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

Pours a golden color with a nice two finger off white head from an aggressive pour. Leaves some nice sheet lace down my glass.

Aroma is is nice hops floral and fruity with tangerine definitely dominating.

Taste is kind of like the nose good hop notes but not as floral and sweet tangerine, more grassy bitterness with citrus rind bitterness mixed with just hints of the sweet tangerine that was in the nose. Flavor is good a descent IPA to be sure just think it would be little better then good in the taste more matched the nose.

Mouthfeel lighter side of medium carbonation is a little peppy also maybe making it feel lighter then I would of guessed at 7.3%

Overall a good IPA think it would be better then good if the flavors matched the nose more.

I picked up a bottle of Uinta's Hop Nosh Tangerine IPA for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. I've been wanting to try this beer for awhile and now that it's available in Michigan I need to give it a try, so lets see how it goes. 2017 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an IPA glass.

A- The label looks good, it goes well with the name and it's a little eye catching. It poured a darker orange color which took on more a brighter orange color when held to the light and two fingers worth of slightly creamy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice rights of patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking IPA, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with a hoppy orange and tangerine aroma being the first to show up with some orange rind aromas also showing up along with floral, light herbal and light green hop aromas coming through in the background with a little more fruity hops. Up next comes some doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart more of a bready and toasted malt and caramel malt like aromas with a little more sweetness. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, but I wish the the hops showed up just a little more.

T= The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and it imparts all the hoppy aspects that it did in the aroma with the orange and tangerine aspects still sticking out the most. Up next comes the doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma and this time they show up a little more. On the finish there's a lower amount of medium bitterness with some malty flavors showing up towards the end, this is a nice tasting beer, but I wish it was a little a little less malty.

M- Fairly smooth, a little on the sweet side, not too crisp, slightly sticky, on the thicker side of being medium bodied with a lower amount of medium of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and I thought it was a pretty solid example of the style, it had enough tangerine flavors to live up to it's name, but I wish the DIPA base was a little more balanced and cleaner. This beer had ok drinkability, one is good enough for me, anymore than that it might start to wear one me. What i like the most about about this beer is the appearance, it's a good looking beer. What I like the least about this beer is the taste, I just wish it was a little more balanced. I might buy this beer again and I think it's worth a try if your want a more fruity IPA. All in all I liked this beer but I didn't love it and I think with a little more on the taste and it could be a pretty good beer. It's not my favorite beer from this brewery and it's a pretty solid example of the style. Nice job guys, but a little more work could take this one to the next level.

Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a medium amber body with some lacing. Nose of tangerine perfume. Taste of tropical fruit, dank pine, and other citrus. Good feel and overall, the nose is a bit weird and I lowered the numbers from the numbers of the first half of the glass.

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.

Amber orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Delicious tropical and citrusy aroma with notes of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, tangerines and some caramel and toasted malts.
Flavor with notes of resin, grapefruit, tangerines, a good deal of mango, toasted malts, lots of pine and spices. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Its 82 IBUs do not feel aggressive at all.
Medium towards full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.3% is completely absent.
Tropical American IPA that proved to be quite well balanced, especially considering it has 82 IBUs. Tangerine was not overdone at all. It filled the blanks within its myriad of flavors. I recommend if you are into tropical and bold IPAs.

This IPA pours a crystal clear dark orange color with a big foamy off white head. The smell is all bold citrus with orange, tangerine, and floral notes drowning out any potential competition. It’s a very fresh, summery scent. The taste also has bold orange, tangerine, and floral notes, but grapefruit, and a mild toasted grain flavor come to join the party. The body is medium, but probably a bit on the lighter end of the spectrum for an IPA despite being a fairly robust 7.2% alcohol. The finish is mildly bitter and also a little bit tart, which is kind of odd in an IPA. The flavors were good overall, but they somehow seemed slightly washed out to me compared to that big, delicious scent. On a hot summer day though, this is the kind of IPA that I would look for.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a burnt orange color with a thin finger-ed white foamy head. Mild stuck / spider web lace. The smell started off with some bitter tangerine rind and then sweetened slightly by the pulp. Shows a nice little snappy/"refreshing" quality. The taste combined the bitterness and the sweetness together nicely with a quick aftertaste and a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light. Nice appropriate harshness is in the IBU level for an AIPA. Overall, for an AIPA with some brewer’s creativity, I’d say this was pretty good. I’d have again and am glad it’s in cans as it would be one I’d be taking fishing.

Can with a BB date of October so this is pretty fresh. Pours a deep gold and smell is tangerines, hops, pine, caramel malts. Taste is very similar to the smell. Not too bitter, goes down pretty easy. Oily mouthfeel. Overall it's not too bad as far as these fruit forward IPA's go, but I've had their regular IPA and I liked it more.

A dark orange in appearance I poured this at approximately 38 degrees into a curved pint glass and it had a persistent one finger head. the smell is utterly perfect, walking the exact line between the smell of hops, "citrus" hops, and citrus; the taste is also this way, blurring the line between what's fruity and what will put hair on your chest. Bitter yet citrusy with mild hops this is one of my favorite beers to date, I have to try it next to my previous favorite to decide which one is better.
