This was a Mystery Beer challenge growler fill from the Northbridge Pig. Took a lot of notes, but didn't guess this brew -
A: Poured into a snifter - slightly hazy copper-orange... tea-like; thin, creamy white head; not much retention or lace... kinda fizzy.
S: Toasted malt; orange peel / light citrus; sorghum; bready.
T: Follows nose; bread crust malt; orange peel / rind; spicy hops on end.
M: Medium body; high carbonation; has an incomplete feel; zingy.
O: Fairly drinkable, although not the tastiest brew. Upon finding out it was an IPA, I was surprised... I was leaning towards a pale ale (and something with a lower abv).

Pours deep clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma is breathtaking and one of the best I have smelled on a pale. Deep pine hops, sweet grapefruit, floral, and even a bit of candy caramel smell. Flavor is very sweet and candy like. Not as much bitterness as i was hoping for. No bottle date, so maybe I got it late in the year? Still has the hop flavor though. Candy sweet grapefruit with only a hint of pine. Floral flavor. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel for a 6.6% here. Pretty flat. Good beer, but can't say I wasn't hoping for more bitterness and refreshment. The aroma is there, most of the flavors are there, but something seems slightly off. It is so close to being right. Just falls short of my benchmarks in the fresh/wet syle (Founders Harvest & GD Fresh Hop). Bonus points for the name of this one though.

Found some notes from 11/2012...
@ Tasty Beverage
Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.
Serving type: on-tap
