Celebrate baseball and Phillies season with the return of There's No Crying in Baseball, Mango IPA, ABV 6%.
Made by Evil Genius Beer Company, There’s No Crying In Baseball is a Mango IPA named after the Tom Hanks quote from the movie A League of Their Own. Brewed with a delicate balance of malted barley and wheat, hopped with three of the juiciest hops we can find, then infused with all-natural mango. The wheat provides a balanced, smooth mouthfeel, while the exotic North American & Australian hops add a distinct, unmistakable fruity darkness. Finally, we top it all off with all-natural mango, resulting in a fruit IPA that is endlessly drinkable.
