kermis (9070) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours slight hazy amber with a big off white head. Aroma of orange, kind of soft like those slightly fake orange juice drinks, with citrus and light malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Light to light medium bodied with a watery juice drink palate and soft carbonation.

tricksta_p (2923) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma of malt, biscuit, ripe orange, caramel. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. More malty and less fruity than I had hoped.

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 (856) - 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 (8751) - 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 (465) - 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.
