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.

Copper/sunset coloured beer with a beige head. Medium fruity aroma with some thickness. Very nice and fruity, peachy flavor with earthy elements. Nice round medium strong bitterness. Texture is slightly oily which I like. Overall a very enjoyable IPA indeed. Will taste again if given an opportunity.

Niby IPA, ale jakoś mało w niej IPA. Wygląda ładnie, chociaż piana mogłaby być większa i trwalsza. Pachnie głwnie słodko, ale bardziej owocowo niż słodowo, choć słodowa słodkość też jest. Ponoć piwo warzone z dodatkiem mandarynek i myślę, że od tego ten zapach. Lekkie chmiele cytrusowe też się pojawiają, ale jak na IPE to mało. Piwo z dużym ciałem jak na IPE, ale kończy się stosunkowo wytrawnie. W smaku jako pierwsze znw owoce, ale znw nie od chmielu, dalej słd. Chmielu trochę tutaj brak, podobnie jak goryczki, ktra jest naprawdę niewysoka. Ciekaw jestem ile to ma IBU, że kwalifikują to jako IPE, bo jeśli to ma z 40-50, to jest mistrzowsko ukryte. Niestety rwnie mistrzowsko ukryte są aromaty i smaki chmielowe. Nie powiem, że mi nie smakuje to piwo, bo jest fajne, ale IPĄ to bym tego za nic nie nazwał.

Bottle. Hazy orange golden with a big white head, tons of floating white sediments. Aroma is moderately hoppy, mostly citrus, piney and herbal. Sweetish, light sourness, orange, lemon, tangerine flavors, bitterness is mild. Medium bodied, smooth. Ok.

Bottle. Cloudy orange with white head and lots of hops sediments. The aroma has notes of rotten orange and mandarin with some maltiness. Bitter and sweetish flavor with lots of citrus (somewhat rotten orange, lemon) and orange peels, herbs and some maltiness. Medium-bodied.
