Description 

Enjoy a SoCal summer year-round with Tangerine Soul Style IPA. This delectable brew is a one way ticket to taste bud paradise. Relax and take in the brilliant, golden color and fresh aroma of effervescent tangerine. Tangerine zest carries throughout, accented by bright, floral, tropical flavors and a juicy finish. Brewed with American malts and a blend of Citra and Cascade hops, this is a beautiful brew to behold.

Bright aromas of mouthwatering orange cream ice cream, mimosas made with freshly squeezed oranges and little bits of pulp, and slices of Lady Alice apple esters immediately leap out of the glass. This beer's appearance is of an orange-tinted, fine cream-colored head that does not persist but creates complex, tightknit, circular crochet foam patterns when I move the glass around. The beer is an opaque pale gold color with slow, fine carbonation rising from the sides of the glass. Flavors of freshly brewed tea with orange slices, low pancake, low freshly-dried orange peel, and medium lemon and grapefruit pith are evident upon the first sip, and moderate pine resin hop bitterness lead into a clean, low, white bread finish. The aftertaste is a dry, pleasant balance of grapefruit pith and pine resin. Medium-low body, moderately delicate, egg white foam creaminess and medium-plus carbonation combine with low hop astringency, low alcohol heat, and slightly watery character. Overall, this is a solid IPA with a balanced orange character.
