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!)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750 mL bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville, opened 8/7/14. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of mango, chilis, canned tomatoes. The taste is similar, hot peppers, mango, caramel, canned tomatoes. Medium bodied, slight lingering heat, very disappoint for a Founders beer and disappointing for my 8400th rating.

Bottle received in trade. Pours a nice bright orange. Smells of sweet mango juice with a little pepper on the back. Taste is similar with a great pepper burn on back end. This is an awesome beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes malty notes of cotton candy and sugar cookie, accompanied by chili pepper spiciness. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Unfortunately, the flavor is sickeningly sweet. The habanero component is the best feature of the overly syrupy flavor and sweet, lightly tart finish. Leaves a warm, spicy smoothness behind.

Aroma of mango, taste is mango forward, lots of it, and a nice burn in the throat of habanero. Great tasting fruit beer!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome. This was such a great beer. Starts with a sweet easy to drink mango ale that's full if character. Then it finishes off with a perfect amount of burn.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle shared. Pours a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma was heavy on the peppers but there was still a bit of fruity character able to come through. The taste was spicy heat most of the way, but some sweetness was able to come through every once in awhile. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amazing fruit beer. Tastes just like a bag of mango with chilli on it that you get in the street in Mexico. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Mango is huge and the chilli is awesome. Sweet and spicy finish. Soft carbonation. Tap at Founders event at Churchkey.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
8 ounce bottle pour at ChurchKey poured into a snifter. Pours clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of big mango, tropical fruit, light peppers. Tasting notes of mango, habanero, peppery heat. Medium body with a dry and warm finish. Juicy mouthfeel. Fantastic aroma and probably my favorite mango habanero beer.
