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!

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, copper color, speckled with yellow and orange highlights and a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very hoppy up front, followed by some wheat and a touch of citrus, but a lot less than I was expecting from the name of the beer. The predominate aroma, overpowering really, is floral, piney, hops.

Taste: Disappointing actually. There’s hardly any malt flavor at all, nor is there any blood orange citrus flavor. All I get is hops, bitter, piney, hops, which is a shame. No balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty smooth as there is very little carbonation. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: I’m very disappointed in this beer. I was really looking forward to tasting some citrus flavors from the blood orange and possibly some spice, but unfortunately, all I get/taste is hops. Hop heads should really like this beer, but alas, I do not. After looking this beer up on Beer Advocate I see that it is an IPA, but makes sense for all the hops that the beer has. Had I known it was an IPA, meaning had that been on the label, I would not have gotten it.
