Casa Humilde Mangazo

I know I said that I was going to stop the Hazy IPA’s for a while, but one of my favorite breweries, Casa Humilde released their Mangazo one with Mango so my arm was twisted….

Mangazo is a Hazy IPA with Citra and Amarillo hops with added Mango. This is a 7.5% beer that is another solid effort from Casa Humilde! It looks like an orange juice pouring with a very hazy orange/golden color. The aroma for me is all mango but the taste is excellent. Really nice mango flavor along with the citrus from the Citra and Amarillo hops, there is a nice bitterness to this that I wasn’t expecting in a Hazy IPA. For me, this drinks more like an IPA than a Hazy, which isn’t always a bad thing. Casa Humilde keeps making solid beers and like I mentioned before, they are one of my favorite Chicago breweries. Whatever they release, I’m going to try it!

New episode of the podcast will drop Wednesday with Part 1 of my interview with Lauren from the Beer’d Al Podcast. This was so much fun, we had a great time talking for both of our shows! Part 2 will come out Friday!

To catch up on past episodes, you can always search most podcast directories and you’ll find me!


New Episode Out Wednesday

The 41st episode of Beer In Front will come out Wednesday. This week, instead of talking about an old school classic I’ll be featuring a brewery you’ve heard me mention a lot. Casa Humilde makes some really good beers here in Chicago and I’ll be having La Doble as the Beer In Front.

Everything that I’ve had from Casa Humilde so far I’ve really enjoyed and am looking forward to having La Doble for the first time! La Doble is a Double IPA made with Sabro & Azacca hops. This clocks in at 9.3% ABV and should be another winner from them!
