3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good take on an IPA. Loved the zesty orange peel added in for flavor. It has lots of the right hop characteristics needed to fulfill what an IPA is supposed to be. Lots of floral and orange citrus in the bouquet. Pours a dark orange that has some beige fluffy head with some solid lacing. Medium mouth feel. What I most liked about this was the burst of orange zest on the tongue that’s balanced perfectly with the hop profile of the IPA. It’s a delicious combo that they’ve done right.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is citrusy hops and brown sugary malt. Bitter IPA. Orange zest is there but not pronounced. Tropical fruit on the finish. Not bad but certainly not exciting.

Beautiful amber-red color. Very, very hoppy, but after a few swigs not so harsh. The orange peel is a great complement to the hops. Body is very full but doesn’t feel heavy.

Taster on tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, Wisconsin. Clear orange amber color. Nice thicker creamy off-white head. Leaves nice thicker lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Good full creamy texture to it. Light dry finish. Nice citrusy aroma, light spice, some light piney earthy hop. Caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Good hoppy pale ale.

Draft. From notes. Loads of orange and grapefruit dominate. Long bitter finish. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper color with a thick, lasting head. Aroma is minimal with just hints of bread and citrus. Taste has more of a bitter start that I expected from the aroma. The malt and citrus bring some sweetness to balance the hops before a nice, bitter finish. Overall a pretty classic English / East coast IPA profile with a touch of citrus added just like the label says.
