On tap into a pint glass.

L---Clear amber color. Thick, off-white head that faded quickly and left a little bit of lacing.

S---Hoppy. Pine & citrus. Orange.

T---Orange, mango, pine.

F---Nice carbonation. Medium bodied.

O---Not as much of a classic IPA as I was hoping, but still pretty good.

Mango is more of a hint than a statement. Otherwise a solid ipa, expected from this first quality brewer. Easy drink, pleasant aftertaste.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops, bready malt and tropical fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and somewhat sour. I would not spent money on this brew.

Good IPA for me. Not too hoppy and has a pleasant mango smell and aftertaste

Adding watery citric fruit to beer is never easy. Some (Carton) do it better than others. As much as I like Troegs, this mango flattens the taste curve of First Cut.
a) Pretty reddish amber body, cloudy, with a short lived short head and a few galaxy arms of lace.
s) Great if you like fruit. Juicy mango, tangerine, fruit punch over a background of hops.
t) Caramel base layered with fruit salad of mango, orange, pineapple. Orange/mango smoothie pre-dominates with a slight floral and earthy set of hops.
f) medium. Crisp despite the sweet main event
o) 2nd place finisher. A bit too sweet for me.

Pours somewhat hazy copper orange with medium head and some lace. Nose is nicely hoppy with fresh tropical and orange notes, and without any artificial notes that I was worried it might have. The taste is refreshing and flavorful. The mango is light and adds to the flavor instead of trying to overpower it. Tangy and fruity, but firmly an IPA. Leaves a light prickly zingy feeling on the tongue. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. I believe it is better than previous versions.
