12 ounce bottle into a pint glass
A - Another interesting offering from Tyranena in the long line of BGW series, let's hope it stays consistent. A steady pour delivers a hazy, golden brown body that appears to have some sediment floating around in it. Strands of carbonation race up to the head that is white, somewhat bubbly and about a finger thick before fading to a lace after a few minutes.
S - A rather unique smell with the orange peel addition, and one that I like quite a bit. As expected plenty of hops smack your nose, but it's the fruity citrus zest from the orange peel is what makes this nose stand out among other IPA's I have had.
T - Caramel malts are present in this one and that is not something I noticed in the smell of this beer. Dry hops, which I assume are Amarillo are present and play nicely with the orange peel aspect of this beer. Slight booziness is noticeable, but nothing too overbearing. The caramel malts seem to edge that pretty well, but it is there.
M - Medium bodied beer with a good amount of carbonation. Entering the mouth there is plenty of hops along with the orange citrus zest that plays well with the hops. Carbonation arrives, cleansing the palate and bringing on the caramel malts which cover the booziness of this beer somewhat. Finish is slightly bitter and dry.
D - I like the idea of integrating an orange peel into an IPA, but this beer could use some work. Most notably is the backside and finish of the beer. Maybe more cellar time would help calm the booziness down and remove some bitterness. Overall, though this is a pretty solid offering from Tyranena.
