WARNING: This beer is Tangerously Hoppy! It’s also Tangerously good! Ok, ok, enough with the tangerine puns (we couldn’t help ourselves, they’re just too fun). The truth is, this tangerine IPA’s citrus and hoppy flavors and aromas, coupled with its strong malt backbone, make it so good you may never want to share it… and this could lead to a loss in friends. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast, and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2. Screw on lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close

    4. Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5. After all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to top of keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


    Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract,(not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened can and BrewMax LME in hot tap water.

    2. Place the contents of the Amarillo Hops into a muslin sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.

    3. Using your sanitized tools grate and juice the tangerines. (What you do not use you will store in a airtight container for later use).

    4. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring this to a boil and remove from heat

    5. Once removed from heat add the BrewMax LME and mix until dissolved. Then add the pot back to heat and bring to a low boil.

    6. Add the Amarillo Hopsack and half of the tangerine zest to the pot and let it boil for 10 minutes. While this is boiling, add the Cascade hops to the 2nd hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.

    7. After the 10-minute boil has passed, add the 2nd hop sack to the pot and remove it from heat.

    8. Open the can of Brewing Extract and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    9. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    10. Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

    11. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    12. Sprinkle the US-05 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 75° F (20°-25° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 21 days.

    STEP 3: Adding Extras

    Adding extras is the process of adding additional ingredients to a beer that will impart more flavor and aroma to your finished brew.

    1. On Day 14 of fermentation add the tangerine juice, the rest of the zest, and any pulp (pulp is optional). Just open and add it to the fermenter with the fruit, and quickly close the lid.


    After 21 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (24 total). At this point, it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use

    2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw-on caps (or cover with a metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solutions into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3. Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide. 

    4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5. Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6. Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off-flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by BigGaz from 4th times the Charm! 4th Mr Beer and this is the Winner so far. Nice hoppy IPA ! Favourite beer at the moment is Funky Buddha Hop Gun and this gets me into the same ballpark at least according to my taste. My previous 3 beers have been drinkable but this one is really good. It has no yeasty smell like my previous beers, It has a great head when poured. According to the Hydrometer it is coming in at 5.6% abv. Not sure where the rest of my alcohol went? Brewed at 69F for 3 weeks, bottles stored at around 72F for another 3 weeks and will not make it to week 4. I used Mandarins as I could not find Tangerines but I cant really taste them in the beer maybe my pallet is not trained enough yet but since I started brewing with Mr Beer back in June of this year I definitely appreciate the different varieties and styles of beer more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Dan J from Pretty good IPA I have had this bottle conditioning for around 2 weeks now and it just keeps getting better. I had one after 24 hours in the fridge and my friend said it tasted like beer with orange flavored medicine. He's and idiot lol but it wasn't great. My other friend had it a week later and liked it. Trust the process on this one. The only thing I did different was grate fresh zest when it was added instead of saving it from start like the instructions tell you. I also did not read the directions that tell you to put ingredients in the fridge that you are not going to immediately use. Overall a good first IPA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueZebra from Best beer I've ever made! I brewed this beer on St. Patrick's Day in anticipation of the upcoming summer. I followed the recipe exactly except I used mandarins instead of tangerines. (I couldn't find tangerines at the store, but I learned that all tangerines are classified as a type of mandarin orange, but not all mandarin oranges are tangerines. Close enough, right?) The wort tasted great and had such promise! Added the reserved juice & zest and dry-hopped the Cascade hops at 1 week of fermentation as per the directions. Still very excited about this beer. Then, came bottling time. During bottling on 4/2, the beer tasted like a bit like a screwdriver with a bitter orange flavor and some hoppiness! My excitement had turned into grave concern. When I cracked open the first one on 5/10, I was ecstatic to learn the flavors had balanced out during conditioning. This beer is delicious! The best I've ever made. A few night later I happened to be out to eat and had the opportunity to try Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. My beer is a slightly less hoppy version of the tasty Deschutes beer. I'm guessing I could replicate the Deschutes merely by dry-hopping a couple more times with the Cascade hops. Try this one! You won't be disappointed!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Gary6R from Tangerines Not in Season? Several previous reviewers noted they were not able to find fresh tangerines, but I was confident that wouldn't be an issue with our local highly-regarded grocery store. But I was wrong; no mandarin oranges available either. So my note here has nothing to do with the actual beer (still looking forward to trying it) but a suggestion to the friendly Mr. Beer marketing staff that they may want to add something like "In season" as part of the ingredients list. (My wife wasn't surprised tangerines weren't going to be available in June here in the northeast but I apparently didn't give it enough prior thought.) I found some tangerine extract syrup available on another home-brew site so will be trying that instead. And will report the results later of what I'm confident will be another Mr. Beer success.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by CTKev from Fantastic! I've found my new favorite brew! This one is amazing -- great interplay with the citrusy hops & tangerines. The first bottle was a little more bitter than I like but the next bottle a few days later had mellowed to a dream drink! And the tangerines I used were a little past their prime. I can hardly wait to see how good this is with fresh ones next time! Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by ReddBrews from Great IPA I’ll add to the chorus praising this beer. Nicely Bitter, yet with a smooth mouthfeel I can only imagine the tangerine provides. Admittedly, I really like IPAs. Ive brewed half a dozen or so Mr Beer products, including other IPAs and this is the first I can definitely say I’ll be brewing again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mt50 from Great IPA I wanted to try this one for years but finally ordered it. This reminds me of a good NW style double IPA, with added bitterness from the tangerine zest. I originally tried one at 5ree weeks, and it was good. Now, after four weeks, it’s even better. Mine looked a lot like the picture with a strong, foamy head like the picture, and about the same color. The IPA bitterness is strong, but the flavor is balanced. It tastes as good as a commercial IPA. I thought it would be a fruity, citrusy drink, but the zest from the tangerine combine with the bitterness from the hops and give it a strong, hoppy flavor. Slight tangerine aroma. Reminds me of a Sierra Nevada double IPA, with the background taste from the zest. No sweetness to this at all. If you like double IPAs, you’ll enjoy this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by HopDrop from Excellent IPA and Easy to Brew This was the 2nd mrb batch I ever brewed. I couldn't find tangerines in the store and substituted some mandarin oranges. The result? A great tasting, easy to drink IPA. I've shared with a few friends and all can't believe this is my second batch of beer. Not much fruit flavor in this but just a nice overall balanced IPA. Not sure if this has to do with substitution or if this is normal for this brew. I'll be making this again soon!

    What is total number of days the beer can be left in the “ conditioning” stage? Will the taste improve with a longer conditioning period?

    Asked by: semp53
    For this particular beer, you likely won't have any improvement after about 4 weeks of conditioning. Some beers, especially the darker or higher alcohol varieties, can bottle condition far longer. Cheers!

    Step 3 of the instructions mentions dry hopping with the second package of Cascade hops, but only one is included in the order. A third hop sack IS included, but no hops. Should another package of hops been included in the order???
