Best by February 2015.

A- 12oz bottle poured to a goblet with a copper-orange body. An off-white cap forms with a thick creamy consistency up to about one finger. Pretty good retention as a frothy island and medium ring deposit spotty lace with some webs.

S- Hops forward but medium caramelized malts and sweetness poke through. Bitter orange peel hops are the emphasis with earthy and herbal hints as well. Something comes of as very slightly metallic.

T- The theme of bitter orange zest citrus hops continues on here as well as the backing of them by medium Crystal grains that lend a light sweetness. Grapefruit pith, floral, pine resin with the yeast bringing light fruit notes.

MF- Medium thickness with a puffy, frothy texture with any agitation of the beer. Carbonation at a moderate level and the beer ends with a high bitterness relative to the body and flavor.

IPAs with caramel malt character can be good but this one is only decent. The heavily bitter citrus pith hops clash a bit with the sweetness and flavor of the grains. Just doesn't come off all that clean and seems a bit abrasive.

Dislike the new system, btw. Not that anyone cares.

A - Murky orange, small near white head, some cling.

S - Malt, orange essence.

T - Yum. Big malt, huddled in by appropriate hops. Feels bigger than it is.

M - Medium body, great carb and balance.

D - Very drinkable.
