Nice mango and tangerine on the nose. earthy and piney
taste is earthy, very bitter, nice mouthfeel, fruity but I’d call it lemon and grapefruit over mango

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.

Poured from a 32 oz. growler, big thanks to Galen and Abi for bringing this back! Cloudy peach colored pour with a pretty white frothy head. Nose and flavor packs gorgeous mango flavor, peach, apricot, soft citric bitterness, hints of earthy yeast and fruit skin tang. Clean, not astringent even slightly. Absolutely lovely.

Pours a really hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of fruity tropical hops and a ton of mango. Taste follows, fruity and juicy. This is almost unbelievable. Crisp and refreshing. Pretty amazing

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.

Draft. Pours a hazy, straw yellow color with a nice white head. Coming from Minneapolis I am used to Town Halls Mango Mama so I am interested to see what another Mango IPA is like. The nose is slightly fruity with minimal hop notes. The Mango only adds a touch of aroma. The taste is good, not overbearing with fruit or overly sweet. Nice balance with not too much fruit or hops bitterness. For me I’d rather see this get a little more aggressive on the fruit or the hop characteristic as it just falls a little short but it drinks really easily and I found myself ordering it over and over.

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 thanks to Jason on the other site. Pours a glowing, hazy, floatie filled gold with very minimal white head. Looks awesome in the glass. Aroma is mild with tropical notes but not overwhelming mango. Grass, some wet hay and some slight hop presence. Taste is more muted fruit with a nice IPA hoppiness. The mango works better as the beer warms and overall the earthiness of the mango comes through. Almost more of a meaty mango taste than the traditional sugary citrus approach we are used to with the fruit. Overall, a very nicely done beer but I’d put this more on the IPA side than on the Fruit beer side. Not sure I would have known that there was actual mango in this if I didn’t read about it first.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on-tap at the pub.
A - Pours super hazy golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky rings of lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of strong Simcoe hops, bit of pine resin, lots of mango pulp and pale malts and grain.
T - Starts off with a beautiful mix of mango juice and sticky Simcoe hops slowly being joined by the pine sap, pale malt and chewy wheat. Finish is a little chewy with a good amount of fruity bitterness, lingering long after the finish.
M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Fruity, resinous feel with a bit of grain backing it up. No booze is present.
O - This has always been one of their best beers and this batch is no different, it just has never been as good as everyone makes it seem. Worth seeking out but let’s not go overboard.
