Our juiciest beer features ripe mango and tropical hop aroma on the nose followed by a mild bitterness from the Citra and Falconer’s Flight hops and some alcohol warmth to balance out the sweetness of the fresh mango.

22oz bottle pours a hazy brown color with a lot of frothy head. Sharp fruity hop flavors and a bit of a home brew yeasty flavor.

Color is a nice golden with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is a little lacking, with some mango, and not much hops. Taste brings it back home thought with nice citrus and mango on the middle and back. This is worth a try for sure. Works

Bottle shared at the Pig with Dan and Danni. Poured into small snifters. Cloudy medium brown in color with a moderate head. Aroma was good with citrus aromas from the hops and some paper/cardboard. Some pine. The taste was a little less desired with a muted hoppiness and a kind of paper/cardboard overall flavor. Probably some oxidation. A little sweet with moderate carb.

Growler. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity and tropical hops, mango and peach, with spicy and earthy notes, and moderate bitterness. Good stuff.

Transfer from BA review on 6-3-13- Served on tap in a snifter Appearance- The beer is served a deep golden honey color with a small just off white head. The head has a good level of retention slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is bready and hoppy. The hop is mainly of a citrus nature with grapefruit and lemon, but has other smells of a earthy hop as well. Mixed with the hop and the bread are some notes of tropical fruits (tangerine, mango and papaya) giving it a nice sweet and hoppy aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet fruit flavor of tangerine, mango and papaya with some caramel sweetness as well. At the start the tangerine dominates the sweeter fruit flavors, but this changes more toward the end. Upfront there is also a bit of breadiness that fades as the flavor advances, with a hop flavor of a citrus grapefruit upfront as well. At the start the hop is more on the mild side, but this changes more toward the middle and the end of the taste as the grapefruit hop intensifies in nature and is joined by a bit of an earthy flavor. The earthy and grapefruit hop make a nice combo that at the end come with the mango sweetness now overtaking the tangerine. At the finish the total combination of transitions results in a rather bitter hoppy but fruity flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that was very average. It is quite nice for the style as it nicely complemented both the fruit and hop flavors of the brew. Overall- A rather tasty IPA overall with a good fruitiness but a nice bitterness as well. Well worth a try.

Bomber thanks to trade with mikericm! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet fruity tropical notes, mango and orange, hints of caramel malt underneath. Taste is more balanced toward the malt, but still tropical sweetness, bittersweet finish. A bit of a boozy burn, mild carbonation, pretty darn nice.

2014-08-16. Lightly hazy yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasant, lightly fruity with touches of lemon. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout. Light lemon and some minerality. Smooth average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent, on the light side overall but nice. Growler at Campground Brewdown
