3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a fairly clear amber color with a finger of white head.
S: Lots of citrus aroma, which was to be expected considering this was brewed with orange peel. There is a bit of sweet tropical fruit and caramel malts.
T: The flavor is surprisingly bland. Definitely some bitterness with most of it coming from the orange peel. Not much hop bitterness or flavor. Some toasted malts and a bit of sweet bread.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Probably the first beer from Tyranena I’ve had that I didn’t like.

A golden IPA with a thin resilient lacing white head. A light c-hops aroma, restrained like it was hidden in the malts. In mouth, a light IPA with light and pleasant hops dancing in your mouth, a bit anemic. Good malt base. Medium bodied. On tap at Jerry’s, Chicago, May 16 2009.
