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.

GenkiGonzo (818) - Kyoto, - JUL 3, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Nice clear gold. Huge orane aroma with some hops. Very fruity flavour, starts sweet but has some hop bitterness after. Sadly not enough hops for what is labelled an IPA. Nice summer beer.

Rune (10000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle at 80 Days Bier Haus in Hull. Remaining off-white head leaving lacing rings down the glass. Cloudy apricot coloured body. Smell of mid-sweet succulent citrus. Fresh fruity taste of oranges and mandarin. Herbal dry ending with a bittersweet touch. Soft in the mouth. Pleasant and refreshing (shared with Finn, 24.11.2015).

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with bright marmalade edges and a one finger off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Good retention taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic streaks of soapy lacing behind. Floral, slightly earthy hop aroma with a strong citrus/tropical fruit presence and pale malt backbone. Some grass, pine needle and subtle resins followed by grapefruit and prominent citrus sweetness. Strong orange peel, curaçao and blood orange character along with some mango and citrus zest. This is countered by a caramel malt backbone with hints of toffee, biscuit and cracker. Strong citrus peel is nice but the earthier hop notes are muted. Fuller end of medium body with soft carbonation and strong earthy bitterness up front that lingers over the prominent citrus fruit sweetness and malt backbone into a slightly dry, boozy finish. Bitterness and earthier hop notes stand out more so than in the aroma with grassy pine needle and dank, resinous oils. This is again countered by prominent citrus sweetness with orange peel, clementine and curaçao zest. Malt backbone is stronger than expected but doesn’t interfere too much with the hop profile with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. Slight boozy heat in the finish but overall the high ABV is well masked making this unique beer easy to drink.

Pours hazy orange with a large foamy head. Aroma is orange soda. Taste is initially like an orange soda, followed by a peppery spiciness. Pleasant.

Bottle 330ml. A dark orange/golden color with small head that dissipated quickly. Nose is oranges, caramel, hoppy. Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Flavor starts with sweet orange and citrus, the hops are present but not overwhelming, somewhere i taste some thea. Aftertaste is light bitter fruity and herbal, a decent ipa with a nice herbal touch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 181015. You can certainly taste the mandarin in this beer and while I am not a great fan of the mandarin it seems to work well in this IPA.
