Default "neon" orange color ipa

Had an ipa yesterday that was a really bright orange color. Almost neon orange. What grain profile does it take to get that neon orange?

How neon orange? kinda like a carrot orange? Or as bright as hunter's blaze orange? I haven't had seen anything that was a "neon" orange that wasn't because of a dye like food colouring.

A lot is going to depend on the lighting. Here is the recipe for an IPA I am drinking. It has a decent orange color but you need a little light and a light colored background to see it. I'm guessing its the redwheat and rye that helps. The haze in the pic is on the glass, its a sharper orange when the glass isn't hazed.

Well, not exactly neon but a very bright orange with back lighting.

Man that's a tasty looking beer. I think you hit the nail right on the head in reference to lighting conditions.

The IPA I had was much paler than your brew. Thanks for the tip on the rye and red wheat. It'll give me a good place to start researching.

I've also read that victory malt will give an orange color as well. I used some in an IPA that I just bottled today.

That´s our last IPA experiment (belgian). It has an orangeish colour profile with a huge and persistent head! Full of spyces and flavors...
Cheers!!

Munich does a nice job in this...once you break 10% you can really work towards a darker orange.
