COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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.

Pretty, clear pour from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Great head, and an enticingly hoppy, slightly evergreen aroma. Plenty of hops, but not overpowering, and a strong, mildly bitter citrus finish (presumably from the orange peel). That nice crisp finish lingers in the mouth for a while and acts as a great thirst quencher - while also making me want more. Iím really liking this beer.

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????

Pours a beautiful amber/copper color with nice white head.Wonderful aromas of Citrus, orange peel, pine, and caramel malts. and hops. I thought that the orange peel may make it too citrusy,but to the contrary!It has a perfectly balanced orange flavor that beautifully blends in with the piney hop flavor!Great caramel malt backing with a great bitter hop finish! Great job Rob!

Bottle. Incredible aroma. This is what all IPA’s should aspire to in terms of aroma. Rich, sweet, syrup and tangerine. Luscious hop nose. Slightly hazy, reddish amber body with plentiful visible carbonation. Yellowish tan, milky smooth, tight bubble head that is reminiscent of a cask head. Wonderful sheet lacing. Tastes nearly identical to the aroma. Smooth, creamy, hoppy and almost perfectly balanced. Could use maybe a touch more sweetness and strength, but I’m not complaining. This is a top notch IPA that got perfect scores in 3 of 5 categories. I hope they bring this back. This is a sessionable, go to IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 There is a bit of suspended disbelief in my rating and review. I donít like to see stuff added to beer, but if it works, Iím not going to complain. The orange peel works, maybe even really works. This is one of those beers that really benefits from palate wrecking. The second half really starts to come into its own. I might like a second or third to get the full effect. Hop bitterness works like a Negroni in setting the stage. The orange becomes complex and balanced. Malt plays a significant supporting role.

Every IPA talks about there citrus smell and flavor, this one has both big time. This is a nice IPA, one of my favorites!

Bottle, poured into a mug. The ale is clear, light copper, good white head. The hop aroma is strong, citrusy, floral. Lots of hop flavor, high bitterness, citrus, floral, resins, low clean malt flavor. Bitterness lasts a long time. Smooth medium bodied. Wow! I could not discern an orange flavor, but the citrus was there, mixed well with the hops.

Ton of oarnge peel zest which makes this a bit acidic but unique. Greal floral, oragne aroma. Nice priced.Enjoyed it most at cellar temperature. Did not do as well out of fridge.

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 Iíve 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
