A recent addition to Flying Dog's year-round lineup after a successful run in their Brewhouse Rarities series, this innovative IPA features the surprising marriage of mango and habanero with a hop-forward ale. It sounds like it might be a jumble, but the elements work surprisingly well together, leading with bright tropical-fruit tones of mango, melon, pineapple and passion fruit that then yield to the spicy pepper, pine and rich malt flavors on the palate and through the finish. It's a roller coaster of a drinking experience, with sweet highs and spicy lows that ride the medium-bodied mouthfeel through to the slightly bitter finish.
