Pours a vivid and remarkable orange shade. Very fruity and a floral aroma can be detected, pleasant enough but semi-bland. Interesting beer, let’s see some more orange ales!

Ungstrup (30447) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2008
A golden beer wtih a thick white head. The aroma is sweet matly with notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of spices and oranges, leading to a dry spicy and yeasty finish. The body is thin.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Draft at New Old Lompoc Brewery, Portland, OR. Ivory head that was mostly lasting, decent amount of lacing, transparent, minimal amount of carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was bitter, hoppy, fruity, and lightly malty. Flavor was bitter, hoppy and fruity. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable brew that was not over-the-top hops and not too bitter tasting. Worthy of a try.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Thought this was a red when I had it, but orange will suffice. Nice pour from what I could tell under poor lighting. Medium-sized white head. amber-copper body. Great floral sweet fruity hop notes. Smooth and quite qualpable. Finish was medium to dry with a bitterness that was not overwhelming.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Draft: Pours a crystal clear light orange color with small white head. Aroma of bready malts and lots of citrus and floral notes. Flavor is lightly malty and a little grainy, medium hop bitterness with lots of hop flavor, just the way i like it. I am picking up amarillo hops, some orange rind characteristics, floral hoppyness, slight grapefruit flavor. Finishes dry and crisp.

thedm (5139) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from the Old Lampoc brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a and a good lacing. The aroma was malty and bready. The crisp and clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops.

toddk1963 (3) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2007 does not count
Almost like a IPA without the heavy malt and alcohol qualities. A truely quafable beer for the hop-heads. Give me a pitcher of this on a hot day in July at the Ashland Creek Bar and Grill and I’m in heaven.

On Tap at Rogue Ales Public House - Astoria Pours out a hazy orange topped off white head. A lot of citrus on this one also hops. Not bad.

Tap at my home away from home- Concordia Ale House. Orange amber, with a thick tan/white head. This beer eminates the dry hop phenomenon: huge citrus and herbal bang right in the nose.. Mmm hops! Flavor is initially citrusy, orange peel, and more beautiful hops, with a strong bittering hit combined with light biscuity flavors, winding up with long-lasting hop bitterness. Very enjoyable!
