3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy and orange with a medium white head. Aroma is mango all day long. Maybe a little pineapple aroma. Taste is fruity sweet mango up front that very quickly and surprisingly goes into an earthy (almost malty) hoppy bitterness all the way through the finish. Its not a heavy bitterness, but an insistent one. Very interesting and not over the top.

Pours a very hazy golden orange color with white head. Lots of citrus in the nose, slight hints of mango, lots of fruity esters. Moderate hop bitterness in the flavor. Citrus and piney hops are dominant, really not getting the mango in this but it’s very tasty. Would rate higher if it wasn’t supposed to be a "mango" IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light bread and caramel on the nose a touch of floral and citrus hops as well as light mango. Orange brown amber pour thin head and lace. Soft mango, a little caramel, mango again and then floral/citrus hops linger. Hops didnt stand out as very flavorful, mostly just bitter. Some grapefruit showed up as it warmed. Mango is light throughout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of the IPA day celebration at CCB. Pours a copper orange color on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit - sweet mango and citrus - and nice piney resin from the hops. Taste follows suit, with a great spiciness from the mixture of the mango and hops. Missed out on the mango habanero version, sure it would have been fantastic, but this is still pretty solid for a fruit IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Fruit in the Room 2010. Profile type de la Jai Alai le tout avec un de mes fruits exotiques préférés. Mangue est présente sans être pour cela trop au top. Un bon traitement de cette bière qui montre encore une fois son côté versatile pour le côté tropical. La mangue n’est certainement pas trop en avant et reste discrète et juste assez pour laisser le profile IPA faire son effet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notes, RNH cask. I enjoyed the balance of tropical fruit, light citrus and pine hops with a bit of resin and sticky green. Pour from cask was nice too, mellow carbonation and really drinkable. Not an overload of mango but got that hint of tropical fruit flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Rattle n Hum. Poured very cloudy dark amber. Sweet mango nose and nice mango notes and solid hops. Some sweetness with a decent finish. Very drinkable for 7.5 percent. A nice change in an India Pale Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Fruit in the Room party at Cigar City. Pours a mostly clear, dark golden orange color and topped by a small white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. Some sudsy lacing is left behind on the glass. The aroma is very tropical in nature showing fresh mango, orange, and grapefruit all over a toasted toffee and sweet bread malt base to go along with ample hop bitterness. The flavor follows suit and strikes a nice balance between the bright, juicy mango, orange, and grapefruit hops and the sweet, toasted toffee malt base. This one is a touch a sweeter with a much bigger tropical fruit character than the base Jai Alai. Medium bodied, smooth with balanced carbonation that leads to a slightly dry and bitter citrus hop finish. This is a really nice addition to the base Jai Alai ipa. Good stuff.
