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 (196) - 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 (3367) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle shared at Chrisso’s 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.

Sjohnh (198) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Dark orange, with small white head. Gentle aroma, with the orange coming through more in the taste, alongside caramel malt, biscuit and mild spice. Refreshingly drinkable, with a bit of body and subtlety to it.

Senka (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2014
33cl bottle as pictured. Aroma of clementine peel oils and brown sugar. Pours orange clear with thick creamy head, that stays for a long time. Sweet, malty, fruity and mildly hoppy. Pleasant balance of malt/fruit/sugars and carbonation. Umami is a right thing to say here. Smooth, creamy, thick and rather oily. Pleasantly carbonated. For me, tasting typical Japan beers was absolutely not impressive, but this is totally different. Taste strongly reminds me of Kumquat. Super beer. Worth to try!

Koelschtrinker (10833) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Starker Antrunk von Hopfen und Orange. Nass grasig, minimal bitter, frisch, schwierig. Recht süß. 8/9/8/8/7/8

Artichoke (71) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Super foamy, but this may be caused by our lack of bottle opener. Fruity, slightly metallic. Not sohoppy.

suurjuust (1101) - ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2014
Orange beer, medium to small white head. Nose is orange juice, caramel, malt, sweet notes. Flavor is caramel, malt, straw, spice, hops. Mild bitterness in the finish, lingering oranges and hops.

thirstyrabbit (1109) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle. Orange body, tall to medium head. Weak aroma with sweet caramel syrup. Sweet caramelly taste with disturbing hints of Robitussin. Very low bitterness for an IPA, it’s more like an APA. Finish has more sweet cough syrup or rotting tangerines. Disappointing.
