Beer Review: Meridian IPA (infused with Mangoes and Chiles)

Reviewing the Meridian IPA (infused with Mangoes and Chiles) from the Goose Island Beer Company out of Chicago, Illinois.

Score: 92

Tap pour served in a mini nonic pint glass and enjoyed on 05/13/14.

Appearance: Pours a clean golden amber color with three fingers of white head that settle to a thick layer. Really good lacing, but below average retention. 4.25/5

Smell: Huge mango forward tropical fruit with a kiss of grassy hops. Simple, but effective IPA. No chili peppers. 4.25/5

Taste: Tastes just like the nose. Mango-forward tropical fruit hoppiness with a slight herbaceous/floral character. No pepper flavor or spiciness. Tasty and juicy, quite refreshing. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Thin bodied, good carbonation. Super juicy mouthfeel with a nice fruity sweetness and light hop bite. 4.25/5

Overall: A really nice IPA from Goose Island. Tastes a lot like the regular Meridian, but more Mango-forward. No chili, though.

Cost: Unknown (pour included in ticket price).
