COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA brewed with Japanese wild breed mandarin "Fukure Mikan". Refreshing flavor of this mandarin complements well with citrusy hop. The perfect balance act of hop bitterness and Umami taste.

0.33 l bottle from a food store in Tokyo. Light amber, cloudy, nice head. Aroma and taste has sour mandarin. There might also hops, but this is quite dry from the mandarin. Not a bad idea to use local fruits.

Pours a very clear orange with an off-white head slightly on the short side. Bad apple special tap! Aroma is like a lager, and very light and slightly sour. Flavor is almost non-existent, with a slight finish of Vicks Vapo-Rub. Reminds me of some Japanese beers like Sapporo.

Oakes (15277) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
Cloudy, amber, a lot of orangey aromas. Has a big orangey taste, light bitterness, bit yeasty. Decent, if you like the orange juice thing.

invinoveritas (110) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Pours amber with a huge frothy head. Inviting grapefruit, hoppy, citrus aroma. Nice floral hoppy taste, refreshing palate and bitter aftertaste.

mzaar (2703) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2016
Flaska @ Restaurang Nami, Varberg. Oklar orange öl med ett givmilt gulvitt skum. Dofter av clementin, örter, karamell och blomster. Samma återkommer i smaken. Försiktig beska, lätt sötma.

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2016
330 ml bottle. BB 2016/10. (Selver) Võru, Estonia. Clear amber color with a small white head. Citrusy hops, fruit tea, dryness, mild bitterness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness and dry maltiness. A bit more freshness would do some magic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

nuplastikk (5698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2016
11.2oz bottle. Unfiltered dulled orange-tan body. Thin, steady, patchy head. Retains its IPA characteristics while building on them with the mandarin, which comes off a lot more natural and pleasant than most of the fruit beers being put out rampantly. Quality brewing, unique, well executed.

LazyPyro (479) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy golden orange colour, some floaties, one finger white head. Hoppy citrus orange aroma. Taste is also quite orangey, citrus hop bitterness, malt notes, sweet fruit, herbs/spices, zesty. Lingering bitterness. Would be great with more hops!

Body is full. Mid sweet. Texture is smooth. The floral orange flavor is good. The hop is not strong.
