Break Apart Orange Cream Ale

High Water Brewing (Lodi, CA)
"Break Apart Chocolate Orange Cream Ale is a delightful tribute to the eponymous confectionary treat. We feature four varieties of sun-kissed orange peel, hints of vanilla and a delicate layer of bittersweet chocolate from cacao nibs, creating a flavor memory in your mouth. Tap into our bright, delicious and refreshing Summer Cream Ale – a flashback to warm days and good times."

The aroma is definitely that of a creamsicle.
The flavor is certainly unique. Sweet, tangy orange tempered by a hint of vanilla. Then the bitter chocolate comes on.
Tart, vaguely sweet finish.
Not sure I need a beer like this, but really glad I tried it.

ABV 5.4%, 15 IBU
