Ultra murky gold, heavy lacing, overall oily. Nose is mango, duh, soft citrus with light botanical hops. Flavor is more balanced, light grain mid, dough and mango finish with. Thin and sticky. Delectably delicate, but one-note.

growler from tom10101, many thanks! cloudy pale yellow with a small white head, some retention and lacing. mango upfront (surprise!), tropical and citrus fruitiness, touch of grass and pine, nice clean pale malts, but almost cloying remaining sugars. average to soft carbonation, light to medium body, very juicy, and sweet, but nice tropical finish. nice offering!

Pours hazy blond/whitish. Some lacing. Aroma is of intense mang, citrus. taste is of mango (crazy), citrus, bitterness, some residual sugar. Palate: Ligth body. Overall: I’m a mango fan, so I find this one pretty good. Refreshing too.

Growler shared by tom10101, thanks again for all the good beer! Pours a cloudy orange with an OK white head that leaves some lacings. Aroma is fully tropical, like a good fruit salad. It is also quite piny, overall one of the best IIPA aroma I have yet to smell (but I might be overenthusiast, just got back my nose from the cold). Taste is too sweet and malty, I just hope it was more like the nose. Flavors of mangoes are to be found but it is not upfront at all. Overall a good 2xIPA, not a great one.

Growler (1 L) 6 days old. Thanks to Sarge3130 for this one! Glowing yellow with a small white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is incredibly intense (almost hypnotizing) mango along with touches of other citrus and underlying malt. Taste is moderately sweet with mango (far less than in the aroma), citrus, slight malt and some residual sugar in the finish. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Very good beer. The sugar isn’t cloying, but it make the beer less drinkable.

Tap at tired Hands. Pours full haze glowing light straw. Medium meringue foam. Spotty lace. Nose is doggy, puppy breath, fresh under ripe mango. Taste is quite bitter, squashy, mild sugar, lots of nz style hop bitterness. Juicy, rich. Nice. Palate is denser, almost nutty bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Growler shared by tom10101. thanks a lot! Pours a cloudy yellow with small head a little lacing. Aroma has lots of mango, pineapple, grassy hops, grapefruits. Taste is full of hops, mangos, grapefruits rines. There is a little sugar that makes it a little less drinkable. Still a very good beer.

Draft at TH with Alan, pours cloudy yellow golden with creamy full head and amazing lacing. Aromas and flavor are beautiful mango, melons, citrus fuel, grass, tang, and light malts. Smooth as shit on the palate with a light bitter finish. Medium body. One of the best TH i have tried lately.

Great IPA here. Aroma is mango, citrus rind, peaches, fresh cut grass, and biscuits. Taste is tons of grapefruit rind and a bit of bitterness. Mango is actually very subtle in the taste but still there. Lightly sweet and quite bitter. Great stuff.
