Deep orange, medium head - not much aroma. Easy drinking, get the orange in the aftertaste - just a average ipa IMO.

Bottled 5/1/12. Old bottle. Poured 8/26/13. Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel, pine, grass, fruity. Maltier than it probably should be, but that’s the age on it. Taste is dry, citrus, spicy, bread, orange, peel (really comes through), caramel; finish is pretty subtle, orange peel. Some really nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Mouth feel is wet, slick. At over 15 months old, a good amount of the hops has fallen off. That being said, it’s tasty and even refreshing. Still highly drinkable. Would love to try a fresh one.

Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a clear gold with an inch of soft, frothy white head. I had no idea this was brewed with orange peel and my first note is that there’s an underlying orange citrus character that becomes more pronounced as it warms. They get that right for sure. Some perfume notes on the nose. Light-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel that has soft carbonation and some bitterness on the finish. Nice, refreshing IPA.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Nearly clear copper to hazelnut pour with a 1 finger, off white head. Aroma is sweet fruity and floral citrus, light pine, light grapefruit, toast, caramel, toffee, grass and biscuit. Flavor is deep caramel, some toffee and biscuit up front giving way to hay, planty hops, lots of sweet and bitter citrus, grass, pine, toast and fruity yeast. Medium body, off dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Good stuff, nice example of a complex, but citrus and caramel forward IPA.

Draft. The pour is a faint orange. The aroma is mostly mild hops. The taste I don't much orange from until the very end. A little too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is oranges, grapefruit, and malt. Not to complex, but very drinkable.

Pours a pale, clear orange with a finger of lingering white head. Smell is mandarin oranges, bready malt, and citrusy hops. Tastes like somebody put a clementine orange into my beer, grassy hops, decent pale malt backbone. Not particularly complex but fairly refreshing.

I catch mostly orange peel in the aroma, though there are some hops just behind that. The head is off white and sticks to the glass for quite awhile. The body is a pleasant golden amber. The taste surprised me as I expected to encounter more of that orange flavor. It did not happen, but something else did. The orange peel balances the bitterness in the hops, leaving a clean taste, though somewhat richer than the brew’s appearance. Hop heads will like this very much, though the ones that like a strong bitterness in the hops will be disappointed. The palate is treated to a thick oily quality, leaving an aftertaste of orange peel that has the potential to become annoying in a session. Overall, it is well done and fans of IPA’s should give it a try.

PhillyCraft (3333) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle with Keith. Dated April, so 3 months old...pours copper with small clearish white head, not much lace. Notes of old hops, copper, vanilla, cheese, rye and lots of sweet malt. This might have been good a couple months ago...might have.

Jethro6191 (449) - Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours orange with a thin off-white head. Citrusy aroma with orange and grapefruit notes. Hoppy flavor with some dankness. The initial flavor is oranges then the grapefruit comes in at the finish. Crisp clean mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation. The finish is fairly dry with just a slight residual hoppiness lingering on the back of the tongue.
