A sublime collision of hop bitterness and luscious mango. The addition of orange zest amplifies the mango’s sweet juiciness while also keeping the hops in balance. It’s an IPA sure to saturate your taste buds.

Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange gold pour with a very large frothy white top. Lasting foam and lace. Bittersweet fruity IPA. Orange pith and zest. Mango juice and skin. Apricot fuzz. Kumquats. Golden plums. Fair amount of hop pine resins. Varnish. Solid blonde malts. Honeycomb. Tangerine marmalade. Faint cereal notes. Shortbread. Croissants. Fuller body than expected. Pleasant aroma. Has a gentle fragrant sweetness that is maybe too over balanced by bitter citrus hops.

Hazy blond color with compact head. Lean, mostly dry, bit with minimal residual sweetness; smooth mouthfeel; it’s extremely zesty, from the aroma all the way till the end; some juiciness can be tracked back to the mango; the malt is in the background, but it contributes with a delicate crisp and toffeeish touch; the very strong final bitterness is well appreciated.
Fresh and easily drinkable.
Excellent.

A golden ipa with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with smooth floral hops, grapefruit pulp, fruity esters, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth, well balanced. On tap at Local Tavern, Terminal F, PHL.

big mangoish mouth fairly malty but straight forward. Decent enough, but didn’t blow me away

Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is citrus, mango, and pine. Flavor starts with citrus tangerine and fresh mango followed by grapefruit and pine bitterness.

32oz growler pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a tall light tan head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up soft sweet cantaloupe and bits of mango pieces with sweet malts in the background. The taste delivers a pleasing load of bitter citrusy grapefruit and tangerine like hops and then it gets into a thin river of juicy mango. It maintains a nice citrus hoppy bite as the modest hop juiciness comes and goes right into the finish. Solid IPA.

reebtogi (6488) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Served in 12oz tulip glass at Beer Revolution in Edmonton. Pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mango and citrus with some cereal grains. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a fruity and malty sweetness finishing dry on the palate. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a delicious IPA that I recommend highly to others.

Delightful. A bit too fruity for me but very nice and fresh with a heavy citrus and tropical fruit note. Pours a bright golden orange with a big puffy off white head, moderate carbonation. Nice aroma and bright with big floral and citrus notes. Finish is heavy with fruity, tropical notes. Mango is kind of lost in the frey.
