CitruSinensis Pale Ale

Lagunitas Brewing (Petaluma, CA)
"We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced 'em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our DogTown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!"

Sharp citrus on the nose. Not nearly as"tart" as I expected. Sweet, complex orange flavors followed by nice malt flavor and a bit of hops.
An outstanding "orange" beer.

ABV 7.5%, IBU 49
