Tweed Brewing Co. Orange County IPA (4.3%)

This is a rather nice little beer brewed with oranges, though whether or not it’s an IPA or a Pale Ale remains to be seen.
Whatever it calls itself it’s pleasant to drink and I’d happily spend an evening with it.
Pouring a pale gold with a tiny ring of bubbles for a head the aroma is honey and straw and a hint of orange marmalade.
Taking a swig you find a subtle soft malting that gives you rich tea biscuits and caramel wafers, honey and brown bread, and then a bunch of hops that provide a good lemony bitterness, some pithy garden herbs and a little woody hedgerow while the oranges add a soft fruitiness and a little zippy zest to the finish.
Very nice indeed, though I’d like to see what this beer would be like with an extra couple of ABV to drive the flavours forward a bit more.
