Citrusy in both the bitter rind qualities and the sweeter orange fruit aromas. Lusterous amber in color with a thumb thick white head that is mostly lasting. Sweet fore tastes a bit of orange/lemon spiked cake, slightly toasty with a firm malty feel. Hops are fairly low in bitterness and an excellent compliment to the fruity malt base. I put of trying this because I tend to dislike IPA’s (really hoppy ones anyway) but this is a tasty fine beer. FlacoAlto (4182) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Pours with a frothy tan colored head that is initially one-finger thick, but does not hang out for too long. The beer is a brilliantly clear, full copper color. The aroma is suitably hoppy with a sweet orange note being the most prominent. A dry biscuit like note is noticeable towards the end of the aroma, but you have to look for it. The citrusy hop notes in this are so clean, and remarkably similar to orange.Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2006
The beer is lightly sweet up front, with a solid citrusy orange note. The beer finishes with a light, though strange astringency, and a solid toasted malt note. Candied orange zest was definitely used in this beer, I just know it. The beer has a solid bitterness to it that starts up front and becomes more noticeable as it finally has a strangle hold on the long, lingeringly bitter finish. The hop character creates a bit of a tingling tongue sensation, much like carbonation does, and it is accompanied by an herbaceous hop character that is quite nice as well. This beer is fairly light and drinkable, of course I mean that it has a medium fullness to eat that is not so much that I couldn’t see drinking a couple pints of this quaffable IPA.
Pours copper, small white head. Aroma of hops a bit muted, but first thing you notice with some malt sweetness lingering. More malt than expected, hops subdued and contribute more to bitterness than aroma. Medium bodied, sweet middle with grapefruit rind finish. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2006
London Gathering Nov 05: Clear gold with a beige head. Nice hoppy smooth pale ale, with pine and citrus notes evident. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Poured clear orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma was well hopped with sweet orange and lemon notes. Had a good malt body with grassy hops being the main taste. The finish was sweet orange hops. Good balance with a great finish.
