COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally made strong & highly hopped so it would keep on its long journey, from England to India during British rule. Ours is a wonderfully bitter beer with a spicy aroma, some fruity characteristics and a lingering hop finish. A great aperitif!

Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Hazy light amber with a thick head. Bright hop aroma with hints of wood, nice citrus. Smells awesome. Dry, pithy, herbal with just a hint of almost fruity sweetness. Really nice example.

Growler acquired in trade from kramer17801 (as part of the Mystery Beer Swap v2) thanks!. Poured a deeper and hazy golden amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and light caramel. Oddly enough, the aroma reminded me of a tuna sushi hand roll (not sure why that came to mind, hmmm, I’ll have to go get some sushi tomorrow - could be, I’m just hungry and love sushi). Tastes of pine, citrus (oranges), caramel, and had a grapefruit bitter finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Orange-grapefruit colour with lace sheets. Wonderful aroma of orange and grapefruit fresh juice. Well malted, understated carbonation. Taste is orange and grapefruit. A long finish. Soft mouthfeel, typically easy to drink Selin Grove.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Tasted at Jupiter beerfest. This was actually quite good! Orange pour wtih a nice head. Aroma is full of citrus hops. I get lots of different citrus, grapefruit, lemon and calamondin. Flavor has a great hop bite full of grapefruit peel and some nice malts to finish this one off...yum.

DocLock (11110) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours turbid orangy copper with 1-finger of lacy off-white head. Nose is very fruity, with tangerine, mango, caramel malt. Tastes caramel malty, smooth, complex, with mid-palate fruity notes of mango,pineapple, tangerine, and some berry notes. More fruity than piney or resiny, this one is very good.

jercraigs (10921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
2012-08-17. Orange body with a small beige head. Modest aroma, sort of hoppy, earthy caramel malt. 6+ Flavour is pale ale like, modest hops, modest bitterness with a kiss of smokey earthy character if you look hard for it (which I was since I was originally told it was a rauchbier! So perhaps discount that a bit). Average bodied palate. Decent, I am very curious to know if I would have scored it higher know what it was at the time! Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Growler shared at Campdown Brewdown. Clear orange pour with medium white foam. Herbal, squashy hop nose. Excellent, dank nose. Taste is thicker, oily, bitter, herbal. Very rich with no astringency or wooly, sawdust tannins. Nice.

[4684-20120817] Growler. Fresh light orange hops aroma. Clear, golden amber body with a quick creamy off-white head. Light candy corn and cotton candy orange hops flavour. Medium body. Delicious IPA -- mislabelled as the "Bullfrog Nacht Rauch", which it clearly wasn’t. (7/3/8/4/16) 3.8
