- Tangerine IPA with tangerine juice added. 16oz. can served in a spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Nectarine orange, good clarity with a vibrant rush of carbonation. Soapy one inch head, decent retention rate leaving soapy splatter marks on the vessel.

S: Freshly sliced tangerine and fresh grapefruit juice are first on the nose. Wet nature with a decent amount of awarness that is more breakfast juice then real hop aromas.

T: Tart flavor, grapefruit juice, sour tangerines peel. Lingering pine and grapefruit hopping with some sweet, sugary malt syrup glimpses.

M: Fizzy light bodied, tart breakfast juice like hold.

O: Honestly don't know how i feel about the addition of the tangerine juice, i know horny goat's M.O. is all about the odd aspect (i.e. brownie stout), but the flavor is more grapefruit breakfast juice, then from traditional hopping. Reminds me of a shandy or radler, that would fair better poolside on a hot summer day when you do not want to be weighed down by a traditional beer. While i consider this another one of their gimmicky beers, this is by far the best i sampled from them and if you treat it like a radler/shandy, then it will serve you well.

This is under rated beer. It can compete with Sculpin Grapefruit. Pleasant smell of tangelin, citrus, orange, along with taste of little bitterness from the hops with mild sweetness of orange and tangerine. Really enjoyable. My rating is usually within the normal range, but not sure why this is under rated here.

I was expecting more flavor of tangerine. Not to hoppy.

A - Amber, nice billowing head when poured; however, doesn't retain for long. Wish it was around longer.

S - Tangerines, citrus hops, sugar, malt, biscuits, allspice.

T - Tangerine juice adds a nice citric sweetness, and with the spice, earth, and citrus flavors of the hops it almost tricks me into thinking it's a maltbomb, in a good way. Well balanced, tasty, enjoyable. However, this beer doesn't scream "IPA". More like tangerine pale ale.

F - Syrupy and rich. Well-carbonated, brings it back to nice drinkability.

O - Enjoyable beer from Horny Goat. Never thought I'd say that. At 6.99 for a 4-pack of pint cans, this is a very affordable fruited hoppy beer, and a decent place to start a beer noob on IPAs.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: A crystal clear light cooper colored body holds up a surprisingly thick cream colored head. Light watery lacing sticks to the glass.

Aroma: Sprucey pine, tangerine, earthy hops.

Taste: A lot of syrupy sweet tangerine to begin, then faint pine and hops.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy.

Overall: It seems like the tangerine is sticky sweet and overpowers the hop element.
