2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Syb Pig bottle share. Snifter. Light color pour with a very small head. Aroma is good with mangos, peppers, herbs and other spices. But the taste...oy vey. Much too sweet with the mangos and then the heat is overwhelming. Not balanced at all. Finish is...well who cares. Drain pour. Only beer from Founders I didn’t like. (Writing this while doing a Breakfast Stout...YUMM!)

Pours bright orange. Mango sweetness persistent throughout. Great balance. The habanero comes through at the end and in force. Great beer! Wish I had more.

Pours orange-amber with a medium off white head. Aroma - you can smell the habaneros almost exclusively. Taste is sweet & fruity with a habanero-esque bite at the finish. The heat lingers.

Strong dominant mango flavor. The habaneros are not too overbearing. Definitely some heat but also some of the fruity flavor of the chile in there.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear light golden pour, slight white head. Beautiful mango nose. Sweet quickly is replaced by warm heat in the back of the mouth. Awesome - a perfect blending of sweet, mango fruit and heat. Might be less heat form sitting around for a few extra months.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-9-14-
Poured from bottle into a snifter
Appearance – The beer pours clear golden color with a dense head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a wonderful level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – A mass of sweet mango greets the nose with some other fruity smells of peach and apricot, as well as a little bit of a pear there as well. Along with these fruity smells are some lighter aromas of a doughy as well as a slightly spicy black pepper and yeasty smell.
Taste – As one may expect from the name the taste begins with a rather potent and sweet mango flavor. With the mango are some bready flavors mixed within. Other fruits soon come to the tongue to join the mango. These fruit flavors of peach, banana, and apricot pale in intensity, but add a nice dimension to the sweetness. Some habanero pepper and a little bit of a grassy taste develop more toward the middle, taming some of the sweetness a tad. While the habanero starts out a bit lighter it really grows in intensity and after the beer is long gone from the tongue, a nice spicy burn mixed with a sweeter mango flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is the thicker and more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. While a slightly higher carbonation may have been a bit better for the big mango and fruit flavors of the brew, the syrupy body is really quite appropriate of the flavors matching well the feel of thick fruit nectar, giving the brew an overall rather appropriate tongue coating are really upping the intensity of the habanero at the end.
Overall – I actually really thought this was a neat combination for a brew. The sweet and spicy hot really played off each other quite well. I could see this brew matching a nice piece of roasted chicken quite nicely. A rather tasty one to try.

750 ml bottle from BMMillsy. Nose is mango, mango, mango, bubblegum, and a hint of the peppers. Clear yellow orange with a small off white head. Flavor is fruity and sweet with a contrasting light heat from the habaneros. Great contrast of sweet and spicy unlike a lot of the peppered beers I have tried. Definitely a great effort, not a "CRIME" (AKA Stone)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Es una cerveza de color ámbar claro, con poca espuma de color blanca.
En nariz presenta notas de picantes con un ligero sabor afrutado, hay notas de maltas caramelos, el sabor es dulce con una grande presencia de mango, el habanero pronto entra en acción, impartiendo un intenso sabor a picante que luego da paso a un equilibro entre el dulzor frutal tropical e intenso sabor a picante.
El final es largo y afrutado, con un toque de habanero. Aun así es una buena cerveza.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with Man Night. Aroma is mango syrup, light pepper, and peaches. Pours orange-peach with light carbonation and a small head. Taste is sweet fruit forward: apricot, mango, peach, with a noticable habenero bitterness behind it. Light citrus hop. Mouthfeel is oily and greasy sticky followed by a significant slow burn of spice. By the end of the glass, you know you’ve been burnt. Nice balance of sweet and spice. I was expecting this to be more harsh.

[5634-20130816] Bottle. Mango tropical fruit aroma. Clear, light copper body with a quick foamy off-white head. Spiced sweet mango fruit flavour. Medium body has quite a hot kick in the finish. Not my cuppa but interesting to try. (5/3/4/1/8) 2.1
