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.
Smell: 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.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Good carbonation.
Last Drink: More sweet tropical flavors and a very bitter finish.
Drinkability: 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.
Notes: Not a bad beer though I am not sure why they spell suprise without the additional "r"
Verdict: 3.5 out of 5. Good for one or two but outlasts its welcome beyond that.
