Pours copper/orange. with very little head. Smells citrusy very much how an IPA should smell.The flavor is very nice a crisp and citrusy IPA with a nice mellow orange peel undertone.

Single from Three Cellars. Very interesting. I am not sure what citrus noise and flavor came fro the hop or from the orange peel. I did get the bitterness I find in the orange peel. But it is a very satisfying IPA. And the orange sets it apart from others.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent deep glowing bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of fresh resiny citrusy hops and some orange peel with a decent amount of sweet caramel and honey character. Body starts with good fullness and sweet caramel maltiness balanced with a crisp, citrusy orange hoppy character before a drier bittersweet finish. A pretty good, very fresh tasting IPA.

Amber orange color with a modest beige head. Very citrus aroma with fleshy rudy red grapefruit and orange zest. Plenty of malt as well, with some dough and cookie scents. Light sweet citric start. LIght dry malt middle and again some citrus. Quite bitter in the finish and linger. Refreshing in a grapefruit juice kind of way. I like it even though I think it could use a more solid malt base. Interesting stuff. As it warms some apricot flavors creep in and seem to give this more depth. I’m certainly going to need to try a few more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange with a large semi dissipating off white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, bread and light sweet malt. Taste of citrus hops, resin, orange and mild pine and grapefruit. Smooth and balanced medium bodied beer with a medium bitter and dry finish. While I liked Hop Whore a shade better, this is still a quality brewers gone wild edition.

Over the top citrusy orange peel aroma,if you like the citrus aspect of your hops ,this is killer,my jowls are watering ,just anticipating the tartness and bitternessthat my plalate will have to deal with, a gorgeous clear amber orange color,one of the prettiest beers I’ve ever had the pleasure to gaze at, taste is surprising, now you can see how much a difference the orange peel made. There is great citrus flavor, wonderful bitterness,but your left with a definite fruity aspect as opposed to the hop and barley finish,say of a Bitter Woman,the finish has a short fruity bitter fade,as opposed to the hoppy longer fade of my favorite brew. An excellent idea, that worked out wonderfully,very satisfying brew,thats new different. Atta boy Rob

Copper color. My first impression of the smell was the smell of vodka and orange juice (Screwdriver). Smell of hops, grapefruit, cotton candy, malt, flowers, orange peal, minor caramel and pine. Taste of bitter hops, malt, grapefruit, pine, blood orange, orange peal, minor alcohol, pepper and more of the Simcoe hop flavor. I think its simco. Very fresh and an outstanding IPA. I wonder what would happen if they would mix this and Bitter Woman together????
