COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When you make a pot of coffee, but only use half the water, you get some pretty rich coffee. That’s the approach we took with our latest offering. OBP Squared, with half the water, has 11% alcohol by volume - twice that of original OBP.
The result is a bold, distinct taste of its own. Made with twice as much real orange blossom honey, all-natural ingredients and no refined sugar, it really is the new king bee of beers.

DrSilverworm (8548) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Shared with Chris R. Clear orange color. Bubbly ring of white head. Bits of lace. Nose is caramel, honey. Taste is not as cloying sweet as I expected, much better balance than I expected (which reflects my surprise from the base OBP). Actually hides the 11% alcohol astonishingly well. More of the orange blossom in the finish, well integrated with a pilsner type malt base. Sort of mildly peppery. Some orange citrus. Medium to bigger body. Smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick body, then satisfyingly dry in the finish. Damn, this is dangerous stuff. Drinks like 8%.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle Val & Ben. Pour thick and viscous. Smell is a tad metallic. Strong and alky but it carries some of that wild attitude about itself. Yes, that wild tart thing keeps sticking its head up and I keep knocking it down like wack a mole, heheh. Yes, friendly warming sensations abound. Is surprisingly absent of that medicinal thing, l and I appreciate it. Somewhat good sizzling fine cutting co2.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Smells like oranges with a hint of honey. the ABV is well hidden. Appearance- pours a burnt orange with a small white head Taste- uhhmm, orange and honey, very little beer flavor for me. No hint of the ABV, a scary beer to drink not knowing the ABV. LOL Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. This beer has an oily texture. Overall- Not a horrible beer, it is rather average to above average. The high ABV matched to the price point is probably very helpful to the brewer. I bet this is popular for that reason.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin head and some pretty nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, obviously mostly orange and with a huge alcohol overtone. Taste is extremely boozy to the point of overpowering what could be a nice flavor. Mouthfeel is very oily with a very bitter, astringent finish. I get the idea behind this beer but it just doesn’t really work at all for me. Avoid.

Cybercat (4033) - Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Can. Pours appetizing clear amber with a fairly thick, if not persistent, buff head. Malty aroma has a strong honey overtone that makes the salivary glands go Pavlov. Flavor has bold malty, honey, and bitter hoppy notes, not your typical Pilsner for sure! Texture has average body and fizz, and leaves a nice honey finish that has the perfect level of sweetness. Buzz on over to your favorite package store or watering hole and hive one - you’ll bee glad you did.

hman43 (607) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2014
It pours and looks clear. It is actually a rather light orange in color. There is virtually no head and no lacing to speak of. The is a distinct smell honey with orange. It also has a sweet sugary smell to it. The first thing that hits the taste is alcohol, then flower with a hint of honey. The alcohol was overwhelming to the degree that it actually damaged the taste.

Derek881 (1079) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUL 4, 2014
Poured this beer from a regular bottle into a mason jar glass to drink. The beer had a rich, deep amber-orange color with a good-sized foamy off white head with pretty good retention, cling and lacing. Its aroma had strong notes of honey, along with orange, and bits of wheat, grainy hops, and perhaps some caramel malt. The beer had a somewhat sweet orange and honey flavor, but mixed with a lighter grainy bitter effect as well. It had fairly average carbonation, and thickness, with a somewhat wet and watery body. Thank you for the beer, Dayton!

JHeath99 (1445) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent amber with the most miniscule ring of off white head. Aroma is very faint, some basic malts/hops with some fruit. Taste is pretty bad, overly sweet with nothing to balance it. The sweetness masks the abv.

smaynard6000 (785) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2014
bottle. Pours a dark golden color with soft carbonation and minimal head. Aroma is grain and some sweetness. Thick on the palate, this is a sweet beer. Not bad, but certainly not anything great.

crajun (1075) - , Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2015
can. MUCH better than the original and good for several sips but a little too much sweetness, alcohol at end of 12 oz. slight malty aroma. nice orange honey pour.
