Our Monkey’s Fist Mango IPA is the first IPA we’ve made, and it was so popular after the first brew that we’ve added it to our core production schedule. The beer combines five different types of malts to give the beer a sweeter malt flavor. Two types of hops were used to add the slightest taste of bitterness, and copious amounts of Citra hops provide the mango nose on the beer. This beer is continuously hopped to bring out extra flavor from the hops, and later dry hopped to produce the fruity nose.

The mango complements the beer well...I don’t like fruity beers. For an IPA it seemed under-hopped. It was a very smooth drinking beer that easily complements a meal or can be enjoyed on it’s own.

Vom Faß in der neuen Slow Boat Brewery, Sanlitun South Road, Peking (6,2 %). - Sattes Orangegelb, schön trüb. - In der Nase kräftige süße Mango und Anklänge an reife Tropenfrucht. - Im Antrunk weiche Mango und runde Nadelwald-Herbe, die im weiteren Verlauf stärker wird und einen kräftig harzig-bitteren Abgang mündet. Mild rezent, sahnig weich im Mund. - Simples aber schön rundes, kräftig bitteres IPA, das auf dem Gegensatz von Mango und Harz aufgebaut ist.

On tap at the brewery tap. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Fruity mango hop pine aroma. Sweet finish.

another dodgy batch, the resinous hops are there but that chlorine taint makes it all but undrinkable (though nowehere near as horrible as the spring bock). slightly hazy pale amber. I think there’s a decent beer under there somewhere - shame.
