Beer God's Notes

Well, this session IPA is incredibly refreshing. This instantly became my new favorite golfing beer.  It’s easy enough to drink where I don’t feel like I’m heavy and bloated but has enough flavor in it to make me feel like I’m actually drinking a beer.  Sometimes session IPA’s have a weird flavor (and specifically a weird aftertaste), but Tangier does not.  Maybe it’s the way that the tangerine peels play with the cirtrusy hops, but whatever it is, it works for me.

Tangier Label

Where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean is the ancient city of Tangier. This confluence has made Tangier a cultural waypoint for millennia. From Greek heroes to Cold War spies and uprisings, Tangier has inspired thousands of legendary stories. It is written that before his battle with the giant Antaeus, Hercules rested in a nearby cave. But where myths end, our tale begins. Tangier is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with spicy citrus aromas and stone fruit flavors. These flavors, with the addition of lightly roasted malts and brilliant hop bitterness, make Tangier a beverage as refreshing as it is exotic. The approachable 4.6% abv yields more time to enjoy the synergy between the tangerine peel and spicy, citrusy, Azacca hops. Enjoy Tangier in celebration of your epic adventure.
