Flat looking orange in a goblet. Sweet sweet aroma. Flavor is fruit juice, then IPA. As it warms, the mango comes out more than the generic fruit, and a tea flavor starts to appear.

Growler: Thanks, Mike. Cloudy, hazy, muddled orange-amber pour with a nice, foamy eggshell colored cap perched on top. Aroma of grapefruit, soapy pine needles, mango, tropical juice, light oily hop resins, a touch of gummy yeast, & faint bread. Lots of pine, resin, & bitter orange rind up front, sifting towards the more juicy & sweet centerpiece after a few moments. Mango, grass, & some light bubblegummy sweetness. Mild bitterness throughout, with hints of grass, pine, & mild herbaceous tones. Juicy finish with some tropical mango & a touch of slightly sweet biscuity malts. Crisp, relatively clean. Really nice stuff, but I think I prefer regular Masala Mama just a hair.

Growler: The aroma consists of moderate mango, citrus, and a touch of grapefruit. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate mango and lighter citrus. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit with some light lemon peel. It’s light-moderate carbonation. Overall, real tasty and super drinkable.

Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to DalzAle for sharing. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Pretty floral / herbal nose with some tropical fruit. The mango comes through in the flavor a little more. A touch on the sweet side. Some spicy hops. This was good but it didn’t blow me away like I had hoped. I’d like to try this again.

Growler shared at Darkness day. Pours dark golden with minimal head. Smells of strong mango with hops. Taste of bitter mango with smooth finish. Decent beer.

Pours a little more of an orange color than the standard Masala Mama. Aroma is mango, sugariness. Taste is a citrus fruit explosion. Very sweet, sugary, and thick. I can appreciate it but just a bit too sweet for me. I can see doing a small snifter of it and sipping it.

Atom (1403) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On tap at brewpub, pours a clear copper orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mellow sweet hops, and caramel malt. Taste has a huge hit of mango bubble gum flavor, followed my citrus, slight pine, and bitterness. Has this many times before but really digging the fresh mango in this batch!! Always, YUM!!

Draft at the source. From notes. Awesome beer. Tropical and citrus fruits all up in it. Less mango than i was expecting considering the name but a great beer nonetheless.

Part of the infusion series at Town Hall - I think I still prefer the regular Mama. Balanced on the sweetness with a hint of mango, but the bitterness of the hops lingering. Had to make sure this place was still up to par prior to RBSG 2013... spoiler alert - it is still up to par.

Special tap at brewpub - pours a deep orange with a thick head. Aroma is very strong and inviting - lots of mango and thick, resinous citrus hops - yum! Flavor is very mango forward - it doesn’t simply add another dimension to the base brew, and in some ways it is a notch below the regular MM - still full of citrusy hops, but not a lot of malt to offset things. Thick, chewy palate - excellent experience, but I was a bit exhausted after one full glass of this one...
