Tangerine Soul Style IPATangerine Soul Style IPA
Notes: Enjoy a SoCal summer year-round with Tangerine Soul Style IPA. This delectable brew is a one way ticket to taste bud paradise. Relax and take in the brilliant, golden color and fresh aroma of effervescent tangerine. Tangerine zest carries throughout, accented by bright, floral, tropical flavors and a juicy finish. Brewed with American malts and a blend of Citra and Cascade hops, this is a beautiful brew to behold.

poured into: 6 oz wine glass

S: Sienna colored body with an off-white head. It builds, then slowly recedes. Great lacing. Cloudy body that... wait... is that actual tangerine rind? Why yes, it is.

A: A tangerine dream! Sweetness from a clean, simple malt backbone. Tangerine for miles and miles, it's like I was standing in the orchard.

T: As anticipated, plenty of tangerine in the flavor. Very present, but very authentic-tasting. No shortcuts used here! Mid-palate provides a bit of doughy malt, while the finish is a touch tangy and citrusy, though not very bitter. Juicy, like freshly squeezed fruit.

F: Medium-light body, prickly carbonation. A long, juicy finish of, you guessed it... tangerine. Wow.

O: Highly enjoyable fruit-forward American IPA. Excellent flavor and aroma.

S: 4 A: 4.5 T: 4.5 F: 4 O: 4.25

Pairs with: mandarin orange salad, Hawaiian pizza, chicken kabobs, Thai or Indian food

If you want hazy and juicy then this may be the ipa for you. Pours a hazy orange juice looking color that produces decent head. Aromas are in your face citrus. Obviously tangerine and that's about all I get. Taste is all tangerine too. I honestly can't figure out how I feel about this ipa. I really enjoy Soul Style and thought that the addition of tangerine would add something. I wasn't expecting it to be a better beer just different. I think the tangerine Soul Style is just another overly juicy take on a new england ipa. Overall, I like it and will be happy working my way through my sixer but at the same time I want a regular Soul Style instead.

Hazy to cloudy dirty gold color. The head leaves small blankets of lace on the glass.

I definitely get the Tangerine aroma along with some orange rind.

Think of adding a dash of orange bitters to an IPA. Not set but the orange rind smell comes through doubly strong in the taste leaving that as the only lingering flavor in the aftertaste. Fuller bodied but with ample carbonation.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice orangy color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some nice citrus. The taste is hoppy, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.

A: The beer is quite hazy dark yellow in color and has some visible particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of tangerine citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of tangerines along with hints of grapefruit hops and a light amount of hop bitterness, but the citrus itself contributes a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers into the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer is all about tangerines and grapefruit, so if you aren't a big fan of these fruits you might night like the beer. It somewhat tastes like an IPA that was mixed with some tangerine juice.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of the advertised tangerine, lots of hops, and some other light fruits.

T: Tasted of a good amount of tangerine, some lemon, grapefruit, orange peel, a little malt, a lot of hops (more than expected), and a bit of pine. At first, the flavor is a little off-putting because the hops seem a little too aggressive, but it seems to mellow out and the fruit flavors come to the fore. Sweet and tasty.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat bitter finish. Light-bodied.

O: This beer has its flaws, but it kind of grows on you after a while. Generally well done.

Pours a bright orange with a medium thick white foamy head. Mediocre amount of lacing left behind. Bit much on the orange side overall, but I find it lovely overall and fitting for a tangerine beer. Only downside is the head seems a bit lacking, as well as, the lacing. Tangerine comes through the nose in gobs, with citrus, tropical fruits, piney, and dank hops playing softly behind. Tangerine, and citrus dominate the front end of the taste. A little piney bite at the end. Mouth feel is smooth and clean. Good consistency. Overall, really loving this beer. It looks great in my opinion. It also feels and tastes great. Juicy and easy to drink. I'll be back to this one.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

First Green Flash Brew. Part of a pick 6, nothing special. Expecting tangerine citral hops. Look is burnt orange. Minimal head with aggressive poor. Smell is more grassy fresh pond water with lemon scent than anything else. Not a bad pond smell tho oddly enough. Just a bit of tanginess, not bitter for 75 IBUs. Not much lacing, very thin head ring. Feel is a bit hoppier on back end with a piney quality to it. Overall I would expect more tangerine since its part of the name. Citradelic had more than this as I recall but overall this is better.

Good brew pours dark orange with a nice head. Smells like a zesty tropical ipa. Does not quite have the flavor I imagined. Was hoping for more tangerine and citrus BANG. But not too bad nonetheless

this stuff smells like orange. looks like orange juice. and tastes the same. it's very easy to drink butI could prob only drink one just like I only really want one glass of oj in the morning. I like a little more beer in my beer. but overall good for a one time deal.

12 oz. bottle, enjoy by July 08, 2016 printed on the label. A new one to me from Green Flash, acquired a single bottle of this stuff from the local bottle shop. "India Pale Ale with Tangerine".

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Bright juicy hazy golden orange pour, lots of sediment floating in the glass, over a finger of fluffy frothy white head that stays awhile, and leaves good soapy scattered strands of lacing. Appears adequately carbonated. Looks very nice, the unfiltered appearance is very good.

S - Aroma is bursting with big juicy orange citrus / orange peel / white sugar - very prominent and in your face tangerine citrus.

T - Taste follows the nose: the subtle dry bready malts quickly succumb to big juicy tangerine pulp / peel / juice. Big notes of citrus, orange, grapefruit, citrus peel, hop bitterness, lots of bright citrus zest.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, creamy, medium-light bodied & easy drinking stuff. Good piney / resinous hop bitterness.

Overall, a very interesting & delicious IPA from Green Flash; one of the better new beers I've tried from these guys in a while. Recommended.

Green Flash Tangerine Soul Style IPA -----4/5.
