COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

IPAgutten79 (603) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2014
Gylden/oransje med medium høyde på skummet. Tiltalende aroma av mild furu, noe appelsin og sitrus. Smaken består av sitrus, malt og humle. Antydninger til appelsin samt furu. God i munnen, fruktig med sødme fra malten og noe bitter. Bitterheten fra humla presenterer seg selv best i ettersmaken syns jeg. Godt balansert, medium konsistens.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle at the courtesy of Rune. Low fluffy off-white quickly disappearing head. Hazy peach coloured body. Dry dusty fruit malt aroma. Dusty mild light spicy fruit flavor. Low carbonation. Short finish. A bit disappointing and watery in spite of the high alcohol contents.

Idiosynkrasie (4097) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Dubious, inexplicably fusty aroma, sulphuric, hints of egg, flatulence. Taste is bitter hoppy, hints of spelt, husk. Total disappointment.

dEnk (4035) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle @ De molen. Very fruity orange/ mandarin aroma, some grassy/floral notes as well. Flavour is a nice biscuit malt base covered in medium bitter fruity hop notes. Great, but somewhat thin in body for the abv.

Unclear, orange to brown. Not a very pretty beer. Lots of white head. Medium body and slightly below medium carbonation. Citrus, grapefruit, some lemon, some malt, hop, some alcohol flavour. A bit warming alcohol. Good IPA.

Mandarina IPA on samea ja oranssinen olut valkoisella vaahdolla. Sen tuoksu on havuinen ja hedelmäinen. Maku on katkera ja havuinen. Tukevaa tavaraa.
