Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Belgian-style Extra Pale Ale is brewed with heaps of sweet Mandarin oranges from Blossom Bluff Farms and California two-row barley. We dry-hop with generous doses of aromatic Cascade and Columbus hops and finish the beer with a hint of lightly toasted American oak. Enjoyed best with your favorite seasonal fare.

12oz bottle poured slowly into a tulip. And I mean really slowly. It was a bit of a gusher -- got beer all over my counter right after opening, even though it's been at rest in the fridge for a week or so. If there's a bottle code or anything, I don't see it.

Pours on the orange side of amber, cloudy, with a monstrous head. Smell is citrus, yeast. Dampness.

Taste is mild, orange peel bitter, soapy water, some kind of greenery.

Mouthfeel is medium and slick. Overall...it's fine.
