On tap at Old Fashion, Madison.
Served in a standard pint glass. Virtually no head and what is there dissipates to nothingness fairly quickly. No lacing. Aroma is... Tangerine. But it's a fermented tangerine, not the fresh juicy tangerine. And orange zest. First taste is brutal. Pure tangerine zest and citrus oils. Brutally pungent with intense citrus oils. But the pungent astringency wears on the taste buds and eventually you're able to pick up more than just orange zest. Tart, slightly acidic, orange, some mild pale malts. Bile. Lighter bodied, tart, moderately bitter, but its more of an astringency than a bitterness.
In the end this tastes like a blend of beer and orange juice. Not for me.

Growler brought from the brewery - thanks to my sister

A - pours a clear orange-copper, little bit of white head

S - tangerine comes through, not too strong, with citrus and malt subtly following

T - tangerine present here too, fairly sweet, complemented by bitter, piny hops

M - fairly thin, well-carbonated

O - good take on a fruit IPA - similar to Scurvy from Tyranena but a bit sweeter with the tangerine

On-tap at Three Cellars in Franklin, WI:

Pours orange-amber with a thin, lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of tangerine and a general citrus aroma. The aroma is robust, fruity and pleasant!

The taste is of tangerine - in a very real way. It has a touch of sweet pine to keep it from being too one-dimensional, but the tangerine stays in the front in a genuine way. There is a bitter touch to keep it an "IPA" in the finish.

It has a reasonably creamy body, though there is a bit of a sharpness to it.

The tangerine gets stronger as it progresses. There is a bitterness that balances it. It's an interesting fruit IPA!
