wheat.

12 oz can. Pours clean orange with slight haze and lasting thin white head and scattered lace. Mild tropical fruit aroma. Nicely balanced IPA, mango is there but subtle, lightly sweet with piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel was semi slick could be a little softer. Overall was surprised by this one.
