The first few sips I’m greeted with a sweet, creamy, citrus. The creaminess imparts a satisfying mouthfeel. The hoppiness sits right in the mid-palate instead of blowing out the front of my tongue. As the beer warms, sweetness starts to build and take on a syrupy character.
The Orderville has a great balance. The hops don’t overwhelm the profile, and the sweetness and citrus both play well against each other as well.
The finish is that sweet citrus but also some grapefruit sour citrus to balance it out.
The Modern Times Orderville is a solid beer in the hazy IPA category. Although it’s not strictly sessionable at 7.2%, the flavor isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy, and delivers a balanced citrus experience.
