A conundrum in the world of beer styles. This ale does not fit any conventional beer style. Orange in color, this beer has hop characteristics of oranges and tangerines.
Grist: Premium Two Row, Crystal
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe

MarcoDL (3218) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Draft @ beertemple. Aroma of strong orange zest and citrus. Taste of fresh orange, citrus, mild caramel and some fresh fruits. Nice hoppy orange juice. I don’t get the low ratings.

krumbum (752) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Clean citrus aromas. Glowing deep orange. Thin layer of head mostly ring and isles. A crisp hop that bitters out to an orange peel and finishes with a a refreshing citrus pith flavor.

KyotoLefty (8141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
Tap. Orange color, lace. Light citrus nose with biscuity malt. A bit milder in the orange hops than I expected, though they come through a bit. Somewhat sweet, biscuity. Ok.

Jur (458) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Clue is in the title, orange IPA. In colour, nose and flavour. Balanced though, not overly fruity, hints of orange, nicely dry and hoppy finish.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Draft at Whole Foods. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was hops, piney, caramel malt, tangerine. Tasted hoppy, with notes of pine, tangerine, pineapple. Complex, but perhaps a bit light on carbonation. Well above average.

NikkTwist (2142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Orange gold pour with a fizzy/foamy white head. Light lace. Body feels much thicker than anticipated. Dried oranges. Tupelo honey. Light caramel malts. Not overly sweet. Full but a but bland. Mild toasted grain flavors. Not a lot of hop flavors to note. Buttery. Very smooth drinking. Not typical at all.
