COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
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

Cybercat (3279) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut with a fairly thick buff head. Hoppy aroma has a definite overtone of mango. Flavor has a hoppy, woody, bitter core and adds on mango plus a little malt and a hint of smoky caramel. Texture is fairly firm and fizzy, leaving a hoppy and wood-bitter finish with more than a trace of mango. Different, satisfying, tasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that left exceptional lacing. The aroma was bitter and dryish with grapefruit and mango. The flavor was bitter and tangy grapefruit, mango, a dry middle then vague tropical fruit and a hint of toasted caramel. Long dry and bitter grapefruit and mango finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

thornecb (4367) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours dark bronze into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Caramel and toffee aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and mango upfront turning to mango before the lasting bitter pith finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Draft at Smiling Chameleon. Pours dark orange with an inch of white foam. Has a bit of fruit on the nose. The mango’s kind of faint on the tongue. Has some solid grapefruit and some nice bitterness on the finish. Solid IPA.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Cloudy amber pour with a small off-white head. Bitter, hoppy, and a hint of mango aromas. Taste is very dry and I didn’t like it at first. After it warmed a bit, I think it softened some and it became more enjoyable. Not my favorite, but very solid.
