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.

Poured into flute a orange amber color with pastime white head and lace. Aroma was malty, breach, with some orange oil. Taste was malts, biscuit with the orange coming in the finish. Not the grapefruit or pine hop bombs being made in the USA, this is very different. Lighter and malty in taste, very drinkable and refreshing. A winner for me.

Looks: a dark cloudy orange, sort of similar to a wheat beer, minimal lacing and head evaporated quickly. Nose: some nice orange notes which dominate, some grass\herbs and typical hoppy IPA fragrances. Taste: the orange is dominant on first taste as is some citrus notes, some sweet caramel malt midpalate, has a hoppy grassy, forest aftertaste. Mild bitterness and carbonation. Good beer. Price Paid: £2.40.

Orange amber-coulered beer with frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, a bit caramel and less hoppy than a normal IPA. Taste is malty and soft herbal hops.

Dégustation offerte par mon beau-frère lors d’un voyage dans le sud texan. Merci beaucoup! Plutôt ambrée, on est vraiment dans les notes d’agrumes au nez, spécialement l’orange. En bouche, l’amertume est assez prononcée apportant avec elle des arômes d’orange et résineuses et on a droit a un tout petit côté malté. Finale bien sèche. Correcte.

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 (15806) - 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 (116) - 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.

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.
