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.

Pretty tasty stuff and an interesting approach. Served at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, thick, cream colored head that slowly settles down and lots of lace. Color is a clear, orange amber with some varying sized bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, fruit, Flavor is like nose - tangerine comes thru along with citrus, resin hop flavor and some carbonic tang. Body is good and ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, longish and good for at least one more draught.

I loved this beer and if they don't bring it back soon, they're crazy. The greatest thing is that it introduces people like me to a brew that would be "unpalatable," to one that just allows one to slowly get accustomed to the IPA standards. We went there for Valentine's Day. I was so disappointed that I couldn't have my husband try the Tangerine IPA. He doesn't like IPAs as a rule. Food was great and beers they served were great!
