Folding Mountain Brewing Mango Brut IPA American IPA at 7% ABV (C$4.23 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 5-Feb-2019, acquired 22-Feb-2019, reviewed 27-Feb-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of creamy white head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: mango, tropical fruit, pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light funky tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter slightly astringent finish. (4/5)

Big authentic mango flavour here, without the negative bruised fruit or excessive sweetness I often get with mango adjuncts. I think the Brut approach works well with this, serving to reduce the overall sweetness and improve drinkability. Not quite as light and champagne-like as some examples of the style I’ve had, but enjoyable regardless. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
