Taste: refreshingly crisp, dry hopped, tangerine, citrus tangy, clean finish. Big orange citrus nose. Golden/amber hue, slightly hazy, white head with some lace. Medium body. I could drink more than one. 35 IBUs

Pours an almost clear dark amber, coppery coloration with a small, fizzy head. Smell is pure, tangy and slightly fizzy tangerine, smells almost more like lemonade than a beer. Taste follows the nose, with a strong, tangy, slightly zesty tangerine flavor backed up by slighty sweet, biscuity and caramel malt. Finishes with a light bitterness and tangy tangerine notes lingering in the aftertaste. Light body with medium carbonation. Well, this is a one-trick pony, being quite one-dimensional with the focus almost entirely on the tangerine. Luckily it has that certain tang and zest to it, meaning that it doesn't become quite too sweet, but is still kinda lemonadey.

12oz can (Date stamp: 07/09/18 180265 1213) served in a nonic glass.

Appearance: Clear dark gold to amber color with just a bare hint of chill haze. Thin white head with some small islands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Fresh cut tangerines - and nothing else.

Taste: Tangerines, orange, cracker-like malt (not a lot of flavor), and a light bitter finish that had citrus and tropical fruit flavors.

Mouthfeel: A little thin, but good carbonation. A bit sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Easily drinkable with a very good aroma but the tangerines dominate heavily in this beer - almost approaching alcoholic juice cocktail, but without the juice-like thickness. Went well with chicken and cheese adobo enchiladas, but I think this would pair better with something that the tangerine could contrast more with.

I tried this at Brew Dog in Canal Winchester, OH. It poured a slightly hazy orangish with thin white head that did not leave any lace. The scent was tangerine straight up. The taste was tangerine leaning. The mouthfeel was lighter body with smooth carbonation. Overall it was an good beer.

The lightly hazed yellow-orange colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/2” ivory head that slowly recedes to a ring around the glass and an irregular thin island on the surface of the liquid while leaving legs and circles of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates scattered patches and legs of lacing. By midway through the beer most of the foam has disappeared k3.5

The aromas highlight the Tangerine and it’s zest along with some light caramel from the malt. 3.5

As expected from the nose the flavors are mostly about the Tangerine and it’s zest. The caramel malt is in the background and balances the citric bitterness quite nicely

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and lightly prickly with the small bubbled active carbonation. The finish begins as the sweetness and Tangerine flavors begin to fade slowly, allowing the dry, crisp bitterness to end the show.

Overall this is a simple good workman like beer that serves it’s purpose. It’s easy to drink, filled with refreshing citric flavors, reasonably enjoyable and something I’d be willing to have again on a hot day if offered. Along with the low ABV the flavor profile would make it easy to have another, so it seems suitable for summer drinking. That said I’ll not be seeking this one out in the future. It was interesting to try but not interesting or complex enough to look for again.

Despite appearing heavily carbonated, this beer comes off as flat and dry. Notes of tangerine, but the most prominent note is of lemon. Very short, curt finish. I have been digging many of these session, low ABV ‘Dad Beers’ ...but this one misses the mark.

12oz can, date stamped 07/09/18. Copper colored ale with a foamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to nothing. Big tangerine aroma with citrus and tropical fruit; caramel and honey sweetness. Refreshing and complex notes of nutty grain, sweet caramel, fruity tangerine, mango, honey, and zesty orange & grapefruit. Medium body, smooth, lower carbonation, zesty and piney finish with plenty of residual sweetness countering the bitterness. I am usually not big on fruited beers, but this was pretty enjoyable.

Slightly hazy orange color with beige head. Aroma has soft tangerine notes and some sweet toasted malt. Taste is also soft and citrusy with light bitterness on the finish. Light to medium body, well carbonated. Decent session IPA.

330 ml can, from Bunnpris Sauda. ABV is 4.5%. Orange colour, moderate white head. Intense aroma of tangerine and citrus candy. Light bodied. Flavour of tangerine and citrus peel, not very sweet, with some bittering hops in the finish. One-dimensional.
