16 oz. Can
Canned On: 09/20/2018

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice hazy dark golden orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mandarin), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mandarin), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed orange-amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a light level of retention, fading moderately quickly to leave a tiny bit of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strong of orange juice mixed with the aroma of orange rind. Along with these smells comes some lighter smells of hay and yeast.
Taste – The taste begins with a moderately strong showing of sweeter orange citrus hop supported by a lighter bready taste. As the taste advances the sweeter citrus dries out a little bit as some tastes of orange rind come to the tongue. With a surge of orange citrus hop at the end, one is left with a rather orange juicey, moderately hoppy taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is slightly thinner for a 6.5% abv IPA with a carbonation level that is average. For the citrus hop and OJ taste the slightly thinner body was rather nice and made with a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A rather tasty orange citrus IPA with a good easy drinking feel. Nothing super outstanding, but a good one to try and go to from time to time.

Not much citrus for a can with a picture of an orange on it. A fine ipa but nothing super notable.

A thanks to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, light malts. Taste is of orange peels, little else, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall ain't bad, but this brewer makes much better IPA's.

While I enjoy the beer from Knee Deep, the only reason I bought this IPA was for my, just so I could tell him, "dude you are drinking my man juice!" Childish, hell yeah. But good fun. As for the beer, it pours a crisp, clean amber with a 1-finger head that holds form and with very little lacing retention. The smell is dominated by ripe orange rind and other citrus fruits. Some minimal bitterness sneaks in, as the citrus fades. Taste is full on citrus up front, as the juice subsides, the hops quickly jump in for a moment of bitterness. Still a fine drinking, every day beer. Cheers!

Can to goblet.

Look: straw yellow color, clear, above average white head which fades to a thin film. Decent retention.
Aroma: orange jumps out at you upon pouring. Also some grass or hay floating around.
Taste: metallic and citrus hoppyness. Tart orange late.
Feel: light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Touch of creamyness. Slight pasty feel in finish.


Not anywhere near my favorite citrusy ale, but for the money this was amazing. 4pack for $2.70. Couldn't pass that up as a nice summer option. Probably discounted b/c of the name which is a little creepy; I do get the Mandarin orange reference, but I couldn't help think of the intended scandalous connotation.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of orange citrus and orange zest are present in the nose. As the beer warms up, the smell becomes more semblance of an orange creamsicle.
T: The taste follows the smell and mostly has orange creamsicle flavors.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting beer that starts out smelling like a traditional IPA but then transitions over to something closer to an orange creamsicle.

While this beer is exactly as advertised, it strays just a bit too far into the fruit for me to love it. Flavor is great, would just prefer a bit for of an IPA

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned March 21st 2018.

Exceptional clarity. Beaming and super clear looking body color, of a bronze gold that shimmes. Lots of nice rising pin head carbonation, meating to a frothy fistfull off white head. Soapy lacing, and island creamy top, gorgegous looking beer.

Real nice aroma. Fruited juicy and zesty Christmas orange mixing with touches of almost creamsicle sweetness. Hints with a wondeful herbal component somewhere between mint and black tea. Large amounts of herbs and flirts with dank but more sweet perfume like aromas.

Palate goes relatively straight forward. Less creamy sensing and a bit of toasty malt flavors, mixing with more hop astringency. Touches large herbal mint and sharp orange qualities. Has a bit of white flour and toast finish, mixing with large amounts of green mint and almost lime like herbal qualities. Very clean, but with larger fruity tones and not so much juice.

Pretty good solid fruited IPA.
