Orange, light head, hints of brown. Sugared pink grapefruit. Very cute and delicate. VEry well rounded and slightly savoury. Pink Grapefruit and light mandarin citrus spritz. Lovely sweet and light finish. Nice little % kick. Dry to sweet progression. Light tingle. Lovely hops repeat on you. Light and delicate little number.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of light resin, spice, some dry malt. Tastes chewy with lots of sweet citrussy elements and a crisp finish.

On tap at the brewpub. A brewery that specializes in IPA’s, and this is the only one on tap for my first visit. Disappointing! Aroma and flavor decent, oranges and pine in varying ratios. However, way too much alcohol is present, particularly exhibited in a weird (bad weird) alcohol-infused-oranges finish. Not a favorite.

Cloudy brown/copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, light berry. Taste is medium sweet, pine, grapefruit, caramel, apricot. Medium body, some resin, low carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy light brown with no real head. Aroma of piney and citrusy hops. Flavor is dominated by orange and grapefruit and leaves a bitter finish. The beer is a little too heavy/syrupy and overbearing for an IPA. It tastes good but is not very drinkable.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - SEP 29, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy copper with a white head. Big citrusy grapefruit nose. Interesting flavors - bitter grapefruit coupled with nutty malt. Odd, but it works. Excellent lace.
