Stone Tangerine Express IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

http://www/twitch.tv/beergeekgaming http://facebook.com/beergeeknation http://www.beergeeknation.com Tweets by beergeeknation Stone Tangerine Express IPA Stone Brewing 6.7% ABV Beer Geek Nation Rating: B 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. Read More »
