In the bottle. Clear dark gold with a thin white head. HUGE orange mango aroma. Fizzy palate. Chalky finish. Odd fake chemical fruit flavors. Why are Shipyard beers so sucky?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Mr. Beery’s in Sarasota. Light color with a thin top. Big sweet aroma you’d expect. The mango flavor is nice and subtle. This is a refreshing beer on a summer day, but not too light and girly. Good compromise beer. (#3928, 6/25/2010)

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 6/21/10
Aroma: Nose is pretty much all mango flavored candy, and not much else
Appearance: A clear golden-orange color with a small white head and a lot of movement in the glass
Flavor: Taste is sweet up-front, quickly turning into a flavor that can only be described as "off"
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a lot of carbonation causing an overly tingly mouthfeel
It’s like 100 degrees outside today in NJ, so it seemed like as good a day as any for a beach-style beer. Anyway, this is beach-style, but not really much of a beer. I have to admit, I do kinda like the smell of mango candy, but this stuff just tastes off. Skip it.

true to fruit taste with no aroma to speak of. malty with tight small carbonation it is chalky and tangy. mostly apricot and overdone. no depth and no finish. sweet and unsatisfying. grilled a decent kosher hot dog with it.

Sampled on draft at peg’s on our 20th anniversary beer tour. Hazy gold color. smells like mandarin oranges. Tastes like mangoes and mandarins, plus malt and citrus finishing hops. I like it!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light in color and taste. Fruity, mango aroma and taste. I’m not really into fruity beers and this one was too light to enjoy.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold body with a large white head. Lots of apricot. Flavor is sweet and bland, with no hops at all. Light, sweet, thin. Ok for a beach beer. Kinda watery and boring otherwise.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light, orange golden in color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is very fruity, mango makes a big appearance. Flavor is mostly light fruity, with a small hop bite. Finish is sweet and refreshing. I am going to need to try this again in the warmer months.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a thin, white head that has little retention and leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is perfume, potpourri, curacao, peach schnapps. Taste is watered down peach schnapps. A bit oily on the palate. Perfumey, peachy all around. A bit too chemical, artificial, contrived.
