COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed exclusively for El Verano, Danny Meyer’s taco bar. It features sweet orange peel in the kettle and dry-hopping with Simcoe, giving the beer a bright orangey aroma. Very nice with the tacos!

Draft sample at Dilly Cafe AKA Naranjito. Poured clear copper color with medium white fizzy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Cask at ChurchKey. Pours a clear orange with a decent, white, fluffy head that has good retention and leaves spotty lace. Very nice aroma of quite literally peaches and cream ice cream. Taste is unsweetened oatmeal, earthy malt, overripe peaches. Very nice.

On draught at Winking Lizard as Naranjito. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of mildly spiced hops and caramel. Light, clean body with flavors of light hops, citrus and caramel. Short, lightly bitter hops finish with no real aftertaste. Pretty bland overall but really easy to drink a giant mug.

Draft @ Dilly Cafe. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The nose is lightly floral, pale malts and mild citrus. The flavor is biscuity with citrus and herbal hops. Finish is dry with a tad too much carbonation. It was worth trying once.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Draft. Pours an amber orange body with a white head. Hoppy pine musky dank dingy malt character, tastes like a dirty line with stank malt build up. This was downright bad, not further explanation needed.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Tap at Copperfields. Pours a bright orange amber with a nice white head- sticky. Hoppy dank simcoe hops- piney and citrus with some grapefruit- orange zest and a phenolic belgian yeast. Doughy malt flavor, some cookie dough, yeasty phenolic, with good sappy simcoe hops, tropical fruits, orange zest, a bit soapy and oily- juicy hops- clean and lightly bitter finish. I seemed to like this more than most.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
On tap at Winking Lizard Crosswoods as Brooklyn Naranjito. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Creamy and corny malt nose with caramel and some citrus. Piney hop flavor with a bit of citrus and a dank malt finish. Tastes more like an English pale than an American and the citrus character wasn’t as prevalent as I would have expected based on the description.

On cask at Churchkey after the Brooklyn beer dinner. Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate orange color with a white head. The nose is really lacking in nearly all respects, with some hints of orange and citrus and some slightly sweet grain in the background. The taste and feel add in a bit of bitterness. Light body. A bit of orange peel is all that really comes through besides some quite mild sweetness. Drinks pretty well, although there isn’t too much to come back for. Serving type: cask Reviewed on: 10-19-2010

@ Citi Field for a Met game. Had three of them and they are tasty. I wish this was bottled. Great orange and citrus aroma with enough sweet toasty malt to back it up. This goes for the flavor as well. The huge hop burps after were even great. Light-medium body with a nice hop finish and mild bitterness.
