DCLawyer (2787) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Cask in a snifter at Churchkey. Orange with small offwhite head. Mango and tropical fruit over citrus and pine hops, lite caramel malt. OK, but a bit dank in a bad way.

Thisbisbon cask and has probably been past its prime. That said its not bad. Light mango with all the regular pine hops from the regular version. Amber pour with ok head. Light bitter finish. Cask at Churchkey.

jc1762 (1098) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Cask into a snifter showing dark orange and no head. The nose shows light mango candy (think jolly rancher). The palate is medium bodied. Mango is apparent but lacks a good intensity as the taste of hops interrupts the mango flavors constantly with a light bitterness on the finish.

Travlr (22909) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Cask at Churchkey. Tonights version just says "Mango" so Im entering the rating here in the hops that its more or less the same beer as the powder version. If this rating gets moved to a new entry, well have to move the picture as well. Subtle mango aroma. Taste us bitter tropical fruit. OK.

From notes, consumed 3/25/2013 during CBC Week. 4 oz cask pour at ChurchKey. Honey brown with light off-white head. Aromas of mango, citrus and grapefruit. Tastes of grapefruit, mango, peppery notes. Medium body with a dry finish.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Cask during CBC at Church Key. Orange pour with a small fluffy khaki head. Big tropical fruits in the aroma, mango of course, with some onion hops and other citrus. Sweet candied fruits in the flavor, more mango, and some pale maltiness and caramel. Not really my bag.

jandd1983 (4053) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a clear orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of caramel, floral hops, a little spice and some resin. The taste was of sweet caramel at the start with moderate hops at the finish. Very nice.

nimbleprop (7853) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2013
Sampled at Churchkey during CBC week. On cask. Pours a hazy orange with some creamy, white head. Big nose of flower pollen, citrus, pine, dank hops, sticky fruit. Flavor is sweet, fruity, tropical fruit, malt, pine needles, chewy grains. Sticky finish. I thought the mango distracted a bit from a very lovable base beer.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Cask at Churchkey thanks to nimbleprop. Pours deeper orange, weak foam. Nose is stickier sweet mango, cantaloupe. Not particularly bright or fresh. Taste is stickier candies, thicker cantaloupe and strawberry. Not really fresh mango. Decent alcohol sweetness. Not my style really, but normal Wings isnt my style either.

radagast83 (7637) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Cask at Churchkey. Poured a deep, dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma was pungent hops, with some notes of tropical fruits, but not too much more than I normally would tell from the original. Flavor was tropical fruit notes, with some light fruits and pungent hops. Alcohol is pretty well masked on the finish. An interesting experiment, but doesnt improve on the original.
