3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 5th Annual Real Ale Fest (03/23/13): Murky dark golden color with a medium bone white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Patchy lacing. Aroma of peppers, fruit and malt. Medium body with a peppery character and flavors of bready malt and subtle mango. The finish is mildly spicy with a short pepper burn left behind. Interesting concept but just average overall.

Had this once at the brewery. I don’t remember getting any mango, but I do remember the habenero burn. Nice beer. Always like to see bitch done up a little different.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Ginger Man with a few Ratebeer folks. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big fruity nose and a lot of mango up front, light floral hops, and a good dose of heat in the finish. Lingers quite awhile. This was pretty good, but I really just don’t jive with these hot pepper beers.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Gingerman NYC and shared with puzzl, MaxxDaddy, blipp, and others. Pours a cloudy peach gold color with a white head. Strong mango aroma, the real deal, not artifical at all, Taste starts off as mango but holy crap the habenero kick at the end really burns...and burns.

Tastes like nothing, then tastes like mango, then tastes like the fires of hell. Holy shit, that burn.
