Surprisingly refreshing with a tropical kick. Poured light amber with a small head. I was not aware of the mango infusion until after the first sip. I was a delicious surprise. A choice beer for the summer and a sure crowd pleaser.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours light golden/copper with a foamy white head. Strong, sweet, and fruity, almost couch syrupy aroma of mango and apricot. Not much going on the flavor but some watered down tropical fruit juice, like a diluted jolly rancher. Palate is equally as watery with no real finish. Nothing but watery fruit flavored candy going on here, very disappointing.

12 oz bottle @ The linkery, beer 2 birthday. Pours gold yellow with a slight thin ring of a head. Aroma is very mango centric. Taste is also full of mangos and is good at first but damn that mango gets overwhelming quick. Worth a try but not much more.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
The pour is pretty standard, straw colour with a fizzy white head. The aroma is insanely sweet, most resembling fruit snacks, like fruit role up. There must be some sort of pear concentrate and ton of sugar in this waste. The flavour isnít as sweet, but that doesnít say much. The candied fruit sweetness masks the presence of malts and hops. The finish is hoppy as advertised, as much as it is metallic and sour. The palate VERY watery. This was a poorly executed summer beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Poured a meidum and cyrstal clear golden color with an average sized white head. Some funky fruity aroma going on. I canít quite place the fruits though (maybe some pomegranate and definitely some peaches & apricots). Lighter tastes of the same fruitiness. I would have pegged this as a fruit beer and not an APA. I feel ripped off, not only did this taste like a Fruit Beer, it wasnít even brewed in the Virgin Islands!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Warm golden, slightly hacy and a moderate head. The aroma has a lot of exotic fruits, I get notes of passion fruit, kiwi, mango and quite a few more. The flavour have the same fruits and a nice dry, hoppy finish. The exotic fruits are a bit too perfumed on a cold February evening in Thisted, but Iím sure itíll be much more charming and nice in the tropical sun. Thanks to Lisbeth and Mogens for bringing this one back to me!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I am much more fond of this beer than the other raters. The Pale Ale label is a bit misleading. There is really no hoppyness at all. But the smell is amazing, peachy/apricotty unlike what the label says - mango. Very little head, color is slightly reddish Amber hue. The label says Stl Johnís brewers but I guess Shipyard bought them or distributes them. Extraordinarily interesting beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12oz bottle, best by 6/07) Medium off-white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film atop the crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is fruity sweet -- mango/apricot. Taste is medium sweet, apricot, some earthy, light seltzer -- quite muted compared to the aroma. Light-medium body, light crispness.
