Notes: More summery than a block party, this hazy IPA gets an added bounce of brightness from tangerines. It's citrusy and definitely sunny! Hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, Citra, and Mosaic hops, this is a great one for those who like their juice but want their beer too.

Wonderful predominately orange citrus aroma, one of the best smelling beers I've had. Initial taste (first few swallows) has a non-hop bitterness I assume from the tangerine rind. Wonderful balance of tangerine, hops, and malt give this a great mouth feel for a 7% ABV Beer. Wonderfully done.

Can from Canton St June 2020

This tastes like Velocity Of Light with a ton of tangerine zest added. Tons of lingering bitterness from the rind sits on the pallet which might be off putting to some-however the core beer is so well made, it’s worth it

From a tall aluminum can, this brew is extremely hazy...cloudy...it looks like a milky white ale. Slim white head. The aroma is full-on hops. Lots of fruit and pine and resin and sharpness. The flavor is appropriately bitter. There is a soft, semi-sweet taste in the mid-tongue, although the bitterness overshadows it. Juicy and engaging. I liked this one.

16oz can served in a pint glass. Dated 8/01/2019. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours a super hazy yellow-orange with a fairly large head and lots of fine carbonation. Smell is more piney and resinous than tropical.

Taste tangerine juice and pine.

Mouthfeel is light, but super resinous. Overall, it's a good beer.

16oz can, date stamped 08/01/2019. Hazy tangerine colored ale with a tall & foamy off-white head. Juicy & zesty citric tangerine aroma with tropical fruit in the background. Zesty flavors of tangerine, orange juice, and grapefruit; background notes of passion fruit, mango, peach, and green hops in the mix as well. Medium body, tangy and prickly on the tongue, green hops burn the throat a bit on the moderate bitter finish. Overall, good flavors and good utilization of the tangerines.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on August 16, 2019. Brewed with Mandarina Bavaria, Citra and Mosaic hops. Hazy with nice tangerine notes.
