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

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.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Great balance of hop and a hint of citrus. This beer goes really well with a sweet Asian dish.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Pours with a clear, brassy looking, orange-amber body. A frothy, cream colored head shows good retention and leaves thick rings of ribbony lacing on the glass. The aroma is beautiful. Perfumy orange blossoms and bitter rinds smell as fresh as they come, with some grapefruit and lemon sneaking in there as well. The biscuity, toasted malt background is perfectly subtle, allowing the bouquet of citrus to proudly do what it is supposed to. The flavor is again very hoppy and citrus dominant, with the orange peel exerting its signature oily bitterness, reminiscent of that first bite into the peel of a freshly picked Florida Naval. Biscuity malts provide nice balance without getting overly sweet. Orangey bitterness lingers well after the swallow. The substantial body is smooth and slick, going down very easy and sitting well, hinting at sessionability. Everyone who grew up in Florida before the early 1990’s, when citrus trees were prominent, even in residential areas, needs to try this beer. It will certainly bring you back, as it did me. Fantastic beer.

drpimento (2226) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Poured with a small-bubble tan head and some lace. Nice coppery amber color. Malty, orangey, citrusy, hoppy nose. Flavor is more intensely the same but also with a real nice dry roastiness that perfectly compliments the other qualities. Really very good beer! Lots of flavor. Would be a session beer for those in the mood for it. Good finish. Having this on draft at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis. USA. They just put it on today.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from tytoanderso. Pours hazed orange with a billowing khaki head. Beautiful. The aroma is filled with fruity citrus. The flavor is a bit more balanced but with a great pithy bitter finish. Medium body with some light oil and prickly carbonation. This is a really well made beer, and one of my faves from these guys.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Slight citrus in the nose. No off flavors. Light golden in color with little head. Fresh and lively citrus flavor, very fruity and tangy. Very refreshing. Bitter aftertaste. A winner.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle shared by JW77 at Diegos. Orange amber pour. Light head. Aroma is piney, citrus, orange peel, honey and spice. Flavor is quite hoppy, tons of resinous pucker factor here! The orange is noticeable at the end and adds quite an interesting twist. Thanks JW.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft at the OF. Brown-orange color, looks filtered. Big foamy head. Nice bitter hop aroma. Intense orange/grapefruit bitterness, very nice. The orange peel really helps throw this beer over the top. Solid bitter aftertaste. Some Hopslam-esque intenseness. I love this beer.

Super citrus hops and fruity aroma. Small malt backbone. Palate lighter than expected, but a damn good beer. Thanks to hopmofo for sharing at dld.

Clear copper with orange hues, and a small white head and spotty lacing.. Citrus and floral hops, orange rind, and caramel make up the aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same, with a lot of bitterness from both the hops and the orange peel. I can see how the citric and bitter properties of the orange peel would seem logical in an ipa. A lot on the bitter end of the spectrum, this doesn’t boast much balance, not that I mind. Full bodied for an ipa, with soft carbonaion.
