Day 675: Founders Mango Magnifico con Color

Don't mind this photo. It appears that I'm hanging out and drinking in Hell with all the red lighting, but's just a bar with bad lighting in State College (Pennsylvania). 

Here's what the bottle looks like: 
Mango Magnifico - Dark

Founders Mango Magnifico con Color is the Magnificent Mango with Heat. Heat? Yup, heat. It's brewed with mango and habaneros from Michigan. What you can't see from my photo is that it poured a beautiful pale gold color with a barely there white head. The flavor is smooth and sweet--lots of mango deliciousness without being cloying. The habaneros lend a heat that's best described as a slow burn. You don't really notice it at first, but then it starts building and becomes a delicious and fiery yang to the sweet yin of the mango.
