Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and cleaner. Tastes malty with some weird stale hoppy notes. Not liking this one at all.

On tap at the brewpub. Nice copper pour with a bubbly tan head. Odd, candylike nose - sweet, but tart. Like a jolly rancher crossed with a SweeTart. Notes of orange powdered Kool-Aid. Sweet orange citrus notes, orange rind and pepper in the finish. Too powderey tasting for me. Not good.

Pint on tap at the brewpub. Citrus, orangey aroma. Man, is this orange-nectarine-like. Quite aromatic. Smells tasty. Transparent dark copper color with a small, off-white/khaki head. Starts very hoppy, with citrus and orangey hops. There is also some distinct hempy hop notes later on as this finishes. There is a nice, pleasant chewy malty body. This is tasty and very well-done. I wish they had this stuff regularly.
