Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Ogden River Brewing (Ogden, Utah)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Mango With The Flow Sour IPA
  • Style: Milkshake India Pale Ale (IPA) / Sour Ale
  • Serving: 32 ounce crowler can
  • ABV: 5.0%
  • Ingredients: Cashmere hops, mango puree, vanilla beans, and lactose
  • Pour: The Mango With The Flow pours a hazy, bright yellow hue with a thin, bright-white, frothy head that dissipates quickly.
  • Nose: The nose is tropical, citrusy, floral, and sweet.  There are aromas of mango, passionfruit, lemon zest, vanilla, fresh cream, pale malts, wild flowers, and a hint of clover honey.
  • Taste: The taste of the Mango With The Flow follows the nose and is characterized by citrusy, fruity, and floral hops along with light, pale malts.  There are notes of mango, passionfruit, guava, lemon, vanilla, cream, soft caramel, and crackery biscuit.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium in body and well-carbonated, the mouthfeel is very crisp and juicy, slightly tart, yet very smooth and creamy with a dry, clean finish.

Overall pairing: The crisp, tart, fruity, juicy, and delicious flavors and aromas of the Mango With The Flow Sour IPA from Ogden River Brewing is a great foil to the complexity and darker tones of Pearl Jam's classic "Ten"!  Those fruity and tart notes go great with the harmonies and melodies!  'Nuff said!!
