Golden straw color, lots of sediment when poured, nice citrus smell, much more bitter than juicy taste

12 ounce can poured into a tulip glass.

L---Slightly hazy orange/gold color. Nice white head with good retention and very good lacing. Lots of floating chunks of sediment that eventually settled to the bottom .

S---Smells maltier than hoppier. Some tangerine/orange is apparent.

T---Tangerine/orange comes through as normal citrus found in IPAs, not as the major ingredient in the beer. Citrus is the dominant flavor, there's some grapefruit, too.

F---Juicy and a bit tart. Has the ability to be pounded. I could definitely see more than one or two going down on a hot day.

O---I was expecting more from Avery. It's pretty run of the mill and doesn't stand out for having a tangerine presence.

An old specimen, so this isn't representative of the beer at its freshest. Big 'ol craggy head that quickly dissipates into your thin, off-white standard head. Light orange, slightly hazy with bits of yeast or whatever suspended throughout. I get the tangerines on the nose but no real hops. There's a sweet maltiness there too. Taste is less sweet, more bitter; tangerines come through on the back end. Medium-bodied. Not a bad beer at all, but I'll have to seek out a fresher offering before passing final judgement.

I was disappointed with this beer. Hoping for a nice shiny juicy IPA but all I got was malt and bitterness. It was missing the citrus smell and taste was not what I expected. Maybe I got a bad can. Looking at the bottom says canned on 01/05/2018 and I am drinking it at the end of July. That’s unfortunate. I won’t be going back for more

Hazy gold, lasting head. Medium body. Crisp, very bitter, & dry. Complex flavors, citrusy, and a good malt backbone. The tangerine is very well executed. I just think overall it's a poor IPA.

Mostly clear, light amber color. Thin head with streak lacing. Aroma is citrus zest and butterscotch, with hints of floral and fruit. Flavor is very resinous and hops forward. Lots of bite from the tangerine peel up front, with a light floral essence in the aftertaste. Balanced with some caramel malt. A bit thick in the mouthfeel, and a slightly watery finish. Definitely a flavorful beer though & worth checking out.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a big, rocky, two finger white head. Looks interesting after a few minutes with a complex surface that looks like a boulder field. Aroma of pale malt and orange with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor is lightly bready malt, orange and tangerine with orange family fruit zest, citrus hops, developing an odd orangey and umami flavor in the middle before bright tangerine zest reasserts itself into a lightly resinous citrus hops finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Although this delivers on its name, the flavor that develops in the middle is a bit odd. It's like drinking a beer, taking a bite of food and biting into orange rind at the same time. There is real appeal to the genuine tasting orange and tangerine zest flavors, but it is kind of all over the place. Hops are bittering with little herbal character. I liked this, but don't think it will become a favorite.

Not sure what’s up with this IPA. Looks good, but smells like someone ate an orange and then burped in my face. Really weird and vegetal. Taste is pretty much just orange extract and grassy hops, with a lightly sweet malt backbone.
