Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Light citrusy aroma. I honestly expected more tangerine in here. Not very distinct. A bit or orange rind, some light malts and straw. Color is a golden orange. Light a zippy in the mouth. Strong bitterness but I am really not picking up the oranges. Grapefruit pith, bitter orange peel, chalky grains and lots of herbal notes. Bitterness is a bit on the harsh side, brew seems to be very bereft of any sweetness. Light alcohol presence. Finish dry and bitter and pasty. I expected this to be much better than this.

12 ounce can from Total Wine in Sacramento, mild tangerine finish, bitter, slightly cloudy. brigg (691) - New York, USA - AUG 13, 2017
(Bottle) Cloudy body with a medium, airy white head. Floral citrus aroma--orange/tangerine, some pine. Medium body; sticky and slightly oily mouthfeel; lively carbonation. Mildly sweet, lots of citrus, some pine, toasted grain, bitter finish. Refreshing. scarletfire65 (1472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Bomber at home, last one before the US Open. Orange gold color. Huge fluffy head. The aroma is sweet citrus, apple, floral hops. The beer is medium bodied with strong tangerine notes. Well attenuated, finish is a bit thin, moderatley bitter. Good overall. Aurelius (5379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Decent, faux-painted bomber. Slightly blurry, apricot colored brew with a fluffy buff head which collapses quickly. Really interesting aroma - citrus, marmalade, almost chemical but in a good way, fairly sweet and way fruity. An edgy bitterness, with a little astringency. Not sweet, fruity, rind-y. Acidic finish - palate wasn’t where I wanted this to be. Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee.

Bomber pours an almost clear orange/golden color with big fluffy white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of citrus and pine hops. Taste is bitter and juicy, with a long dry finish that teases you to the next sip. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. A very solid IPA which has more than just tangerines. blkcld5150 (8) - - AUG 6, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 One of the better Stone offerings lately! Nice hop balance to go with the slight citrus flavors. Quite nice Jpmercer (50) - shakopee, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2017
This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, 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 (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re 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.
Tastes more like an IPA than anything.

Draft. Pours orange-amber with white head. Tangerine, grapefruit, and pine aroma. Tangerine, grapefruit, and some resiny pine. Dry finish. Beer5000 (6545) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2017
Tap @ Cardinal. Unclear orange golden body with a small but lacing white head. Nice and very refreshing aroma, citric, tropical and tangerine of course, with a hint of pale malt. Flavor has a light base of pale malt dominated by fruits like aroma and fine bitterness. Well balanced body and long lasting, refreshing aftertaste. Nice one.
