Mango IPA. How very Florida.

Every week, we take a look at a craft beer brewed in Florida.

This week we're taking a look over to the beach side in Hollywood, where a brewery is pumping out beers right on the waterfront, the Hollywood Brewing Company. 



Earlier this year, the brewery dropped the 'Organic' part of its previous name and decided to open up a full-scale production brewery near Sheridan Street, getting a new starfish inspired logo in the process.

They are still a European-centered brew house, with the pilsners and lagers reigning supreme at the beach-side brewpub on the boardwalk, but are beginning to delve into some more seasonal and experimental brews. 


Here, we're going to be taking a look at one of the more interesting varieties available on the menu, the Mango IPA.

The beer pours a brilliant clear dark orange with a voluminous and frothy head. Aromas of citrus abound with a slight hint of mango goodness that sneak in under the radar. The taste is quite sweet and malty, with a little bitterness at the beginning. 





The mango aspect is there but not overpowering; it holds as a distinct undercurrent to everything else that's going on. It moves towards a more pine-focused finish that holds on to the sweetness as it goes.









It's an IPA that's not going to be an impressive treat for hop heads, but will instead offer interest for those looking for tropical fruit flavors without mouth-coating syrupy sweetness. 




Mango IPA can be currently found on tap at the Hollywood Brewing Company brewpub at 290 N. Broadwalk in Hollywood. It still has a charming European village mural across the western wall, and boasts some of the best views of any brewery in South Florida: straight out onto the Atlantic Ocean.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
