I'm experimenting with a pineapple beer. I read the Mandarina hops add a flowery, spicy and citrus-like flavor with an orange bouquet. I'm going to dry-hop with it. Wish me luck.

Great Flavor
Used in a Red Ale with Centennial for Bittering. Paired up with Amarillo for Flavor and Aroma additions .... excellent flavor combination!

Helped me win a silver medal at the 2017 Ohio State Fair
When I read about these hops, I envisioned a blonde ale that used them for bittering and flavor, along with bitter orange peel, sweet orange peel, and orange blossom honey added late in primary fermentation. I started with a blonde ale recipe, tweaked it a little to my taste, and brewed it. It turned out perfectly, so I entered it into the 2017 Ohio State Fair Homebrewing Competition. It took second place against 24 competitors in the Fruit Beer category. I couldn't be more pleased. I'll definitely make the beer again!

Great Wheat Hop
Used this in a wheat ale. Half an ounce for bittering and half an ounce for flavoring. Turned out great.

Smoother than Citra
I use this hop only during the last 20 minutes typically as a late hop addition or aroma addition. I have not yet used it for dry hopping. It's good for adding the more mellow and tangerine like citrusey flavors to beers such as wheat beers, hefeweizens, IPA's, Belgians, citrus/tropical fruit beers, and Pale Ales. I imagine it can be used for other styles too since it has a fairly smooth flavor. Citra is a bit more pronounced and sharp in it's characteristics and bittering than Mandarina Bavaria. I often use it with Citra, and also find that it pairs well with Spalt, Sprisselspalt, Saaz, and Centennial.

A great hop overall. Not to be used to as the primary bittering hop, but great as a flavor and aroma hop.

Great Hop
I used it in a blood orange wit and an English style pale and was very happy with the way they turned out. Highly recommended

I got a nice sweet orange peel type flavor in an APA. Nice aroma too but not as strong as some of the US or Pacific fruity hops.
