SEATTLE, WASH. – May 30, 2018 – Loaded with citrusy tangerine and amplified by a quintet of hops, Redhook’s refreshing Tangelic Halo Tangerine IPA is launching throughout the Northwest just as the temperatures start to rise. The new summer seasonal is available in six and 12-packs of 12-ounce bottles. Tangelic Halo is the second new seasonal release from Redhook head brewer Nick Crandall in 2018.
“During the summer months we wanted to give beer drinkers a brew that was refreshing, satisfying and provided a citrusy punch,” said Crandall. “We knew the hops — Apollo, Citra, Manderina, Bavaria and Lemondrop used in Tangelic Halo would play well with a citrusy addition, so we added tangerine to balance out the flavors of the beer.”
Aromas of Tangelic Halo recall the smells of summer: Fresh cut grass, tangerine and citrus fill the nose and pave the way for a dry, straight forward malt character on the palate. At 6.2 percent ABV and 40 IBU, Tangelic Halo is the perfect accompaniment to Summer.
Tangelic Halo is a summer seasonal that will be available in six and 12-packs of 12oz bottles from May – September of 2018, as well as in Redhook’s IPA variety 12-pack, the Hoppy Hook Pack. Tangelic Halo will also be available on draft at Seattle-area pubs and taprooms.
To celebrate the release, Redhook is throwing a launch party at Brewlab in Capitol Hill on Wednesday, June 20. Tangelic Halo will be flowing on draft and in bottles throughout the day. Brewlab will also tap a new small-batch collaboration with Imperfect Produce – Tangerine Helles – brewed with Imperfect’s own, ugly-looking but still great-tasting mandarin. Imperfect Produce, the produce delivery service that saves produce from ending up in the landfill, will be on hand and attendees can learn more about their noble mission and service. Brewlab guests can also enter to win a six-month Imperfect Produce subscription.
Tangelic Halo Tangerine IPA
Tangelic Halo is loaded with naturally citrusy hops that are heightened by the addition of tangerines. Fresh citrus on the nose gives way to bursts of tangerine and pitchy citrus. At just 40 IBUs, it’s a smooth, well-balanced IPA with a dry, straight-forward malt finish.
Hops: Apollo, Citra, Mandarina, Bavaria, Lemondrop

Redhook opened a 10-barrel brewpub called Redhook Brewlab in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle in 2017.
