Overall very interesting IIIPA. You can def taste the mangos. Thank you for the trade bonus Bvdubn! Very tasty and worth trading for when fresh!

Tasted from Growler. Poured a murky and muddy golden/orange color with an averaged sized head. Mango, citrus, and tropical fruitiness. Some alcohol in the finish, but it is 11%+. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2013

Appearance: This pours like mango juice, orange and hazy. The head is short but creamy, retention is decent. The head settles into a sparse white coating.
Aroma: The aroma is huge of grapefruit, pineapple, mango and a huge earthy woodsy aroma.
Taste: The flavor is super complex, huge earthy woodsy presence at the start into a sharp aggressive bitterness of grapefruit which is backed by mango and pineapple, with a woodsy finish. The alcohol is minimal, especially for the ABV, but it is present on the finish with a lingering warmth.
Palate: Thick like mango puree with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Pretty good, but I wish the mango were more present and this were a bit sweeter. Very nicely done for the ABV and the IBUs though.
Pours a murky tannish color with a medium white head. Aroma has notes of sweet mango and peach. Flavor definitely has mango with excessive bitternes...slightly boozy...almost earthy/medicinal. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is very bitter and dry...boozy almost medicinal. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle from the brewery thanks to Jeff. Aroma is pineapple, mango, orange and grassy hop. Pours orange and hazy thick like a V8 splash. Nice small but dense head. Taste is very thick with concentrated orange juice, pine resin, grass, and a boozy malt finish. Cool beer but a little more "west coast" than it should have been.

Draft at CAH. Pours thick light to medium brown with no light penetration. nose is mild mango and other tropical fruist. first sip is fruit paste, papayam and under rip mango. finish is mild simcoe hops. DocLock (10975) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Draft at Craft Ale House and rating her after being aliases from Scratch 98. Pours turbid thick grapefruit juicy with minimal ecru head. Nose is a panoply of tropical fruits including kiwi, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine . Tastes tropical fruity, somewhat creamy and lactosy, with big piney hops and the plethora of tropical citrus flavors, all well balanced and complex in the finish with a well hidden alcohol for a beer this big. I think Troeg’s should make this a Christmas exclusive, and call it Don Ho Ho Ho. Either that, or just make it all year and call it Caribbean Concoction.

12oz bottle. Pours a super hazy milky orange juice color with a thin off white head. Huge tropical aroma, lots of mango, papaya, grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus. Taste is thick tropical juice smoothie, full of mango, grapefruit, pineapple, orange juice, resin, and pine. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Boom goes the supper hopped nose with juicy tropical fruits and a bit of a spice not to match in flavor. This is one of boldest IPAs out there. devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2013
