Cask at Beach Brewing and via growler. Growler of cask conditioned Hammerhead IPA with fresh mangoes and habanero peppers. Hazy amber pour with a short white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly citrusy up front with a touch of sweetness that is most likely from the mango fruit. Taste is sweet malt, fruit notes, citrus hops, and floral hops with a touch of the spice from the peppers. Body is medium with a soft, creamy overall feel and light bubbly carbonation. During the finish, the heat from the habanero peppers comes through and leaves a little bite but there is still plenty of fresh mango, citrus fruit, floral hops and sweet malt to go around. Nice experiment!
