On-tap at Big Bear Mountain Brewery

A: The pour is a golden amber color with a small white head and some spots of lacing.

S: A pretty decent hop aroma to this beer, which is mostly oranges (seems like a popular theme at this brewery). There are some hints of pine, but otherwise it's sweet and bready malt.

T: The flavor is quite bitter, much moreso than I would have expected from the nose. Most of the hop flavor is in the form of bitter orange and grapefruit peels.

M: The body is on the light side of medium with a low carbonation.

D: This is one of the better beers from these guys, but that's not really saying too much.

@Bigbear Brewing

App- Much like the color of a wood pub table but a tad lighter. A decent head with some scattered cling. A bit dense in color with orange and yellow highlights.

Smell- Decent hop bitter with a bit of malts layering their way through. Wasnt terribly citrusy but had a tinge. Slightly lacking in aromatics

Taste- Safe to say its run of the mill. Brewed down a bit to make more accessible. Had a bit bitter flavor with more malts vs hops to it. Needs more pop!

Mouth- A small medium body with a low medium carbonation. A bit of resdiual malts. No citrus or hops carry over.

Drink- Just okay. Needed less body and more layers and pop.

Pours a clear light copper color with a tiny 1/2 inch head that fades to a slight film. Frothy, spotting lacing on the drink down. Smells of bubblegum and perfume. Taste is of watery perfume. Somewhat flat and watery in the mouth. Horrible drinkability. Not even close to being 1) IPA 2) beer.
