AmEricanbrew (5834) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 19, 2011
San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010. Hazy light amber color/ white head. Floral, citrus, tea leaf aromas. Medium bodied. Very good tropical fruit, pine, floral hop flavors on a solid pale malt base.

A: The pour is a cloudy dark orange color with some scattered white foam on top. This beer is pretty lowly carbonated, so not much head was formed. S: A really surprising amount of fruit on the nose. Good mango notes, but a fair amount of apricot as well. Soon after, the usual powerful pine aromas of Mongo come through. T: Really intense fruitiness comes through as the sip first hits the tongue. Sweet mango flavor just overwhelms the beer at the start, but gives way to the intensely bitter and piney hop character of Mongo before long. Not all that much citrus going on here, but the beer doesn’t really miss it with all the fruit flavor. M: The body is medium with a fairly low level of carbonation. Almost like a cask pour. D: This is what I was hoping for with Mango Mama. Probably the only fruited IPA I’ve had thus far that was actually enjoyable.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
On tap at San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010

Appearance: Pours an amber orange with a thin white film for head.

Aroma: Danky bud, tangerine and tea.

Taste: Heavily steeped, tanic tea. Green mango, subdued bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Oily, astringent and sticky.

Overall: I enjoyed the aromatics far more than the beer itself.

The color was reminiscent of Mongo as was the hop flavor profile. The black tea seemed to be understated and gave the beer a bit drier finish. Hmm kinda different.

Slightly hazy golden amber pour, off-white head. Pine, citrus, bitter hops, grapefruit, mango, lightly sweet fruit, and caramel malt. The Mongo IPA is the dominate flavor, the addition of mango tea is an interesting side note, but is not strong enough to change the beer much.
