Brewed by:

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced 'em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

12 oz. Bottle
ABV: 7.5%

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice hazy golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (blood orange, tangerine, mango), slight pine. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (blood orange, tangeirne, mango), nice little sweetness, slight pine. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, surprised me.

12-oz. bottle poured into a 16-oz. mug. A strong pour was needed to get a 1/2 finger sized white head that quickly shrinks to a ring with spotty lacing.
Golden yellow with little floaties and slight haze, looks yellow in front of light.
Orange rind, spicy hops and faint alcohol for the smell.
Taste follows with added floral hops and lime, faint malt and citrus juice in the middle with a spicy hop semi-dry finish. Not to sweet or bitter. A spicy aftertaste lingers.
Light body with medium-low carbonation, even taste profile.
A good beer to drink slow and not to cold so the spiciness can be appreciated.

12 oz bottle. Feels strange to not be popping open a 20oz. Can.

Smells like an orange creamsickle with a hit mMrs.Dash and green leafy veggies.

Looks bright gold with orange highlights. A tall and fluffy white foam topping is clumpy and bubbly, good coverage with sticky lace.

A spicy orange flavor, orange juice with a leafy and herbal side. Very light and crisp golden malt balance is pretty fine. Lightly sweet honey malt and fruitiness from the hops and citrus adjuncts gives it some decent depth.

A sharp and crispy, even grainy bite soon changes its texture to a medium bodied, slicker malt style finish. A dramatic change in feel, fromlight and crisp to mostly slick...not really smooth, but cloying maltiness.

Not a big fan of the fruit adjuncts. I feel like the natural charecter of the hops can provide enough fruity tones, with oerhaps some help from certain yeast strains that can be amazingly fruity, without adding actual fruit. With that being stated, this is not at all a bad fruity APA.

Nice white head on light amber liquid. A healthy amount of carbonation. Wonderful smell, like citrus in a drenching rainstorm. Lemon-orange flavor with very little bitterness.
