On tap at the brewery taproom. 6.7%
Cloudy yellow body topped by a very nice head.
Exceptionally hoppy for style, with a very herbal-weedy profile that also has a bit of citrus and pineapple. The aroma is more fruity than the flavor.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy orange yellow with a small white head. The aroma is full of tangerines and hops. The taste is all citrus, a great flavor.

I love Orpheus IPAs. This is a good summer, refreshing and citrusy IPA and has a pretty good malt backbone. Just enough bitter and malt to make it a clean finish. There's something I can't point out that makes it just a different approach to the tropical IPA. Solid and will buy again.

Poured on draft.

A: Pale yellow with one finger white head. Fairly long retention and leaving some moderate lacing

S: Piney hops mixed with grapefruit and tangerine.

T: Follows the nose pretty close with some nice tropical fruits and earthy hop hits

M: Medium body with light carbonation. Finish is quite dry.

O: Very nice IPA. So far everything I've tried from Orpheus has been solid.

A thanks goes out to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerines, oranges. Taste is oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
