Pours your average lite orange, nice aroma of mango, pine, pineapple, taste is citrus, hops, and lite. Would like more bite. But Okay.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw with a nice head; good retention and swaths of lacing

Smell: Very fruity, with cantaloup and mango as well as piney bitterness

Taste: The cantaloup and mango tones lead off, bringing a layer of sweetness but an overwhelming metallic bitterness arrives in the middle and dominates the finish, obliterating the other flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Rather disappointed with this beer as the flavors really clash and leave the more interesting elements in the dust

Nice mango sweetness. The brewer did not go overboard with the fruit. The base IPA is a bit uninspired though. Looks good and has a nice texture. No problem drinking the 6-pack but probably would not buy again.

Poured from a crowler into a pint glass. Pours a clear yellow orangish color, with a nice off white head. Mango aroma comes through in the smell and first taste. The mouthfeel of this beer is very good. A little bitter in the finish. Overall, a nice IPA. I would try it again.

This is literally the only Destihl beer I'd ever order again. I've been trying for years to find one I like so I can support the local brewery. They've done it! I hope they start canning it!

So cloudy and pale orange in color with a slight off-white froth. Aroma of mango, orange, grapefruit and faint perfume.
Bright citrus notes of grapefruit and orange along with pear and mango. Certain florals and faint pine in the finish. Medium and crisp and a bit rough around the edges but all good elsewhere.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a fairly clear yellow orange hue with thin white head.
S: Distinct mango plus peach, orange, and grapefruit. Not complex, but still good.
T: Follows aroma (mango, orange, peach, and grapefruit) plus pine hop note too. Hint of caramel malt.
M: Citrus sweetness, mildly bitter, with a light-medium body.
D: Nice mango IPA. Not complex, but not all beers need to be. Well crafted and very refreshing. Excellent summer brew.
