look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with a white finger width head and fair retention. Leaves a thin layer of microbubbles on the surface,
Smell - Predominant tangerine aroma. Subtle touch of wheat. It's a nice smelling beer, I'll give it that.
Taste - Tangerine up front, tangerine mid-taste, and tangerine in the finish. Touches briefly on wheat. The overwhelming tangerine bittersweetness becomes cloying sip after sip, and then the strong tangerine zest/skin comes through in the finish that truly makes it nigh undrinkable. It's just too damn much tangerine!
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Fair carbonation. Crisp finish.
Overall - While it starts off well enough, the tangerine carries too much into the finish, leaving an overpowering sensation on the palate. A near headache inducing experience after one beer. I once bought a sixer several years ago when it first hit the scene. I couldn't get through two before I gave the rest of the sixer away. I swore I'd never try this beer again, but once I began to review beers I knew I'd have to give it one more round before putting it to rest forever. It's a shame, this could be a great beer if it were toned down and given considerably better balance. As it is, it's awful.
