Citradelic Tangerine IPA

New Belguim Brewing (Fort Collins, CO)
"Set adrift on a kaleidoscopic wave of hoppiness brought to you by a mystical marriage of Citra hops and tangerine peel, which elevates each sip onto a plane of pure tropical, fruity pleasure. Citradelic’s namesake hop and fruit combine to jam with visions of additional hops like citrusy Mandarina Bavaria, tropical Azzaca, and fruity Galaxy for a colorful explosion that’s grounded by just a touch of malty sweetness. "

Much more malty than I expected. The citrus is there, but very subtle. I was a bit disappointing. Maybe the second will be better.

ABV 6%, IBU 50
Hops: Nugget, Crystal, Centennial, Azzaca, Cascade, Citra, Chinook, Galaxy, Mandarina Bavaria, Simcoe
Malt: Pale, Caramel 120

Tangerine infused orange peel
