Bottle. Clear amber color with eggshell head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, piney, old hops. Taste is caramel, toffee, piney, earthy, bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel. Okay, not so much Mandarina noticeable for me.

On tap @ CBF Düsseldorf. Smooth mild beginning. Sweetish, round and refreshing with a sticky malty aftertaste. Nice with fresh fruity floral parts, the hops are a bit in the back.

Wordt hier niet buitengewoon enthousiast van. Beperkt aroma, vlakke smaak en ondanks het hoge ABV weinig aftertaste.

12floz bottle, BOD: 05.26.2017, $1.50 unit price, tulip glass. Lets start with scent: sweet, caramel, drizzled baked goods with an essence of orange zest. Second looks: amber with clarity and a small clingy head. Third flavors: tree bark, resin, and darken toast. Fourth the feel: full-bodied, fair carbonation, and a moderate bitterness that lingers. Finally overall: decent, not great, not bad either.

shigadeyo (3759) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2017
7/07/2017 (12 fl oz bottle) Malt, brown sugar and caramel, and alcohol-soaked fruits; bronze-orange color, hazy; minimal off-white crown; orange candy, caramelized fleshy fruit, alcohol venting through the nose and perceived in the flavor, more sweet maltiness and sugars rather than hops as the bitterness is fairly moderate to low, harsh chemical finish; medium to medium-full body, smooth and slick texture; I have a soft spot in my heart since I have been to visit them in there old location as well as their new one, but this beer was a huge let down considering the "ale brewed with fresh mango, orange, lemon and lime" description on the label and none of that is really present in the aroma or flavor! Very disappointing and a waste of money considering my homebrew citrus IPAs taste way better than this beer. Good name and label though...

Pours a light copper, with mid-sized head. Aroma of bread and malt, with some hops. Flavor is very malty, with some bitter hops in the background. I prefer a more hop-forward IPA.

r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Light and crisp, fruity with citrus zest. A bit of doughy malt. Slightly hoppy and bitter finish but not overly so. Fairly in the middle.

hotstuff (5201) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Rated on 9-04-2016 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized frothy, fizzy cream head that mostly diminished, slightly hazy amber copper body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma presents citrus hops, lemon, lime, tropical fruit, earthy, bready, and caramel malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, lemon, orange, lime, tropical fruit, sweet, malt, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. The ABV is hidden and this beer is easy drinking for the style. This beer has a definite malt presence in the aroma and taste. This beer is worth trying and a beer that I would buy again.

12 fl.oz bottle. Klares dunkel goldenes Bier mit mittelgroßen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch harzig bitter hopfig, grapefruit. Geschmack sehr hopfig bitter, grapefruit, harzig, okay!

nuplastikk (6358) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
12oz bottle. Deep and malty. I assume they use Mandarina hops in it, but hard to verify that. Mango comes through the most, in a subdued and more natural way than others, add some fleshy depth. Resinous piny hop tones behind the creamy fruity tones. Kind of awkward. OK.
