Tangerine, Juicy, Bitter, Balanced

Hop Nosh IPA brewed with tangerines pours golden with orange hues and a solid head and lace. The wonderful aroma is floral and—you guessed it—very suggestive of tangerine. Unita’s fruity twist on a flagship is bursting with citrus and juicy tangerine depth from zest to flesh. Flavor-wise it’s tart with a well-rounded bitterness that's grassy, leafy and piney with a slight oiliness. The sweetness is low and the malt character is soft and bready. Overall, the beer is dry with a lingering pithiness and well-hidden alcohol. A deliciously balanced IPA, which allows the tangerine to shine.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #114 (July 2016).

Poured from 12-oz can into tumbler. Clear dark amber color with long-lasting white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. A little fruit on the nose along with the typical IPA aromas. Tangerine flavor is subdued, but begins to assert itself as the beer warms. Nice resiny finish, very well balanced.

Coming from the normal Hop Nosh makers, I got to say that this version is a little more heavy feeling, with less adaptability or spontaneity and more predictability on a recipe that already had it going good without it. Kind of reminds me of what Modus Hoperandi and multiple other brews have went for but not quite as successfully.

Golden amber, semi transparent beer. Soapy head.. Lighter lacing on the glass then others I've had today, heavier feeling though. Slightly artificial in tone and kind of unnecessarily bitter, throwing me off of my ball game when it comes to my drinking reviews. Maybe it's just me but I would've preferred another beer, Uinta. This is a really burpy, filling beer.

There is that little bit of tangerine but also a lot of darker sour, more intense peel of the fruit minus the tartness, the bitter rind, and more sticky carbonation then a normal Hop Nosh. Smell is okay.

Didn't know what to expect but I thought this would be one of the better beers in my mix a six. It's alright though.
:p

Clear light gold color with white cap.

Aroma of piney, citrusy hops with a definite lean toward citrus.

Taste on entry is hop forward (natch, it's 84 IBU) , piney hops with a fairly strong addition of tangerine. I can't tell how much of the flavor is due to fruit or hops but tangerine it is. A rather full on tangerine, more like essential oil than zest or juice. The brewer says this is a take on their traditional IPA but I find the malt presence much diminished, almost lacking else I would've scored it higher. Clean finsh with an almost surging hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Unapologetically hop bitter and fruit dominant, I don't see exactly where this one fits in. Too bitter for food, too lacking in taste other than hop bitter fruit, and not exciting enough to set a few aside for guests. Guess I'll just have to finish the six pack.

12 oz can.
Poured with a light copper colored body that has excellent clarity and is topped by a tall, frothy off-white head.
Aroma: dank, grassy and herbal; certainly not as fruity as expected but with a clear suggestion of citrus rind.
Flavor: More fruity and less grassy and dank than the aroma.
Medium body and carbonation.

A prior reviewer said it well: Sip it or otherwise it will just be a bitter bomb. There is some nuance here but the orange/peel taste can overwhelm things a bit. I didn't love the look: head went to zero real fast, and it almost looked flat. Very dank smelling with some citrus. Catch some sweet malt and citrus taste-wise. This beer really coated the mouth and I could still taste it a minute or so later.

A pretty decent tangerine infused IPA--not saying a ton, but it's not a bad beer. Not better than Enjoy by Tangerine. Not even close. Maybe not as good as Tangier. Middle of the pack I guess.
