2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Dry and bitter, a bit astringent and watery, not as carbonated as I?d like. Mild sweetness. A bit disappointing for a Surly.

Iíd probably call this an APA rather than a bitter but I donít feel like arguing so whatever. This is a slightly cloudy orange beer w/ a head of white, fine bubbles. It smells really nice and fruity, definite peach and tangerine notes. It is a touch on the bland side when you taste it though, no real malt character comes through and itís just a firm bit of bitterness in the finish. I think this might work OK as a light, refreshing beer but the texture is a bit full bodied for that. It drinks pretty easily w/ its mild carbonation but feels a bit too oily on the tongue for something that doesnít have much depth of flavor. I donít mind this stuff but I donít see myself buying it again.

A crisp hoppy and lightly sweet beer. Light citrus aroma and taste (grapefruit, apricot, etc) finishes bitter, clean, and light. Refreshing and drinkable. Could be confused with a session ipa but is slightly different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

good stuff, especially at only 4%?! started out boring, just because iíve been drinking lots of BIG beers lately, and big this is not. but itís subtle floral aroma mixes well with the bittering hops and sweet fruity malt. well balanced too. i could have lots of these. one of my new favorite bitters"

Draft at the brewery! This has a pretty standard visual for a Bitter, amber and a bit of thin head. In a blind taste, Iíd call this a even-keeled American pale ale. Thereís a firm malty backbone, followed by a little fruit/woody twist. (#5650, 8/28/2014)

16 oz can purchased from Binnyís. Pours a clear dark amber orange with many particulates floating in the glass creating a cloudy appearance. The thick white head settled down to a thin edge head and a tiny wisp atop the meniscus. Aroma is mild with dry hopped complexity - light orange citrus predominantly. Flavor is same with mild hops and light citrus. Light to medium bodied, bright carbonation and lingering ale yeast finish.

Draft at Bricks. Pours somewhat cloudy orange-amber with no head or lacing. Very mild hops in the nose. Grassy bitterness in the taste. Buttery mouthfeel. Lots of flavor for 4.1%.

Very nice floral hop aroma to start, pours a clear light orangish-amber with a thin white head. Fruity sweetness starts off the beer, changing to a lingering bitter finish. Very light bodied and easy drinking. A solid example of the style.
