Everything works in this beer. You can smell the orange peel up front. Citrus balance is perfect and then the white oak is a perfect compliment on the back end. The best citrus type beer I've had. A lot going on for a pale ale

As a Florida Cracker there probably isn’t a better beer I could review first, except maybe CG’s Florida Cracker. I’m fairly new to this reviewing of good beers and developing my palate, so take it for what it’s worth. Appearance is super clear yellow gold with slight head. Aroma brings me back to youth peeling not quite fresh grapefruit and oranges from my backyard trees. Nice tingle of citrus tones then just skirting on the border of hops to confuse with an IPA. Judging the palate is still developing, but I feel that it tingles around the mouth for a nice light delayed subtly fizzled sensation. Overall, my expectations were met, and brought me back nostalgia of my youth (If you read the history on the beer Lue Gim Gong was very important to the citrus industry in Florida, 100% Valencia!) I would like to be more familiar with the "American Oak" taste mentioned in description to see where that plays in the taste.

Clear amber with a small head, Pine and orangey citrus hop aroma. Clean and dry. Hoppy without a lot of bitterness. Really yummy, We were too late to get a growler or more would have gone home with us.

PhillyCraft (3393) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap, pours hazy orange with white head. Candy orange like the wizard the day before but not as sweet and artificial. As it warms you get some spice and Asian herbs on top of the tangerine/orange zesting. Pretty tasty glad it came in a 11 oz glass and not the 5’s like most of the event.

POurs yellow. Nose is lemon, heavy citrus, grain. Flavor is hints of lemon grass, orange rind, pith and semi sweet malts.

burg326 (3840) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
On draft at CCB, poured a light orangish yellow color with aromas of orange, orange peel, light hops, and some more citrus. Flavors are the same, light, refreshing, great citrus flavor, easy drinker, a solid summer beer.

Chalsk (1068) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at Cambridge for PBW. Pours a golden yellow color with white foam head. Light citrus aroma with some hop spice. Light, frothy sweet citrus taste with some spice for balance. Solid and sessionable.

markwise (4524) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Another step in the road to CCB’s session beer dominance. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a nice floral, grassy, and citrusy hop profile with some lemongrass and orange in the front. Flavor is similar with some nice citrus character all over- lemongrass and all manner of nice hoppiness. Light to medium in body and lingering hop punch in the finish.
