Scurvy India Pale Ale (IPA) India Pale Ale Brewed With Orange Peel. An ample ale, exploding with luscious, fruity hops and citrusy blast of orange zest. Ready to walk the plank, Matey

Upon opening the bottle I get a strong whiff of pine and my immediate reaction is uh-oh I dont know how this is going to work with the orange. Does it work? Not really, for one the orange gets totally lost in the pine (and isnt that the whole idea behind this beer, orange peel), second what orange I can gather seems to come more from the pith than the peel in a sour bitterness. Cooking 101 is to enhance flavors so that the sum is greater than the individual. This beer uses ingredients that combat each other in a destructive way. Sorry I bought the 4-pack now.

Beautiful amber color with an off-white head that has excellent lacing and retention. Smells of grapefruit, pine sap, oranges, and some other citrus. Taste is of pine sap, oranges, grapefruit, peaches, and some caramel for balance, even though hops are still dominant. Medium body with a little less than medium carbonation. I hope they brew this one again. So tasty and drinkable.

Pours a crisp amber color with a medium foamy head that fades quickly and leaves streams of lacing. Aroma is piney hops, nutty malts, and oranges. Taste is about the same but is foremost an IPA - the orange peel taste isn’t overpowering, which is a good thing, but I thought it would be more apparent. It seems like it mostly just adds some citrus brightness to the palate.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Pours a clear copper with fair cream-tinted head that dissipates to a light lacing. Aroma is hops, pine and orange. Flavor is tangy with the mix of pine hops and orange/citrus notes. Body is light to medium with medium carbonation. A good brew that is a good match for summer. The play of hops and citrus are refreshing and well done.

Blue Nile draft. Deep orange color, medium carbonation. Flavor is strong bittering/citrus hops with a sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied, fizzy on the palate. Finishes dry. Looking forward to this in bottles.

Draft at Blue Nile. Pours a slightly cloudy orange-brown body with off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange peel, and caramel malts. Flavor is more of the same. Not a whole lot of hop bitterness in this one, but enjoyable to drink.

[Tap] at Pigfoot’s 40th birthday party at the Blue Nile. Pours copper gold with a medium off white tan head. Great aroma of citric hops. Grapefruit, lemon and orange zest, and a little bit of pine come through as well as a bit of caramelly malt. Flavor is hop forward, with a decent sweet malt balance. Not terribly bitter, but a great beer for hopheads.

Haha, Iowaherkeye is blind since the date is right on the neck of the bottle, 6/11/08. Thanks for this one joey via badbeer. Pours a dark orage with a medium white aroma. Aroma is floral and citrus hop with a bit of caramel malt. flavor has up front floral and citrus hops, a bit of bitter orange rind and spice. Has a decent caramel background. Finishes bitter with a nice hop zing to it. Very nicely done, and just a bit different than your normal IPA to set it apart.

12oz bottle, no date--though it’s been bottled within the last few weeks. Crystal clear amber orange with a one finger creamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma is full of juicy citrus and mango hops, bitter orange rind, and a solid caramel backbone. Flavor still has all of the juicy hops with plenty of the caramel malts from keeping this a one-dimensional hop bomb, and bringing us into the second (not third, though)! Biitterness peaks around a 6-7 in the semi-dry finish. Moderate carbonation with a medium body. With the orange added to this, I figured it would be comparable to the Buckeye 76 IPA, but it’s missing the orange sweetness the Buckeye had. Pretty solid IPA--I’m sure the West Coasters will crap all over it and call it vegetal.

Bottle pours orange amber with a decent head and residual lace. The aroma is sweet caramel and citrus hops, with some orange peel. The flavor is restrained to sweet malt, citrus hops, and what can only be described as the orange peal bitterness. It clearly has the peal flavor showing. The palate is rich and lively. This works for me really well. Appealing beer.
