Origin: Germany. A daughter of Cascade, along with Hallertau Blanc and Hüll Melon, and first released in 2012.
Usage: Aroma. A tangerine machine when used for late, whirlpool, and dry hop additions, Mandarina Bavaria is quickly finding support in the brewhouse for American IPA and variants, black ales, saisons, Brett fermentations, and other beers where a definite fruity and strongly hoppy character is beneficial.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Intense pineapple, lemon and citrus flavors with a resinous, herbal followup. Sweet and distinctive.
