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.

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