3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Rattle n Hum: Milky orange with a fading head. Sweet tropical fruit aroma- some candied citruses, peach and of course mango. Slick body- slightly oily and astringent feeling. The flavor has evident tropical fruit qualities. Similar to their papaya, but with a slight vegetal astringency. Resiny finish. Not bad. These tropical fruit IPAs are nice and subtle, so if tasted blind I would only guess they’re an Amarillo bomb, or the use of hops made it taste tropical.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange, white creamy head. Soft tropical fruit and grassy citrus aromas throughout. Bitter dry mango-citric flavors ride a light sweet earthed backbone. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. A great beer to enjoy in full Florida sunshine…

Draft. Pours an amber and copper toned body with a light white head. Hoppy with citrus and i suppose mango tones, dry grass y body with some light pine and a dry bittering grass y finish. A nice dry ipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
cask @ RnH - some tea and syrupy sweet, fresh and citrusy. The fruit tastes like synthetic esters to me. Inferior to the papaya IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at RnH. Pours hazy orange with a white head. The aroma has fresh fruity hops and citrus. The flavor brings a cool tropical fruity sweetness, citric hops, and some sweet malts. Pretty good, but nowhere near as good as the Papaya IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rattle n’ Hum Cigar City event. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma has notes of floral hops, perfume, oak and tropical fruit: it’s obviously mango, but I got more kiwi-strawberry. Subtle tropical kiwi flavor with orange, honey, pine, and perfume. Subtle floral hops finish. A bit syrupy. I like the mango but admittedly hoped for a bit stronger citrus punch.
