Scipio (1242) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours a clear orange with a thinner white head that lingers for a bit. The aroma has a healthy mix of orange and caramel, with a significant presence of herbal hops. Some lesser pine and peach are found as well. The taste has an easy bitterness to it. Dry and a little sweet, but not too much. I find a lot of parallels to the nose. There is strong orange with a base of caramel and resin. Still pretty herbal, although now I detect a slight grassiness as well. Mild peach. Sweet orange aftertaste is a tad weak though long lasting. Meidum in body, with thicker, sticky texture, and average in carbonation. A solid IPA overall. Lobster15 (97) - - MAY 29, 2017
Bottle at easy beer. Amber color. Caramel notes. Tangerine finish. Nice IPA, not outstanding though. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sly burnt orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Some sly messy lace. Khosrove (93) - LATVIA - MAY 12, 2017
The aroma had some sweet Mandarin oranges, sweet freshly cut grass, some lemon pulp, subtle herbal sweetness, a touch of floral and a little bit of toast at the end.
The flavor was sweet all of the way through. Some light bitterness did try and make an effort to come forward but didn’t seem to show enough pizazz. Aftertaste was the Mandarin oranges, sweet. Finish was semi-sticky and sweet.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Stickiness was acceptable and not cloying.
Overall, wishing there would have been a little more pizazz from the bitter components of the hops. I didn’t mind this one and am wishing I could have found a date on the bottle. Numbers are gentle in this review due to unknown age of this beer.
Very fruity and refreshing. Not too bitter, nice citrusy hops. A little sour. lidor1995 (145) - ISRAEL - APR 21, 2017
Pours from the bottle clear orange with low head and strong carbonation, aroma of candy and orange, strong sour body
jjsint (3533) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Draft at Beerfox, Rīga. Light orange/brown, a bit of visible carbonation and head. Citrus peel with some medicinal notes (a bit of horehound). Taste is sweet and juicy, but the hops are muted so it’s far from the American ’hop bomb’ IPA. Short finish. Sweetness lingers, with candied orange peel in the aftertaste. Carbonation is heavy on the palate. A bit too muted for me, but it’s a decent IPA. Jorn69 (3373) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2017
