A double IPA that combines our favorite citrus-forward hops like Sabro, HBC 472, Amarillo, Talus, and Cashmere to craft a beer that tastes just like the unrhymable fruit.

ORNG Double IPA by Wild Leap Brew Co. was reviewed in accordance with the style guidelines as established by the Beer Judge Certification Program under category 22A Double IPA.

A firm pour from a 12-ounce can into a pint glass released a potpourri of aromas that were intensely citrusy in nature and reminiscent of orange and tangerine rind.

The hue was of a pale hazy golden nature that was topped off by a tight white head that persisted.

The flavor was intensely hop forward and as in the aroma an authoritative fruity and citrusy blend was evident. Complementary tropical fruit and piney flavors accompanied citrus notes, with the former being more prominent here than in the bouquet. Malt, which claimed only a supporting role, lent a bit of sweetness leading to a dry yet not bitter finish.

A full body supported a pleasant alcoholic warmth that lingered nicely on the palate.

Quite a fruity citrus representation of the style without the exaggerated juicy character found with lesser Double IPAs.
