3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber: A thick creamy head stuck around with nice lacing. The cloudy copper color was much darker than I expected. The flavor was fruity, but a little too sweet and thick. The finish was bitter, but a bit too harsh. It fell a little short in almost every aspect. I had high expectations only to be disappointed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy, deep amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of mangos, some light floral and lightly citrusy hops, and a lot of caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. The malts sort of dominate this beer, and that’s not good for a mango IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pinocchio’s in Media. A hint of the mango and some fruit in the aroma. The flavor has the fruit too, maybe a bit of apricot also. There is a good amount of hops to bal;ance the sweetness. This one grew on me, I wasn’t sure about it on the first sip but I ended up liking it.
