3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler @ Cumming Growler. Medium brown color. Dry hopped aroma loads of citrus hops. Not what I was expecting at all. With the name, Chocolate Orange, honestly I was expecting a Sweet Stout. This is a full-blown Black IPA. What the slightest hint of chocolate malt, welcoming toasted grains. Nice hop character as well, full of citrus oils. After drinking the beer I understand the name. Honestly the only reason I purchased it, was because it sounded disgusting. I enjoyed this be a lot, very hoppy IPA. (3838)

HUGE head on it...can’t even pour! Smell is like a fruity hop smell...a little orangey but more chocolatey...good, not to bitter

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Asheville, NC - Brusiin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a nice sticky mocha colored head, Aroma reminds me of a chocolate and orange bakery concoction of some sort. Flavor is interesting with some artificial orange flavor, some chocolate mousse, some licorice accents. Some trailing bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a decent texture to it. Much better than expected.

Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with minimal off-white head. Aroma is more towards the orange and hop, taste follows, no real chocolate at all. Nice IPA, but was expecting something a bit more.

Tangy caramel....chocolate, spicy orange aroma.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown color with a foamy off-white head - a very unique look for an IPA. Aroma is faintly sweet, of chocolate, caramel, and citrus. The taste begins with a sweet orange in the head, with chocolate and caramel in the body, and some dry bitterness in the finish. Has a medium body feel and some carbonation. Very interesting. I enjoyed this.
