2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Fruity sweet nose, lightly yeasty and with subdued hops. Hazy pale orange body with a goodly amount of carbonation and a soapy white head. Taste sweet with light yeasty-bready undertones emerging in the aftertaste, ginger is there but rather subdued, which is more than can be said about the mango. Alcohol well-hidden, not much in the way of malt or even hops; it might help reputation to brand this as an Amber instead of a pale ale / IPA. Medium body with fizzy carb reminiscent of selzer mixed with water ice, and not entirely clean, but refreshing enough.

I wanted more mango and ginger than it offered, and what it did offer was underwhelming. Maybe if I was super-hot on a steamy day, it would taste good, but it's just okay.

Smells like Chinese food in a glass. Not rating this high because not a great fan but surprisingly it isn't too overwhelming.

A pretty orange-yellow-red color, mild white lace, head...i suppose there was some when she poured, but it was gone by the time it got to the table. Weak aroma of hop, citrus, lemon, orange peel, mango and pine. Flavor provides a punch of fruit causing it to border the line of an IPA that may be a little too sweet. It is balanced however by he hop. Ginger root fights through. Decent, not really sure about all the harsh ratings...I like it.

Transfer from BA review on 3-1-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served light golden colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to give a nice level of lace.
Smell – The aroma is largely bready in nature with hints of tropical fruits of mango, a light orange citrus and some pineapple.
Taste –The taste begins with flavors of a bready malt mixed with a lighter fruit flavor of apricot. As the flavor advances mango and ginger flavors start entering the taste. The mango remains relatively light throughout the taste, but the ginger grows stronger as the taste advances further. In the end the mango comes to the tongue and along with the other flavors of the brew it leaves a slightly spiced and light fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both fitting for the style and are good for the ginger spice and lighter fruit flavors of the brew.
Overall – A decent brew, but nothing all that exciting. It was worth a try, but not one I would likely go back to again and again as the flavors don’t meld together all that well in my opinion.

On tap at Dog & Bull in Croyden - pretty good but I’m not sure about it being an IPA. There was some hop character to it but not too much. Overall though, it was pretty tasty. I’d try it again.

If this tastes like mango and ginger then I’m going to make a beer that tastes like unicorn essence and rainbow perfume. There wasn’t even a hint of either of those two flavors, instead, a non-descript pale ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from wegmans. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a film with uneven bubbles. The aroma has plenty of mango and apple but no ipa notes period. The taste is a sweet and spicy mess.
