[ Keg ][ 12oz ][ @John’s ][ $7 ][ Tulip ][ 05.29.15 ]
hazy orange, thin cloudy white head, spotty islands. Extreme orange peel nose, light weed esque hops, tangerine and perfume dominating with warmth. Sticky orange sweetness all over, caramel heavy up front. Burning hi-heat mid before sticky, stale hop and lead in the finish. Heavy caramel orange sugar bomb, standard at this point.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a very hazed yellow-orange color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, fading to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is biggest of some sweeter tropical aromas with a big tangerine and pineapple smell. Along with these smells comes some aromas of a pine and a good level of grapefruit hop along with just a bit of a floral hop smell rounding out the profile. Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat fruity taste upfront with the tangerine in the nose the heaviest, but with other notes of mango and pineapple mixed within. Along with these flavors are some pine and floral hop tastes as well as a little bit of a grapefruit hop taste. While the grapefruit is lighter upfront it really kicks it up as the taste moves onto the end, bringing with it tons of sour bitterness. All while the grapefruit increases, the fruitiness decreases a bit and with a little bit of yeast and grass that come to the tongue at the end, one is left with a rather biting bitter grapefruit juice flavor that sticks in the mouth well afterward. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The lighter body was good for the sour and bitter grapefruit flavors of the brew, but a bit of a higher carbonation would have been a bit more appropriate, so overall the feel was a little poor. Overall – Ah.. It wasn’t awful, but was a little too thick on the grapefruit with it leaving a slightly off bitter grapefruit juice flavor to linger on the tongue.

keepersj12 (2945) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Something wasn’t quite right with this beer. It had a spiciness that I couldn’t put my finger on. Maybe a bad batch, I don’t know.

Pours light gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, toast, floral and earthy. Taste is moderate bitters and a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, above average carbonation, smooth with a little stickiness.

kramer (5390) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Tap. Pouts a slightly hazy gold body with a nice one finger frothy white head that slowly faded to a thin film. The nose is really great, lots of orange zest mixing with citrusy hops to perfection. This should be the official drink of breakfast, much better than a mimosa. The flavor is moderately bitter from the hops, but there’s a really bitter, oily, pithy taste to the oranges. Tastes like I’m chewing on an orange peel. I can’t really tell if the hops are citrusy or tropical tasting since the orange is so overpowering. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. The bitterness Really lingers and is rather harsh. Don’t care for this one.

I think the otrnage rind taste gives it a great balance and clean note that makes it very drinkable. More than a Pale Ale for sure.

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours clear orange with a small white head. The aroma is floral and light. The taste is a nice light hop with a citrus balance. Nice.
