look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

A medium bodied, firmly hopped American IPA fermented with Belgian Witbier yeast and spiced with orange peel.


a: This was a cloudy, murky golden color. It was served to me with a medium sized, sticky head.

s: Lots of citrus peel, with hints of earthy yeast and an odd hop note.

t: Just o.k., this doesn't come together very well. Too much orange peel and a strange sweetness that seemed out of place. Not a whole lot of hop character.

m: Nice and chewy.

o: This just didn't work for me.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. This was on tap at the brewpub. The appearance was a slight hazy burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated after the first sip. The smell had a light earthy spice with a sweet grassy, slight orange peel followed by a light piney aroma. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined subtly in a slight refined sort of way. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat bitter with a good harshness but nothing over the top. Overall, this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.
