Imagine that the German have come up with a high alpha fruity hop! "Could that be right?" we asked ourselves. We were in luck to get 100 kgs. The new wonder hop bears the name Mandarina, and it’s presently not commercially available. And how could we present this hop with all it’s glory? By brewing an IPA of course. Please welcome Mandarina IPA.

Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo 19-01-14. al momento. Color miel anaranjado con espuma blanca muy poco persistente. Aromas afrutados y algo resinos y frescos. Cuerpo ligero, medio fácil de beber. Sabores también dulces y afrutados, naranja amarga pomelo mandarina... junto con algo de resina y lúpulo fresco que deja ligero regusto muy agradable. Paso por boca bastante suave y algo cremoso, a medida que calienta se vuelve un poco mas pastosa.............Bastante buena y para repetir varias veces mas. Muy recomendable.

Great news, the mandarina hop arrival...in this IPA you can find the smooth citric character, not as strong as it occurs with another hop. The beer is medium bodied, refreshing and highly drinkable, better in mouth than in nose. Somehow delicate, it’s a very, very interesting beer located where pale ales turn into IPAs. To repeat.

suurjuust (2854) - ESTONIA - JAN 8, 2014
Hazy orange, medium white head with spotty lacing. Nose is grapefruit, oranges, grass, toasty malt, sweetness. Taste is warm malt with oranges, lemon hints, grapefruity-resiny bitter finish. Bitterness on the mild side, but still very nice. Lingering grapefruit bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

agent_persik (672) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2014
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fruity aroma of caramel, malt and sweet citrus, hint of pine and some floral notes. Taste is similar, mostly sweet with subtle dryness and light to medium hoppy bitterness in finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Enjoyable, but lacks proper IPA bitterness.

Bière orangée assez trouble. Nez fruité d’agrumes. Bonne amertume, bonne carbonation, arômes principalement sur la mandarine (ben oui). Bon, interessant mais pas transcendant.
