UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 At Troegs into a goblet. Pour is a haze orange with a lace head. Aroma is a light mango hop. Taste is a strong bitter with a splash of mango. Finish is flat out hoppy bitter. This is a great ale.

This one poured a ridiculously hazy bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of mangos, piney hops, and booze. Flavor was similar a bit too in your face and bitter boozeyness but still interesting and different.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at State Line. Pours a cloudy orange color with two finger bubbly whitish head, with great retention and light lacing. Aroma has tons of mangoes, tropical fruits, herbaceous hops, and lemon zest. Taste starts with a big citric hop bite followed closely by the fresh mango’s. Hints of caramel, pine resin and warm booze help round things out through the middle. Finish is really bitter with a touch of booze, leaving the palate dry long after the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Prickly, resinous, sharp.
