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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle. Pours very murky orange gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is lots of sweet citrus fruit with a little hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with a lot of citrus fruit and a fairly bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice fruity IPA.

12 oz bottle, with "best by" dating of 08 Jul 16

The pour is clouded tangarine hued lighter amber, moderate off white head, leaves, a fine bubble sheen, thin collar and nice looking low sheeting and all sorts of strands and bit of lacing. Quality looking brew.

Straight up tangarine/orange on the nose. Nice fresh, fruity, soft citric sweet nose.

Nice fruity, citric and peppery IPA....more of the same as on the nose....fresh and tasty...quality brew from GF...drink it fresh and enjoy..

Gold in color with a heavy amount of haziness. There's an inch of off white to light tan head on top. Aroma is of bitter tangerines and citrus. The flavor is of tart and bitter tangerines. The mouth is slightly sticky and moderately carbonated.

12 oz bottle poured into lager glass. Stamped with a tiny BB date of 6/28/16. No sediment left in the bottle after a full pour.

A: hazy orange-copper color with fluffy, bone-colored head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing on the glass

Aroma: Citrus hop and orange juice concentrate with a touch of tangerine peel and pith.

Flavor: very fruity; medium bitterness; hints of orange bread, grapefruit and tangerine peel.

M: light+ body, but not quite watery.

O: I really like citrusy IPAs and tangerines, so it's no surprise I liked this brew. Very easy drinking, especially for an IPA.
