Flying Dog brewed this for CBC in Washington DC this year. I had the opportunity to try it last night at the brewery and all I can say is, wow! I think they hit a home run with this beer. I know the keg kicked pretty soon after I got my tasting glass filled, had there been more I would have drank this all evening.
It pours a brilliant bright orange with an active 1 finger bright-white head. The aroma coming out of the glass is tons of sweet citrus and light pine notes. Right up front I got a nice muted sweet citrus like when you eat a ripe tangerine, the hops are present but not overpowering the orange. The beer finished dry and crisp with no malty sweetness.
It was medium bodied with nice carbonation. This beer should be brewed again and enjoyed fresh! Great job to the peeps over at Flying Dog!

A - pretty standard IPA appearance, though this one may be on the oranger side, appropriately. Nice creamy head and lacing.
S - The nose bursts with bright, fresh orange/tangerine/peach juiciness as soon as it hits the glass. The smell seems to mellow pretty substantially after that though.
T - A quick pop of piney hops and then a prickly orange/tangerine streak running through it, supported by light caramel. There's a constant interplay between pine and citrus juice that keeps things interesting. There are also some pink fruits on the finish, like guava and passion fruit.
M - mouthfeel is pretty standard-ish and pleasant. Both slick and creamy at times.
Overall, this beer is a really solid, refreshing summer IPA that still retains its punch.
