Orange /golden colour with a lasting white head. Smells of corn, stale malt, spicy hops and hint of mint. Tastes of sweet corn and stale malts, some grassy hop, medium hop bitterness. Palate is fairly sweet, with moderate carbonation. Lingering spice.

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.

14oz draught pint at Draft & Craft, Singapore on 07/08/2015. Dark orange amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet herbal flavour, with tea, mandarins and malt. Slightly spicy, lightly hopped. Not bad but not so easy to drink.

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 29, 2015
Nice fruity aroma. Beautifully fruity and citrus, like it had been made with NZ or US hops. Sits orange in the glass. Super sweetness from the malt. Not extravagant or pushy, but this could easily be your summer fridge staple

obguthr (5832) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Tea, feet, raisin, and prune nose. The latter was hard to identify as it wasnt something I expected to find in an IPA, but it definitely smells of raisins and prunes. Clear amber with white chunks, thick head with very little retention. Distinct tea flavor, ringed with much more subtle prune notes. Light and fizzy, somewhat dry. Very little hop presence for an IPA.
