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.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia








Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
