look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a pleasing light orange-amber color with 1-2 fingers of a foamy, off-white colored head that settled to just 1-finger, but remained foamy

Aroma: Prominent, but not overpowering tangerine and orange aromas with a whiff of bready malt

Flavor: Again, the tangerine and orange are the stand outs, but with a moderate malt presence to help coalesce the ingredients into a well-balanced, light-bodied ale. A perceptible bitterness it present, but does not truly show itself until about mid-palate and carries through to the semi-dry finish.

Mouth feel: Light-bodied with medium carbonation, crisp

Overall: The way the tangerine/citrus and malt coalesce is quite refreshing and makes for a rather satisfying brew. I’m not sure if it is the citrus zest or the choice of hops that give it such a distinctive tartness. Perhaps a combination of both? Nevertheless, it works for me! I will certainly put this in the summer rotation. Having it offered in cans is an extra benefit too.

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

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.

Appearance: Pours from can a cloudy copper, with fair head of suds and a little lace.

Aroma: Amazing, delicious, and juicy fruit — orange, tangerine…really superb.

Taste: More of the promised delicious and juicy citrus — tangerine of course, as well as pineapple, orange, and mango in there. Plenty of hop bitterness underneath it all, and this is a really top-tier IPA that I plan to pick up again.
