355ml bottle poured into a tulip glass

Look: Spray tan orange - I mean very, very orange. Fairly fizzy right out of the gate, with a couple of fingers of off-white head that drop down to a foam cap eventually. Good bit of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Well, it's definitely got the hop smells - a big, heapin' pile of orange and lemon with a good bit of pine resin on top. If I was feeling uncharitible Id' say it had a bit of a disinfectant vibe to it, but I'm not so I won't. Has a very 'fresh' floral/resinous smell. I like.

Taste: Good, solid hop flavours with a hint of citrus and resin in the finish. No malt or yeast notes to speak of.

Feel: Nicely astringent - plenty of hops up front with a long, dry finish. Not excessively bitter - nicely balanced.

Overall: OK, so the name is a bit misleading but the fact remains that in this reviewer's opinion this isn't half bad as pale ales go. Not as hoppy as a typical IPA, this has more in common with the British pale ales that, being a Brit, I'm more familiar with. Definitely an interesting take on the style. Worth a punt.

Pretty desperate times as the Dulles Airport. Beer hard to find. Found this on tap and thought I'd give it a try. The head is thin....and now it's gone. Very cloudy orange color. The grapefruit taste does pop. Not overly hoppy - more malty and is a true ale. Not for the hopheads definitely. An ok beer.
