alexsdad06 (8917) - Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2014
Draft at City Tap House DC. Pours a hazy golden color with orange highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus peel, a splash of orange, floral notes, grass, lightly toasted bread with mild bitterness to the finish. A bit soft and thin mid palate. This is not one of my favorites from this brewery.

douglas88 (8337) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. A nice nose of oranges, dry husky malts. Sweet, bigger Amarillo, oranges, bitterness throughout, more earthy dry malts. I guess my only complaint is that the Munich especially is getting in the way here, too dusty and earthy to be as clean as it could be. But overall this is solid.

laiti (8036) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ La Jolla Brewing Company. Aroma has orange juice and tropical fruits. Flavour has orange, grapefruit and some malt. Also mild, sweet berry juice tones in the finish. Decent.

downender (7846) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Amber in colour, with a slight, white, head and moderate fizziness. Sweetish, apricot and peach aroma, with a touch of floral hop. Flavour had plenty more citrus character, crisp malts and a dry finish. Good.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ La Jolla Brewing Co, San Diego, CA. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh orange sweetness, floral notes and a bit of white bread. Flavour of crisp juicy fruitiness, floral notes, a bit of tartness and sweet maltiness. Medium bodied. Very crisp and refreshing.

after4ever (7540) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2013
Draft at fields. Pours a murky dark amber with bright orange highlights. Dense pillowy white head. Mild sweet orange blossom nose, sweet and floral. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet with a mild dry bitterness. Not a real blood orange showcase, far from the sharp bitterness of a campari. Mild finish.

jredmond (7408) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Vin, I believe shared with Pat, Pj, Dave, Sean and Judo. Pours a light hazy orange body with not much head, some minor lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter citric hop. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with notes of citrus fruits, citra hop, lemon peel and spice. Ok pale ale.

nimbleprop (7357) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2014
12oz pour at City Taphouse DC. Very hazy gold with some lacing, white head. Nose has a lot of citrus peel, a little potpourri, oranges, tangerines, some grass, a little flower pollen. Flavor is fairly well balanced, lightly sweet, light honey, bright orange juice, some nectarine. A bit too watery.

blankboy (7180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of blood oranges first followed by light citrus hops, lemon tartness, pale malt and light herbs. Flavour follows but everything is more subtle and harder to detect and with a dry, light to moderate bitter finish -- still pleasant though. Average bodied. Pretty good and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
