swampwater (39) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2015
Aroma: Toffee, orange peel, and a hint of caramel.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber colour, with a lingering white head.
Taste: Caramel, orange, and a slight hoppy bite.
Palate: Quite sweet throughout, with a bitter aftertaste. Light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Quite unusual... in a good way. A nice, sweetish beer, with enough of a hop kick at the end to remind you it’s an IPA.

Bottle from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Orange, caramel aroma. Tastes similar, orange, caramel, sweet yet bitter. Tasted slightly unbalanced at first but once into it quite liked this.

It’s a strange beer all round. It pours bright orange with thin lacing, lots of sediment (or does this actually have fruit in it?). The aroma is not much hops, lots of citrus and a strong grain smell, has that funk hops smell of Belgian beers. The taste is very smooth, light, low bitterness, lots of toffee malt flavours but not syrupy at all, very refreshing. They say it’s an IPA but I’d call it a session Belgian ale... with fruit.

alberti92 (142) - - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours orange with a weak head with a light body with moderate carbonation. I don't think this beer has travelled to well. In the nose it's slightly buttery and sweet with a bit of orange. Taste is quite earthy and grainy and nothing to special.

VertBaconStrips (2150) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Oink. Man, this is crazy sweet and fruity. Orange, candied orange peel, more phrases with orange in it, cream soda, oversweet caramel. The taste is similar as it’s super fruity and has a bit of hop bite that fades. It’s minerally. Oranges and orange related terms, turtle elbows, flat malt base. Neat flavor that needs other stuff tossed into it to make this interesting. The orange isn’t quite the standard orange I find in most citrusy ipa’s and that in itself is cool. Straight forward simplistic brew that does nothing for this top hat wearing fancy man.
