3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tropical floral hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Draft to taster (in a full-sized glass) at the brewery. Looks good; a hazy burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells good; lots of mango with some hops. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Damn good beer.

On tap at the brewpub. It pours up deep copper with slight haze and off white head. The aroma offers up big rich mango like tropical fruitiness that is nuanced by a bit of resiny hops. The taste is yummy crisp fresh rich mango followed by citrus hop bitterness. The taste stays that way with a pleasing amount of mango going from front to back. Yet another one I could literally just drink this all day long.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by umr_urgefan- thanks again, Paul! Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma of mango and lots of it, along with sweet malts, peach, and pine resin. The flavor has mostly mango notes, as well, with some floral notes, peach, sweet malts, and resin. Light-medium bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel that has a little bitterness on the back and moderate carbonation. Stay away if you don’t like mango, but I do so I liked this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The only aroma I’m able to pull from the glass is mango, and that’s more than good enough for me. This is the most mango I’ve smelled in a beer – from anyone, anywhere – and I love me some mango. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is far less bitter and far more fruity than their base FYA or their Ruby Red IPA. Loads of mango here, but not at all a sweet beer. Balanced nicely. Crisp, fruity, refreshing finish. One of the better fruit-treated APAs or IPAs I’ve ever tried. Right on, guys!

6/16/12. Bottle at the Cajun Sourfest. Big mango aroma, but it reminds me of soap or shampoo. Hoppy flavor that complements the mango but it still reminds me of soap.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright gold with a thick head that retains. Aroma of mangos and all mangos. Taste follows but a bit of the hops come forward. Mango dominates, I would have liked it to coexist with the hops not destroy them. Not a bad fruit beer but not a strong ipa

Draft at the source. Cloudy orange color, thick white head, nice lacing. Aroma of mango, peach, apricot. Taste is mango juice, bitter lemon, grapefruit. Very nice, but I like the original better.
