COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Als aller erste Brauerei, weltweit, haben wir die neue deutsche Hopfensorte Mandarina Bavaria zu einem IPA eingebraut. Durch die Verwendung von hellen Malzen und ein wenig Rauchmalz ist der Körper des Mandarina IPAs vollmundig und ergänzt sich hervorragend mit dem mandarinen-zitrus Geschmack. Durch intensives hopfenstopfen, dem sogenannten dry hopping, ist auch in der Nase die Mandarinennote sehr deutlich wahrnehmbar.Der Einsatz von ganzen Hopfenblüten, auch Dolden genannt, gibt diesem IPA seinen ganz besonderen Charakter.

Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden/amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of orange, grass and lime chutney. Flavour of marmalade, lime chutney, herbs and an earthy spice. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Soft fizz. To me this hop sits somewhere in between the fruity, citric American hops and the classic noble hops.

Bottle. Thanks to beerhunter 111 Amber body with white head. Aroma is citrus with caramel malts. Taste is more grapefruit with some caramel malts. Aftertaste is bitter. Nice one.

erickok (4302) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 24, 2015
Amber body, misty. I know the Germans love that they have this new hop, but I am never much convinced. Neither here. Admittedly it’s modern in appeal, but not so fresh and, even more importantly, it’s quite rough in bitterness. Fun drink, nice to analyse, but ultimately a flawed brew. The brewer did cook though and this will be a favourite among many. Perhaps not me. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

zacgillbanks (3190) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
6.1% bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a bitter orange and tropical fruit flavour, malty and burnt toffee notes followed by bitter grapefruit on the finish. Very Good.

0,33 Flasche von bier-deluxe. Goldgelbe Farbe, wenig Schaum, kaum Kohlensäure. Riecht nach Zitrusfrüchten, intensiv nach Mandarine, minimal nach Malz. Schmeckt explosiv nach Zitrus-Mandarine, danach wunderbar hopfig. Im Aftertaste kommt das rauchige, leicht fruchtig

Bozo_skeleton (723) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUL 20, 2015
Blonde paille, carbo moyenne, petit collet persistant. Aromes agrumes et plutot mandarine. Beaucoup de sève en bouche avec toujours ces notes d’agrumes. Belle amertume en finale.

Ordentligt med smak och beska. Orange färg i enlighet med vad namnet antyder. Helt ok faktiskt.

bartholos (98) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Golden-orange colored and hazy with a small frothy head. The mandarina theme is well developed with strong aroma of mandarin and orange and a sweet malty notes. There is some pine there as well. While the combination of orange-citrus and light sweet malts catches the mandarin idea very well in the nose, it is far less noticeable in the flavor. The strong bitter taste hiding the flavor. Therefore there is some unbalance here. The finish is pleasantly strong bitter and leaves a nice medium long after taste which can resemble some of the fruity notes. The body is medium as is the carbonation and get some alcoholic, peppery notes in the end. I somewhat disappointed. The smell is great but the flavor is weak.

Flaska@BA Vasagatan. Citrusig doft. Stram beska i smaken där man kan urskilja en aning citrusfrukter. En tråkig klick smör dyker upp på slutet vilket drar ner helhetsbetyget.

Neorej80 (348) - - JUL 7, 2015
Sweet citrus aroma and some grassy hayey hops. Cloudy orange yellow with a big foamy white /off-white head. Also some yeast floating around. Really full bodied flavours, almost like a double IPA. Sweet citrus, orange uhm... Mandarin peels, a little smokey, but in a sweet way and lots of hay and some hints of honey. Bitter and orangesweet/sticky aftertaste.
