I absolutely loved this beer! I’m trying to find it in the case, but can’t find it anywhere.
I had this beer at the White Rose in York, PA in a tall pilsner (draft).
I do admit I enjoy citrus fruit flavored beers and this was awesome.
The aroma and appearance were both on point. I thought the taste was outstanding. Basically, because it tasted so good to me I rated it so highly. Some beer snobs will probably shoot this down, but at 7+% and delicious for all occasions, I rated it tops! AmericanHobo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2014
An interesting IPA orangish red pour mango aroma comes instantly through. Mango flavor balances oyt the hopoiness and slight earthy finidh. Very nice!!!! MattMal88 (20) - - MAY 29, 2016
Aroma is very much mango with some hops as well.Taste is mango from start to finish but has some nice hoppiness on the back end. Really good fruit IPA, one of the best ad far as having the fruit be the major player and not the hops. Very good beer overall!

Pours hazy light golden with a nice three finger foamy white head with an aroma of bread and earthy, grassy hops. Tastes of fruit and mango upfront with a tart apple body with a finish of very mildly bitter hops. Sweet mango and delicious tropical fruit upfront with a somewhat dry fizzy finish. The alcohol is mostly hidden. It’s very refreshing the tart mango balances very well with the hops. A good example of a difficult challenge to ferment fruit with hops. There is pineapple also. Well done. Dacrza (1036) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
DATE TASTED: October 31, 2013... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Halloween beer drinking while listening to Bloom-Shipp on the radio... APPEARANCE: dark ruby-brown body; sparse, arching lacing spawned from two-finger off-white head... AROMA: sharp, highly citric hops--a bit of bubblegum and tangerine/mango--flavorful...PALATE: medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel that laces the tongue and warms the throat--full of fortitude...TASTE: fruity, zesty, teeth-rattling hops that coat and clot the mouth with pears, mangoes and apples...OVERALL: more spoils of fantasy sports from Ryan; besides bragging rights, I am treated to some of PA’s better micros, and though Conestoga is not a brewery I’ve sampled before, it will be one I seek bombers from in the future, considering the substantial quality of this fruit bomb of an IPA ...

Great ipa that should be enjoyed by all. Don't let the mango fool you. Subtle hints of mango only enough to leave a flavorful taste in your mouth. Very good IPA.

This is an awesome IPA. Nice citrus hop flavor/aroma with the mango coming through. Sweet malt backbone with a tropical fruitiness coming through. Loved it. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - SEP 13, 2014

Served on tap in a snifter
Appearance- The beer is served a deep golden honey color with a small just off white head. The head has a good level of retention slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is bready and hoppy. The hop is mainly of a citrus nature with grapefruit and lemon, but has other smells of a earthy hop as well. Mixed with the hop and the bread are some notes of tropical fruits (tangerine, mango and papaya) giving it a nice sweet and hoppy aroma overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet fruit flavor of tangerine, mango and papaya with some caramel sweetness as well. At the start the tangerine dominates the sweeter fruit flavors, but this changes more toward the end. Upfront there is also a bit of breadiness that fades as the flavor advances, with a hop flavor of a citrus grapefruit upfront as well. At the start the hop is more on the mild side, but this changes more toward the middle and the end of the taste as the grapefruit hop intensifies in nature and is joined by a bit of an earthy flavor. The earthy and grapefruit hop make a nice combo that at the end come with the mango sweetness now overtaking the tangerine. At the finish the total combination of transitions results in a rather bitter hoppy but fruity flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that was very average. It is quite nice for the style as it nicely complemented both the fruit and hop flavors of the brew.
Overall- A rather tasty IPA overall with a good fruitiness but a nice bitterness as well. Well worth a try. DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at Craft and Capone’s. Pours hazy cooppery with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, ample mango and tropical fruit. Tastes complex, juicy and flavorful, with notes of mango, tangerine, hops, and a complex finish.
