    I just don’t get beer distribution…this brewery is an hour from my house yet this beer is not on the shelves of the beer stores in town.

    Nice review. It sounds good…that description of buttery moving into malty orange. Unique is what I l look for in the realm of IPA. I’m going to see if they can order some for me.

    Yes, I’m in Toledo, OH. But hopefully for not too long. I’m going to hit up a shop I rarely go to that sometimes has a different selection. I really want to try this!

    You had me at orange creamsicle deep-fried in cereal! I’m in NJ, too, so I should be able to get my hands on this. Sounds like it’s a mouthful!

      @jim, last I checked the Liquor Outlet in Boonton had a couple bottles. on a side note they have a vast selection of whiskeys, bourbons, and scotches. enough to make me drool!

    The Liquor Outlet is my new go-to store. It’s on the way home from work which is convenient, but what’s really great is their selection. Lots of choices and really well “curated” if you can use that word for a selection of beers. I wound up in the hands of Kevin last time I was over there and he turned me on to a lot of new stuff, including Allagash. I think he was pumped up by your interview!

    I’ll look for this next time I’m over there, which might be today. Fridays are too busy there!

    I enjoyed this beer tonight and it’s a really good experience. Great thick malty mouthfeel with rich caramel and combined with strong hop bitterness is a lot of fun. The hop bitterness last and lasts, as you pointed out. I thought the hop flavour was more grapefruit and lemon than orange, but it’s all citrusy hops and lots of it.

    Thanks for your helpful review and for the calorie estimate!
