Appearance

The IPA pours a nearly opaque burnt orange hue and is topped by a thick cap of loose and soapy ivory-white foam. The head persists briefly and reduces down to a bubbly band. A smattering of lace and residue are left on the sides and some sediment is observed floating in the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is faint but wafts the nose with a sweet scent of stone fruit and mandarin oranges.

Flavor

The palate begins with bready malt that sweetens slightly with mandarin orange juice. The hops take over from there and impart bright citrus flavors of grapefruit and orange. Bready malt rounds out the tasting.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a medium body and matching carbonation. Finishes dryly with a moderate astringency.

Overall

Its head retention could be better. The aroma isn’t particularly strong but it’s pleasant enough. The palate yields a lot bite from its 50 IBUs but Man Juice makes good use of its orange juice flavor for balance. And there’s a tartness in the palate that helps make it all the more refreshing. While its’s not perfect, Man Juice is a brew that’s easy to tilt back and enjoy.
