3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is like mango puree with a slightly more amber hue. The head is tall and dense with an odd sort of orange hue, decent retention.
Aroma: The aroma is weak, hints of mango show after a long wait for it to warm, the habaneros show through though. Some of the bitterness from the IPA shows though.
Taste: The intro is oranges with a slight mango presence, the habaneros show up by the mid-taste and stay prominently on the tongue for long after the sip, adding a mild heat. The IPA bitterness is mild of grapefruit by the finish, but subdued.
Palate: Full-bodied and mildly carbonated.
Overall: Surprisingly mild considering habaneros, but the mango doesn’t really come through much. A decent effort, a lot more drinkable than expected, but it doesn’t wow me.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a slightly hazy color. Aroma spicy with mangos and fruit. Taste is also quite spicy with a good amount of fruity flavors. Balance is pretty good, better than most "spicy" beers. Some wheat flavors that add some creamy notes. Overall surprisingly good!

Cask at the source. Clodu golden amber color, small off white head. Aroma of pepper, fruit, hay. Tasty, but a bit heavy on the habanero, and a bit light on the mango.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Ginger Man, N.Y., June 1. Pours a super murky peach-copper with an average size long-lasting creamy white head. Mild but nice aroma with a good amount of hops, fruit and some light spice. Flavour also has a good amount of hops along with caramel malt and spices that come through more as you drink it. Medium bodied. Not as spicy or fruity as I’d like, too subtle for me, but still quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Winking Lizard 5th Annual Real Ale Fest on 3/23/13. Cloudy orange pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and pepper. Malty and caramelly flavor with light pepper and tropical fruit before a citrusy finish. Different, but it kinda works.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the brewery...Raging Bitch has such a strong flavor that there’s not a whole lot more. I didn’t really pull the mango, there’s a slight pepperyness to the finish, but it’s not as strong as you would expect from a habanero. Doesn’t really matter though, because a raging bitch cask rocks all on it’s own.
