Year of New Beer: Mango Even Keel, Ballast Point Brewing (CA)

Written By: Dion on 03/17/2016

Lives up to its name on the nose as a lively, slightly sweet mango fills the air, backed by a light caramel and grapefruit peel. On the tongue, the mango comes in sweet and almost candied in nature, with hints of orange that oddly make this present sort of like creamsicle. The sweetness fades as a citrus peel bitterness builds, joined by a solid grassy kick. Decent, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
