On tap at the brewpub. This one was a fairly enjoyable brew, which came across as far more of a floral session IPA than an APA. All to the good in the infernal oven of a summer. Cloudy orange pour, almost like the fresh-squeezed orange juice of beers. Moderate creamy head, and an inviting citric nose. Mouthfeel and palate are a bit thin, alas, with a slightly overdone hop attack. But in all, I thought the flavors were satisfying and not wholly one-dimensional.

On tap at Lennies / Bloomington Brewing Co on 14 March 2010. No ABV stated. Hazy orange colour. Floral hop aroma. Seville (bitter) orange flavour. Quite a lot of bitterness on the palate, lingering into the aftertaste. Maybe a bit too astringent.

Not bad, but one of those hoppy for the sake of hoppy beers, with little by way of subtlety or depth of flavor to make it worth repeat tastings.

EithCubes (4625) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Hazy golden sample pulled at Lennie’s. Short clingy white head. Hoppy nose but indeterminate and dull. Taste is hoppy and strongly bitter with dish soap/cleanser qualities in the taste department, but also in the palate-cleansing department. Some light astringency despite the dulled citric elements. Medium0full body. Meh.
