UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 Served on-tap at Alís of Hampden.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh cut mangoís, citric hops, fresh cut grass, dash of sugary sweetness, mildly toasted grain and a bit of booze. The hops and mangoís shine bright throughout.

T - Starts off with the juicy mangoís and pungent citric hops slowly being joined by the sugary sweetness, fresh grass and the grains. Finish is fruity sweet with some light booze burn, not lingering for very long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, sweet feel from start to finish. Booze is hidden pretty well, only really coming to the front fully as it warms up to room temperature.

O - Pretty similar to the old version, maybe a bit more drinkable. The mango is front and center as expected and the hops complement them very well. Glad they are making this one again as it is one of their best IPAís.

2L growler in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of mango, citrusy and resinous and floral hops, pale and light caramel malts, more fruits, and light dough. Flavor the same with lots of mango and hops. Average texture. A solid double IPA.

Damico (2493) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours thick peach juice amber with a sandy colored head, creamy too. Aroma brings juicy pleasant tropical fruit in the nose, tad of sweet booze at the end. Flavors of juicy mango going into bittersweet hops all on a full delicious body.

On tap sampler at Alís of Hampden during vacation from June 19, 2012. I couldnít find Pizza Boy on the site at the time, so thanks to jsmerig to start the beer ratings. First of all, I donít like mango, so I must of ordered this to fill out the sampler. Cloudy orange color without any head. The aroma was total citrus and a super sweet flavor right from the start. Finishes with a bitter, fruit feeling. No idea of the alcohol content till I read it in ratebeer.

Draft at Alís of Hampden. Pours orange with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. Nice floral and fruity notes on the tongue. It hides itís nearly 10% very well. Finish is fairly clean. Solid but not spectacular especially given the style.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Alís of Hampden. Pours a cloudy brown orange with a slight citrus hop aroma. Taste is sweet up front and immediately overpowered by floral hop. The mango comes through slightly in the beginning, but fades as the hops take over.†
