I decided to pair this beer with dinner while at a local beer bar/eatery with my wife and my parents. I was on a bit of an IPA kick at the time (still kind of am honestly) so this one sounded like it would hit the spot.

This beer pours a dull golden hue with low carbonation visible and sports a thin white head that dissipates to a thin lacing quite quickly. The beer is slightly hazy, but this may be chill haze so it is a bit cold. 3.75/5 The aroma is full of hops with a nice intense aroma of grapefruit and citrus peel really coming out. A bit of floral hops comes in as an undertone but there really is a massive amount of citrus here with very little in the way of malt. 4/5 The flavor profile is once again full of citrus with grapefruit and orange & lemon peels both coming through strongly. There is a bit of white bread and light grain that makes its way to the front of the tongue, showcasing the malt, but the focus here is definitely on the hops. Bitterness is moderate and lingers quite a bit after swallowing. There is a decent amount of sweetness but the bitterness really overpowers it. 3.75/5 This is a crisp, medium bodied IPA that is moderately dry with that dryness lingering for quite a while after swallowing. Carbonation is moderate. 4/5 As I expected, this beer hit the spot and got me my hop fix for the day. This beer definitely showcases the hops but it does so without being crazy bitter which is nice. 4/5

Pours a deep gold almost light amber with thick head and thick lacing. Getting lots of hops upfront with some grapefruit notes and mild malt. The taste is on point, full hoppy goodness with a balance of citrus and dryness that blends this beer very well. Getting a dry finish with a medium feel overall. Was very surprised with this one, way more flavor than I expected, would love to try this one from fresh tap, would be wonderful.

-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Bright orange, good clarity with a quick paced, spacious rise of carbonation. The head is frumpy and frothy, dirty-white-beige, with an average rate of retention. Good full band lacing.

S: Aroma of fresh oranges are abundant, along with a nice toasted grain and pine hopping. Some toasted lemon and grapefruit peel of average intentions per style.

T: Dry hop flavor, pine and grapefruit-citrus peel against a dry toasted backing of speciality grains. Good bite of hops, bittering, flower, dry oranges, that lingers quite a bit.

M: Medium body, nice tingle of carbonation, bittering hops parch the tongue.

O: A nicely dry hopped bitter ipa, the aroma could of used some more ummph, but the flavor had plenty of old school dry hopping..

Found this Hop Nosh Tangerine IPA in Total Wines in Charlotte, NC. It should probably be called Total beers with 2500 beers available, though. A sixer of cans was a very reasonable $8.99. Citrusy and grassy notes in the nose and also a hint of sweet malt mix nicely. That continues on the palate of this medium-bodied, clear amber beer from Utah. Grassiness, tangerine, citrus and even a bit of lemon came through for me. Delightfully refreshing to drink, and at 7.3%, it's sessionable, but not boozy. Which, I suppose inches it into the semi-dangerous category. Mind your P's and Q's.

An awesome semi-hazy orange color with a finger of white head. Smells of sweet malts, some citrus, and some hops. Tastes of citrus, hops, bitterness, pine, and malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a delicious and very drinkable IPA.
