Scottish Craft Brewer Innis & Gunn has released a refreshing limited-edition beer, a Mango IPA designed to offer a 'fruity punch' for the summer.

Dubbed Mangoes on the Run, the IPA is loaded with Hercules, Citra and Simcoe hops and a load of mangoes.

Described as having notes of citrus fruits and sweet mango on the nose, with a “light and fresh flavour”, Mangoes on the Run has an abv of 5.6%.

This latest addition to Innis & Gunn’s growing portfolio of IPAs follows the  launches of the Session IPA and Gunnpowder IPA, which was released in a 330ml can format earlier this year.

Dougal Gunn Sharp, founder and master brewer at Innis & Gunn said: “We wanted to create the perfect beer for summer, and our new Mangoes on the Run IPA is the fruitiest number we’ve ever brewed – packed with tropical flavours and fruity hops for a mightily refreshing beer.“

Innis & Gunn’s Beer Kitchen bars in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee will be pushing Mangoes on the Run throughout June with the Innis & Gunn team confirming that every Saturday will be a ‘tropical party night’, which will include a £50 bar tab for the worst Hawaiian shirt.

There will also be midweek ‘Mango Massaoke’ nights, with live bands playing classic hits with lyrics on the big screen for the crowd to sing along to.

The 330ml can is currently available in Sainsbury’s and Morrisons stores nationwide, and will be listed at all 900+ JD Wethersoon pubs from September.
