Light haze on this rich gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Dry pale malts, whisper of lactose. A nice candy tangerine - orange and then a whisper of piney hops. Light semi dry finish brings a touch of raw malts. Can see why this is classified as a fruit beer, needs to be a lot hoppier. Drinkable though.

Bottle as a gift. Pours slight hazy orange with small nice white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, some orange,grassy. Taste is sweet and bitter, fruity, orange. Medium carbonation. Medium body.I think that would be good beer with some sweet chicken dish.

Butters (3863) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Hazy dull amber with decent near white head. Definitely fruity. Like fake orange candy syrup. Not like a beer. Sweet up front and bitter orange peel on the finish. Not hoppy at all. Massive carbonation. Seems a little bretty actually. Almost sour/tart.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04/2015
Aroma is rather sweet and heavy with caramel, some resiny hops and orange. Also some citrus. Flavour has grapefruit, fruity hops, resiny tones and caramel. Unusual IPA, but I seem to enjoy this. Heavy but still refreshing and not overwhelmingly sweet.

Kauge (366) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (Ä 3,70). BB 04.2015. Pours hazy light orange with an off-white head. Nose is caramel candy and oranges, low grassy-spicy bitterness, gets grainier as it warms. Taste is pretty much the same with malts more prominent than hops, itís got quite nice orange juice freshness, though without the sourness and very weak bitterness. Caramel present too. Both body and carbonation are maybe slightly more than medium, finish disappointingly weak. Overall itís okay with great drinkability, Iíve quite liked it repeatedly as the first drink of the night despite itís simplicity and more of an APA character.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Tap at SBWF2014. Amber color, good off-white head. Aroma has rice grainy notes and light fruits. Medium-bodied. Flavor is sweetish, simple fruityness. Very uninspiring ipa

tania_nexust (227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Stirchley Wines. Pours a rich orange colour. Nicely hoppy aroma. Taste could be hoppier for an IPA but there are pleasant hints of orange in there.

mR_fr0g (4000) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle shared at Chrissoís May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Translucent orange / golden coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is corn, pretty stale, some spicy hop and hint of mint. Flavour is composed of sweet corn and stale malts, some grassy hop, medium hop bitterness. Palate is fairly sweet, with moderate carbonation. Lingering spice. Showing some signs of age / travel.
