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

KyotoLefty (7556) - 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 (452) - 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 (8530) - 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 (2008) - 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.

Syzzer (616) - Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2014
From 2-23-14 on tap @ lardos with my hot wife. Great oily white head, cloudy orange color. Not much for hoppiness, definite bitter component. Over ripe orange peel finish. 5.9 bd. Jd- 4 back of throat bitter, not much too it

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
On tap at Grain and Gristle in Portland. Balanced nose: rough hop and sweet caramel. Deep copper/gold color. Mild pleasant hpppy initial / hops spread out over the tongue in mid and some smoky notes emerge / balances nicely in final. Medium body and chewy. A new one from Caldera. Seems like a cross between a pale and an IPA. Well-made stuff.

deaconmike (422) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
On tap at Post Street Ale House in Spokane. Golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and fruit. Taste is largely bitter with a fair amount of resin and a bit of grapefruit. Medium body, good carbonation levels. Pretty good IPA.
