Did I mention that I racked onto 2kg of mango in the secondary
Did a week in primary a week in secondary then racked of mango into a 3rd FV for another week to finish off
Could the abv of 7.4 %effect hoppyness?

At what point did you add the dry hops?
I don't think the abv will reduce the hoppyness, I did a 8.2% version and it had loads of hop flavour.
Hard to say what the issue is but I'd love to taste one to see if I have any insight. I'll send you something in return. PM sent.

Cool, I'll be happy to give you an opinion. I'll definitely send you something, it's always worthwhile getting another brewers feedback on your beers.
