Pours a beautiful orange-amber hue with a white foamy head and some sparkling carbonation. Some hints of citrus and pine in the aroma. Some hints of citrus in the taste; however I remember that previous years had more orange in the flavor profile, this is 2012 and the orange is not as prevalent to the beer’s detriment, after all this is the "Scurvy" IPA. Still an enjoyable IPA.
Aroma: citrus, pine, resin
Appearance: orange, clear, sparkling, white foam
Taste: light sweetness, medium bitterness
Palate: medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Chicago bottle from Binny’s downtown. Really pretty nice IPA. You can really pick up the citrus in the aroma. The flavor starts out slightly sweet but finishes with a little flat bitterness. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Poured a deep copper with a small off-white head. Smells of caramel, citrus, tropical fruit, and cereal. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, caramel, and a lightly bitter orange peel finish. The hops are very muted in both the smell and taste, but still somewhat well-balanced. Not picking up much orange in either the taste or aroma either. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA, but nothing really too special or unique about this brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent IPA, but surprisingly on the boring side. The orange peel gives a fruity essence to the aroma and is apparent on the fade, but otherwise this brew is nothing too astounding. Rather european on the nose, yet the taste is all American-style hopping, with a moderately citric center and mild sweetness. Harsh in the texture, though, too spiky and carbonated for its own good. Eh.
