Tangier India Pale AleTangier India Pale Ale
Notes: Where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean is the ancient city of Tangier. This confluence has made Tangier a cultural waypoint for millenia. From Greek heroes to Cold War spies and uprisings, Tangier has inspired thousands of legendary stories. It is written that before his battle with the giant Antaeus, Hercules rested in a nearby cave. But where myths end, our tale begins. Tangier is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with spicy citrus aromas and stone fruit flavors. These flavors, with the addition of lightly roasted malts and brilliant hop bitterness, make Tangier a beverage as refreshing as it is exotic. The approachable 4.6% abv yields more time to enjoy the synergy between the tangerine peel and spicy, citrusy, Azacca hops. Enjoy Tangier in celebration of your epic adventure.

Tangier India Pale Ale | Southern Tier Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with webbed lacing, and a medium gold body.

Smells like a pleasing mix of hops and the added citrus.

I taste a non-bitter blend of the tangerine and hops.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Tangier India Pale Ale | Southern Tier Brewing Company gets an overall 4 out of me.

Southern Tier rarely disappoints and with this tangerine IPA they have produced something quite nice...

Out of the can, it produces a rusty orange colored brew with little foam and no lacing. No big deal as the smell is divine - an almost perfect blend of bitter hop notes, sweet tangerine, and maybe even a slight note of honey added in. The mouthfeel was bold and crisp, without that drying effect I sometimes get with IPAs (a big plus in my book.) The taste of tangerines and its almost perfect blendedness did not quite translate to the taste, but it was still very enjoyable - definitely more IPA than a fruit/veggie brew. Overall, I found this to be another good addition to the ST stable, with it sessionableness being a big plus.

Canned on 7-26-18.

A - Medium gold color, thin lacing, light carbonation.

S - Vinous tangerine and citrus aroma.

T - Tangerine, grapefruit, peppery fruit rind, passion fruit, nice lingering bitter stone fruit with some spicy pepper. At six weeks old, this is still very hop forward.

M - Big medium body and surprising thickness.

O - Nice flavor and thickness for such a low ABV beer.

Appearance: Clean golden amber with a nice foamy white head and lovely lace.

Aroma: Tropical fruit-forward. Very enjoyable.

Taste: Juicy with a touch of bitterness. Tangy and fruity and quite tasty. Wouldn’t turn this one down in the future.

The nose smells like Sunkist, which is a plus in my book. This is a tart, citrus infused IPA with hops up front followed by a broad biscuit note. There is definitely some graininess in the aftertaste. This is okay for a session IPA but nothing special.

Begins more hazy yellow than orange with a very big, bubbly head that settles down with a messy dry lace. Lots of tiny carb bubbles kept the head alive. Didn't have much of a nose. Slight fruit, not even juicy fruit, but the notion of the tangerine peels they brewed this with, there was a faint image. Mouth was good creamy with a slight burn from the hops and a little sour at the end like sucking a tangerine peel. That's where the fun ends I'm afraid. First impression of the taste was an IPA without the things that make IPA. Sure there is bitter but I had to swish long and hard to get just a smattering of fruit loopy sweet. One and done for me or actually three in a sampler pack of cans, this was the third. Over.

A unique taste and feel that doesn’t follow a “typical” IPA. Odd as it may sound, my first impression is more of a flavored seltzer than a beer. Zesty aftertaste. Light feel, not overly hopped. Better suited for a refreshing drink during outdoor activities on a hot summer day. If you’re looking for a “deep” flavorful IPA, this beer may fall short. STBC says this is a session IPA, and indeed its an easy drinking beer. But, even as I finished my last sip, this session ale didn’t quite satisfy the balance of hops and malt that I particularly enjoy.

Pours a slightly hazy medium yellow/gold with moderate head.
Smell is a zesty tangerine and orange.
Taste is citrus and grassy with a hint of tangerine.
A little thin and watery but not too bad.

Barely milky light orange body with medium bubbles rising chaotically, fizzy off-white head. The nose offers authentic fresh tangerine peel, some light bready malt almost like pilsner, and a dash of butter. The flaw is very minor, but then again so is almost all of it-with it was more aromatic. The taste is clean, with bright citrus and spicy hops, a bit of wheat. Solid bitterness. The feel is light and has refreshing carbonation.
This was a pleasant beer. Tasty citrus plus some characterful hops, low ABV and high drinkability. Deeeecent.

Picked-up as a mixed fifteen pack from Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty dollars. Kind of a weird metallic taste. Canned-on date of 2/18. Would not buy again.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. bottled 3/13/17, so over a year old. ouch.

clear golden yellow body, light carbonation, small off white head which still manages to leave good lacing.

aroma is slightly malty and a tad musty.

the tangerine peel used is still very present, giving the beer a dominant bitter taste. the hops have faded of course, leaving a slight sourness. solid malt background. a little tingly around the edge of the tongue.

slightly above medium on the mouth, bitter on the finish.

overall, bitter citrus flavors remain, giving a 13 month old ipa a decent taste
