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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with great clarity and a white head. Very hoppy throughout with some juicy citrus hops and a crisp finish. Doesnt quite have the sweetness that I normally find in an IPA, i would probably think of this more as a hoppy pale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
