Very drinkable ale all year round.
I brewed this mini-mash. Came out awesome. ABV is about 5.2%. Will probably brew this again next spring for the summer.
I brewed the Mini Mash version of this and it came out incredible. Like Tim McWha, I also used Mosaic hops ( .5 oz last 5 of boil and 1 oz in dry hopping). On top of that I used 5lbs. of fresh mangos that I added on the 2nd day of fermentation in my primary in a Muslin Hop Bag. 5 days prior to that I cut the mangos into 1 inch slices and froze them then took them out and refroze them for those 5 days to break down the membranes and not have to pasteurize the mangos as they would loose some flavor. I also added the alcohol boost and it came out fantastic for my first IPA. It had great aroma and the taste was awesome. Not too bitter as other IPAs but it was a favorite with everyone that tried it. I am making this again but will add habaneros to it as well to see how that goes and will be doing this all grain. I will post that review in the months to come.
I brewed the LME version and spruced it up by taking the existing recipe and adding Mosaic hops ( .5 oz last 5 of boil and 1 oz in dry hopping) and added the alcohol boost (IMO a good IPA should be mid 6% ABV). IT CAME OUT INCREDIBLE! The flavor is light and citrusy with amazing bitterness (IBU's around 42) and my ABV came out to 6.6%. I feel the aroma department is my only letdown, it has a very mango like aroma no doubt from the Mosaic. The flavor is good n citrusy, like a grapefruit almost but very hoppy and piney too. This is almost my perfect IPA. It blows away everything in my fridge except maybe real Ale 4 squared. DEFINITELY pick this baby up! Mini mash is my next version of this for sure to add more complexity to the body
it's the first time I've tried this beer. Brewed in March, tapped in mid June... this is perfect for a summers afternoon/evening. Light and slightly hoppy, this will be on tap year round at my house!
