COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This aint no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine pure, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (youd likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didnt tell you it was there). Were not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the I want my beer to taste like fruit juice crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear, gold (SRM 5), effervescent body.......nose is citrus with tangerine, light pineapple, mild malts with cracker, bread tones, mild allium, hints of pine, balance to the hops.....taste is tangerine, mild pineapple, light cereal, with bread, cracker tones, light allium, finishing with moderate hops bitterness, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium light body, mild alcohol, high carbonation. The allium is a bit too present and is dependent on the hops used. This is the only flaw, other than the mild malts, but it still is an easy drinker. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

20-APR-2017, draft @Stone Brewing Berlin, part of a flight @Celebration of Dank event, with Ulklbben. Hazy golden with a lasting, lacing, off-white head. Grape fruit, over ripe fruit, exotic fruit, tangerine, touch of kerosene. Sweet, West Coast style IPA(!) :-)

Tangerine in the smell as advertised, but a skunky note battles for notice. I can barely make out overriped pineapple, with a sweet kick. Mid yellow body is hazy with some sediment, the cap is thin and is leaving spotty lacing. Flavor is a biting bitterness of citrus rind and pine, the bitterness lingers for a while.

poisoneddwarf (2475) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2017
Bomber. Bottled 1/26/17; expires in four days. Aroma is tangerine (rind and flesh), pineapple, faint caramel, light breadiness. Pours hazy orange with a thick long-sustaining off-white head that laces a bit. Taste is highly bitter with tangerine and faint pineapple notes, slight age. Its still good, but I wish I could have had it fresher.

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 20, 2017
Medium light amber color. Big citrusy nose with modest tangerine notes. Off-Dry, light body with modest bitterness. Finishes dry bitter with tangerine notes lingering. Meh, ok.

Aroma is tangerine, pine and very spicy. The flavor is tangerine, grapefruit pine needles, very slightly nutty and a spicy/dry/lingering bitter finish.

2017-04-13. Pale orange body is lightly hazy with some floaters, modest beige head. Aroma s lightly alcoholic, moderate citrus, light citrus. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, muted tangerine and hints of pineapple. Tangerine comes out more as it warms. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but fails to meet expectation - needs more tangerine for my tastes. Which is apparently my fault based on the anti-fruit juice rant on the label! 7/3/7/3/15-16 Bottle shared by blankboy.

fidelis83 (2357) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2017
Hazy orange to peach pour with a two finger, kinda fluffy, white head. Aroma is tangerine heavy citrus, mineral notes, light fruity esters, a little bread and cracker. Flavor is dominated by tangerine, but theres plenty of citrus coming from hoppy sources, a little some cracker and biscuit. Theres a pretty pronounced citrus peel bitterness, makes me think they might not have peeled the tangerines before they were pureed, which is kinda weird. Medium body, creamy to juicy feel, light to medium, blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff, definitely nails the mouthfeel.

Strong citrus hops and a slight dry finish. Very refreshing and bold and enjoyable!

edwardbass (827) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2017
Very hazy yellow color with a smallish head. LOTS of citrus / tangerine on the aroma. Taste on the first taste or two is strong citrus, citrus rind and peppery hops, a bit of tropical fruit and nearly perfect malt balance. On subsequent tastes the citrus doesnt jump out at you as much, but its definitely there. Very, very good IPA. Im halfway thinking "they should make this one into a regular 6-pack", but Im not sure Im completely on board with that.
