COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The inspiration for Virgin Islands Pale Ale came when the beer’s creators, Kevin Chipman and Chirag ’Cheech’ Vyas, began home brewing on the island of St. John. Unsatisfied with the choices of mass produced, bland, watered down beer, the two set out to brew ales that had smoother flavors and a distinct hop finish. After brewing several batches of quality American and European style beers they developed a recipe that captured the essence and taste of the Caribbean. The finished brew, a light ale with a subtle exotic fruit nose and mild hop finish, is the ideal flavor for our tropical climate. Virgin Islands Pale Ale was born. Having created a perfect island ale recipe, the two would like to share their new brew with the Virgin Islands and its visitors. Whether you are enjoying a sunset, celebrating an island happy hour, or having a relaxing dinner, Virgin Islands Pale Ale is the refreshing beer to enjoy any moment.

This is a great ale for a hot day. Was pleasantly surprised by the subtle mango flavor, not realizing it was a "mango" beer before tasting. If you like Magic Hat #9 you will like this better. If you dont like #9, I still think you should give it a try.

Mild and fruity. Pours golden with a dense aroma. Mango and tropical fruit, a little grassy hops and overall has a decent balance.

Pours a light yellow/orange color with a fruit aroma. A thin beer with not so complex flavoring. Mango flavor up front that quickly disappeared.

Gyllengul öl med ett lätt vitt skum. Klara inslag av mango i både doft och smak. Lättare beska. Endimensionell.

Bottle pour hazy avg gold with thin white head. Nose big mango, slight metallic, some citrus. Taste similar to nose with mostly mango and fruit juice. Reasonable refreshing after day of hiking and snorkeling.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of lemon, orange, mango, grassy malt, earthy hop and yeast. Flavor is earthy, pale hop, and artificial tropical fruits. Mildly bitter, too sweet but vastly smooth.

3.2
rjplumer (1152) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Pleasant light mango aroma. Deep golden body with a mild haze. Started with a finger thick head but fades quickly to a thin covering. Strong mango flavor with a mild bitter bite. Thin bodied and well carbonated feel.

From NOTES. Holy mango infused! Tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer...

[email protected] island brewery. Small head Amber clear. Synthetic mango notes. Very tropical. Dry sweet. Light body. Interesting but not for me.
