No but it should be quite citrusy.

I think it's supposedly a Cascade offshoot - very citrusy. I'd really like to try it. I think Stone used it in a beer last year.

That is what I found about it (http://www.baywa.eu/en/): Mandarina Bavaria has a pleasantly fruity
aroma revealing a strong tangerine note with slightly sweet aroma impressions. Alpha: 8.5 – 10.5 %
Beta: 5 – 6.5 %, Co-Humulone: approx. 33 %.

I'll try it in a wheat ale.

Pale Malt (2 Row) Bel (9,0 EBC) 45,9 %
Wheat Malt, Ger (3,9 EBC) Grain 45,9 %
Carawheat (Weyermann) (98,5 EBC) Grain 4,6 %
Mandarina Bavaria [7,80 %] - Boil 30,0 min Hop- 6,2 IBUs
Mandarina Bavaria [7,80 %] - Boil 15,0 min Hop - 16,0 IBUs
Mandarina Bavaria [7,80 %] - Boil 0 min
SafBrew Ale S-33

I have a pound of it. Planning in brewing with it soon. Been working my way through some interesting hops lately and really looking forward to that one.

To my taste it has a sweeter(?) character than the other C hops. More like a fruit salad than a citrus flavor.
I just dry hopped an APA with it and it reminds me of a beer that I did with Belma and Calypso.

Interesting.  My next brew is an APA with Mandarina hops.  Your comments make me wonder if I should cut back on the C40.  I don't want it to be cloying, but I do like some residual sweetness in my APA's and IPA's.  What do you think?

Summit will give you some onion when used that late in the boil.  Try it at 20 minutes to avoid the onion.

I've never used Mandarina, but it's on my to do list. I say go with the recipe as is (except for maybe moving the Summit)- it's not that much crystal. I'll be curious to see what you think on the hops.

I do an IPA that all summit under 20 min. (see Griffin Spit in the recipe wiki).  No onion.

I brewed a Red X/Mandarina Bavaria SMaSH lager that is still conditioning. My first impressions were "meh" - it seemed like mainly noble hops, with a touch of citrus. With a name like that, I was expecting Summit (hold the onions).

I've been finding that a lot of the new German hops just aren't living up to their billing compared to the expectations based on the newer US and NZ varieties. Based on the name, I don't think I'll be playing with Hüll Melon, but I'm still curious about Hallertau Blanc.

Now I'm second-guessing if I should balance the Mandarina with Summit!  I definitely want Tangerine out of this.  I am also confident that the chance of onion is small, but even if I do get some, it should dissipate. 

I was going to do an all-Summit APA until I found some Mandarina online.  I'll probably go with the recipe above since I have 2 8oz. packs of Mandarina coming, and I hate to not use all the hops in a pack.

I had to run down to Heritage U. where my wife works, and having just had this discussion of Summit hops, I passed this hop field, and thought, "Summit hops are the only ones that can be short trellised.  I wonder if this is a field of Summit?"  So I stopped and asked the owner.  Indeed, Summit.  Left to its own devices because the market for Summit is so bad.  Apparently others have found this hop wanting.
