"Less hops than I’d have thought, especially since it’s a pretty new beer. A little disappointing there. But, the orange starts pleasant and builds from there, leaving a pleasant tingle on the tongie and a decent aroma. Without the orange, this would be a pretty crappy pale ale, but with it? Not too shabby."

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy amber with a large head.
Nose shows sweet malt with cookie dough characters, a faint blood orange note and some soft spicy/floral hops.
Same sweet malt and cookie dough as flavours along with a sweet note from the blood orange. A fair bit of hop bitterness in the finish along with spicy and earthy hops. Very drinkable.

Transfer from BA review on 5-5-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy orange color with a slight copper tint. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head that has a good level of retention. The head slowly fades over time to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The smell is big of a grainy like smell mixed with an orange citrus as well as a grapefruit hop like aroma. Mixed with these smells are some other lighter fruit aromas as well as a little bit of a grassy aroma.
Taste - The taste starts with an tangerine and bready flavor with a fair amount of graininess. The tangerine flavor remains, but seems to dry out as the flavor continues growing much less sweet and more bitter as the flavor advances. One of the reasons the flavor bitters and dries as it advances is that a grapefruit hop flavor begins developing more toward the middle of the taste. This grapefruit hop grows stronger till the end of the taste, mixing with a more grainy flavor as well as some notes of a grassy and herbal nature to leave a drier hopped citrus and grainy flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is light with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are very fitting for the tangerine and grainy flavors of the brew producing a refreshing beer overall.
Overall – This was an interesting one, as it was much more bitter and hoppy then I was originally expecting. I was expecting a wit like brew and got something of a wit-IPA blend. While it was not what I was expecting, it was rather tasty and is well worth a try if you get the chance.

Hint of orange in the first sip, but after that, it is a boring and dry beer. Not one I’d try again.

On tap at Many Glacier Lodge, MT. My fave on tap at this establishment of the three tasted there. Pours out a medium amber, with a soapy white head that vanished quickly. A lively carbonation lifted a lemony-orange aroma from the glass, and then followed through with a dry finish, softly bitter, and a little salty.
Would definitely have this again if given an opportunity to try it. I think that the glassware hadn’t really been treated right, so will try to find this on tap again and revisit this rating.

Pale hazed orange pour wit creamy white head and lace. Aroma is spicy floral and citrus with a nice malt kicker. Flavor is semi sweet malt and a nice floral bitter finish. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy still a nice beer.
