Slightly hazy orange-gold pour with a small white head. Tangerine comes through in the aroma along with some orange and herbal notes. Taste is fairly bitter with a resiny feel with grapefruit, tangerine, sugar and orange rind flavors. Can also taste a hint of bready malt.

Tangerine coloring, some hop haze, and FLOATIES!!! The tangerine hits the nose first, with some hop notes lingering in the background.

The taste .... is terrifically tangerine, all through the taste, imparting some sweetness at the very end that helps this beer finish very well. Love Avery and love this beer.

6/24/17...poured rusty orange copper, light white foam. Citrus notes, rinds, tangerine/grapefruit hints. Malty smooth, light peppery pine in the back. Toffee backed. Light sweetness balanced out. Super tasty.

From can to pint: hazy golden pour. Low head. Medium-mid-thick body appearance.
Smell is decent apricot, and somewhat sweet malts.
Pretty tasty for what it sets out to be, which is an IPA featuring tangerine peel. The tangerine fruit comes through very well. If you like tangerines dominating your brew, you may love this IPA. I just prefer other citrus flavors such as orange or pineapple, if I were to choose a dominant alternative.
Feels medium smooth, nicely carbonated, almost chewy.
The more I switch to sip from the few ounces I had left in the can, the more I like this little better from the can than from my pint glass.
Decent stuff if you want all apricot in your ipa. It is juicy in that regard.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange color into a pint glass. A hard pour provides a big foamy white head with a lot of carbonation. Retention is good. Lots of spotty patches of light lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste feature tangerine, orange and orange/tangerine zest. The citrus almost overwhelms other flavors in the beer. There are some milder nicely balanced hops and malt to back up the strong citrus aroma and flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp with some late hops bitterness on the tongue. Would make a good session beer if it was a bit less in the .abv department. Still a pretty decent IPA but a bit too much emphasis on the citrus fruit.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright gold with a slight haze, a buttery white head standing 2-3 fingers, good retention that develops into a nice lacing as the beer settles into the glass; a tulip

Aroma: Very citrus/orange forward on the nose, but with a hint of earthy spiciness; white pepper perhaps (?)

Flavor: Bold flavors of tangerine, orange and to a less degree, grapefruit and lemon while the malt stayed in the background in a supporting role, finishing with a fairly long, dry finish

Mouth feel: Medium carbonation with the right body for an enjoyable, summer thirst quencher

Overall: The bright citrus flavors are tamed enough to make this well-balanced, but hop forward IPA quite enjoyable any time of the year. A refreshing and agreeable offering.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 5/23/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear golden/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, honey, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balanced and complexity of citrus/fruity hops, tangerine peel, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops, tangerine peel, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is an excellent fruited IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops, tangerine peel, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Extremely juicy and vibrant on hop/tangerine peel flavors; balanced malts, without being too sweet. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours an effervescent gold with a thumb of ivory colored head. Stellar head retention & lacing

S: Faint breadyness & citrus

T: Follows the nose, grassyness & orange peel up front. Dryness, grapefruitty bitterness mix with slight sweetness. Finishes dry with pomelo & a hint of pear & white grape

MF: Medium body, moderate carbonation & decent balance

This falls flat, but drinks okay
