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

Tap @ Lompoc - Killer aroma, nice dry hopped, with lots of zesty citric fruits, big hops and a great malt body, has that fruit pie feel on the palate, enveloping and creamy with a bitter bite in the finish.

Tap at Horsebrass Pub. Decent beer, orange/amber colored. Fairly clear. Moderately lived white head leaves fair lacing behind. Medium bodied. Decent balance with a nice bit of citric bitterness that lingers in the finish. Fair to good IPA.

On tap at someplace in Portland. Not sure if the orange only refers to the color, or what. No orange flavor. Dry hopped? Perhaps, but not overly so.

On tap tonight at the Horse Brass. Nice looking orangy amber ale with a tiny white head that lasts no time, some lace left. Aroma is pleasant but nothing special ..of hops and malts with a touch or orange peel zest. The taste was exhilarating to start with the hops blending well with the orange peel falavours but after a while it bacame dullish,but themalts held throughout. Mouthfeel was rather on the thin side and average for style This is a nice beer but for once I think this would be better served quite chilled

Pours amber with great clarity and a white head. Very hoppy throughout with some juicy citrus hops and a crisp finish. Doesn’t quite have the sweetness that I normally find in an IPA, i would probably think of this more as a hoppy pale.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Golden straw colour. Flowery aroma hints of quenching capabilities. Fresh citrusy character - light and grapefruity. A little astringency. Light malt notes. Similar to an English golden ale.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
On tap at the Rose and Raindrop in Portland with Ratebeerians galore. Light orange, clear with a foamy head. Piney hop aroma with some orange. Flavour is bitter and orange but the hops simply dominate too much.

3fourths (8603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Sampled @ Rose & Raindrop, Portland. Clear light orange color. Certainly dry-hopped, with a sweet piney cascade hop aroma, light bitterness with some creamy orange hop flavor and some astringency in the thin finish.

Medium orange old color. Small head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. Nice dry hoppy finish. Touches of orange peel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
