Beer Review - Arcadia Ales Mango Suprise IPA

Arcadia Ales - Mango Suprise IPA

Beer Type: American IPA - 7.00% ABV

Appearance: Classic Arcadia (new) art on the bottle with a tasty looking mango on it. Beer pours a light golden/straw color with a white lacy head.

 Soapy mango chutney? Does not smell like an IPA.

First Drink:
 Initial taste is more like an IPA with hops but it is quickly followed by tropical flavors of mango, pineapple, and citrus.

 Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Good carbonation.

Last Drink:
 More sweet tropical flavors and a very bitter finish.

 I think these tropical flavored beers are the current trend. Kind of like sodas from the late 80's/early 90's. It's okay but gets old.

 Not a bad beer though I am not sure why they spell suprise without the additional "r"

3.5 out of 5. Good for one or two but outlasts its welcome beyond that.
