Notes / Commercial Description:
Scratch #58 is collaboration between Tröegs brewers along with Troy Gadbury and Brad Moyer, winners of a homebrew contest sponsored by Al’s of Hampden. This Triple Mango IPA is bold, brazen and over-the-top. Unfiltered and highly-carbonated (for killer hop burps), Scratch 58 measures in at 125 IBU’s and 10.8% ABV. With a spicy mango nose and an intense overripe grapefruit flavor, we recommend this beer as the grand finale to your day as it overwhelms even the most-hoppy beers.

Growler to Bruery Tulip

Thanks to TroyG2352

App- A darker side of orange mixed in with some yellows and golds. Had a nice fluffy white head and didnt leave a lot of cling.

Smell- Big aromatics on this one. Big citrus notes with some bitter and a lot of Mango's behind it. Had a soft earthy note as well.

Taste- It had faded a bit and I expected that going from keg to growler and then across the US but still had a pretty good layer of flavor. The citrus comes in 1st with some good malty backbone and then a medium bitter. The ABV is hidden pretty well on this one.

Mouth- A full medium body with a medium high carbonation. Left some residual fruit and hoppy & malt flavors.

Drink- Pretty tasty of a beer. Slightly faded but still good none the less. I liked it but just like Arck angel a bit more.

Growler shared by Michael, thanks. Beer is orange and hazy with a thin off whtie head of small bubbles, some lacing, low carbonation, low retention.

Aroma is diacetyl and butter, some mango and mild hops, not appealing.

Gross, beer is creamy and sweet with fruit, mild bitterness on the backend but the flavors are dominated by this oxidized earthy buttery mess. Not a repeat.

Pours a cloudy orange with about two fingers of fluffy white head that remains throughout most of the beer.

The scent is full of citrus fruits with notes of pine.

The taste is of citrus, orange, mango, some notes of lemon. Lightly bitter piney hops are present. The alcohol is hardley present for the high abv.

Medium body, a somewhat creamy feel, moderate carbonation.

This was a very good DIPA, lots of great flavor and masks the high abv well making it very easy to drink.

A - The body was very dense and had a glowing, burnt orange characteristic to it...the head stood two fingers tall upon pouring, but the white head faded quickly to just a bubbly ring

S - Pretty overpowering with a lot of citrus and alcohol...the mangoes are light in aroma but they do pair with grapefruit and orange aromas...the fruit is very fleshy

T - This one is quite bitter...the bitterness and alcohol presence really cover up the full fruit flavors...they are there but not as strong and juicy as they could can pick up some of the fleshiness of the fruit, but to pinpoint the actual flavor is pretty finishes bitter with a trace of warm alcohol

M - Medium bodied...some thickness to it...syrupy, oily, lots of bitterness...warm alcohol burn...the best part of this beer

O - I was really looking forward to trying this one, but it came up short in my expectations...the fruit was never given a full chance on showing it's characteristics...there is a pronounced bitterness and alcohol presence that take over the whole beer

Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served in a Troegs tulip.

Pours a very hazy golden-orange color with a short white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries a good dose of mango and some faint tropical and citrus hops. The flavor is a bit odd. There's mango and hops, but an add sweetness and bitterness pervades the brew, and not in a good and hoppy sort of way. Medium body with a lot of extra depth. Not crisp and dry, as a hoppy beer should be. Just okay.

From 03/09/12 notes. Growler shared by yourefragile; thanks Michael. Poured into a Portsmouth tulip.

a - Pours a murky bright orange color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, mango, tropical fruit, pine hops, and fruity malts. Not a ton of tropical fruity but it is there, pretty nice.

t - Tastes of pine hops, citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, pineapple, mango. Taste is lightly bitter...less tropical fruit then the nose.

m - Moderate carbonation and medium body. Some bitterness in the taste.

o - Overall a decent DIPA from Troegs. High alcohol which you can tell, and some tropical fruit though it isn't too strong. Worth checking out.

Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer appears very hazy and orange colored with a quarter inch of sticky off white head. The aroma is quite nice - easily the best aspect of the beer. Tropical fruits, hops, light pine. The taste doesn't live up to the promise of the scent, but still, this is a good beer. A lot of bitterness in the finish with some dryness. Hard to believe this is nearly 11% abv. Overall, a solid IPA. I would have this again.

I had this on-tap the other day at the Troegs brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a very, very cloudy amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass with a small layer in the middle.

Smell: Light and sweet malt with some citrus hops and mango. I'm picking up more malt than I would have guessed, but it all works quite nicely.

Taste: Light and sweet up front with citrus peel hop bitterness building towards the finish. The finish is quite bitter with a strong presence from the mango. I would have liked the bitterness to be a bit smoother and less grating.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a hint of chalkiness. The carbonation is smooth and tingly with a dry finish.

Overall: The mango mixed very well with the rest of the flavors. This isn't a perfect beer, but I enjoyed it. I know the style is harsh, but this one could have backed off just a tad and it wouldn't have hurt anything.
