They picked the right name for this brew. It describes the flavor profile perfectly. Big old Orange notes on the nose and the orange zest comes thru in the flavoring. A fun beer to drink, I polished the growler off with little effort.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Pineapple, grapefruit and orange zest. Bitter finish.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours an opaque amber/reddish with a medium tan head. Aroma is earthy and bitter...i detect none of the citrus or stonefruits they claim to be present in the aroma. Flavor is mostly piney and bitter with a bit of caramel and doughy maltiness...again...what fruit? Mouthfeel is light/medium with an earthy/piney dry bitter finish. Given the commercial description, this is a disappointment.

Draft. Poured a hazy medium-dark copper with a thin, quickly disappearing white head. Great IPA aroma with the citrus really standing out but not overpowering. Big, bright hop flavors but easy to drink. Didn’t get any orange flavors but didn’t affect the enjoyment. Really nice bitter finish on the backside.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Cloudy deep tea amber pour. Wispy head. Chewy, hoppy nose. Walnut and toffee. Taste is nutty, very oily. Palate quite aggressively bitter and nutty. Don’t get the ’orange whip’ aspect. Not as soft as the Two Hemispheres. Reminds me more of SN Celebration. Fiancé said she got some orange creamsickle out of it.

kassner (1338) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2012
On tap at Mad Fox. Very aromatic. Copper color, no head though and a nice level of malts. Very nice and just the tiniest hint of orange cream icecream

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Draft. Hazy orange amber color, white edge head. Aroma of orange peel, bitter grass. Taste is bitter citrus. Like a hopped Grand Marnier. Very tasty.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Big fruity citra hoppy aroma with some light sweetness. The flavor has lemony citric hops, with fresh floral notes and a light sweetness. Good stuff.

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Growler shared with Jason - grazie amigo. Poured a murky tangerine with a modest head. Nose of lemon peel and raspberries, with a ton of grapefruit. Taste is primarily a hoppy blast of citrus and pink grapefruit, with tell-tale grassy bitterness on the back end. Finishes a bit sweet with an Orange Julius stickiness (per the label - I guess) Nice carbonation. A solid IPA.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 6/10/11

Aroma: The nose more fruity then taste, some citrus and tropical fruits
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish color with a decent sized off-white head
Flavor: The taste is rather hoppy, not a ton of balance, but some light maltiness
Palate: This one has a medium (plus) body with a finish that is rather dry
Overall Impression: There is not a ton of balance to this one, but it was a rather solid IPA. This was some solid stuff. I enjoyed this one, a good offering from Mad Fox.
