Crushed at BSAF 10. Very sweet, citrus bite from the oranges, with the pepper coming through in the finish. Cool beer, but too sweet for me.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle from Shorts. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy hop, spice and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout complex beer.

deyholla (5960) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 20, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Bottle. Pours a brownish burgundy with a very small light wooden brown head. Aroma has a combination of caramel and blood orange with a slight undertone of pepper. Flavor begins sweet with caramel but the finish brings a blood orange note that helps balance out the flavor nicely. There was a hint of spice and some coriander in the finish

Orange pour. At the brewery. Huge hop aroma with big spice, spruce and huge orange peel. Flavor is also massively hoppy with added orange, coriander, pine. Tons of spruce. Interesting.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Pours dark ruddy brow with a layer of a cream colored head. Nice citrus nose with a touch of feet, but oddly not in a bad way. Flavor is same with a touch of vinous fruit. Medium full mouthfeel.

On tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest poured a clear dark reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of wheat, orange and a hint of pepper. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of orange, wheat and white pepper with a crisp dry lingering fruity finish.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Boulder Strong Fest at Avery. Clear dark red with medium white head. Aroma is outstanding - big earthy hops, tons of coriander and other unidentifiable spices, Christmas smells, molasses. Taste is unique and somewhat strange - huge spices with big hop backbone, bitter finish. Notes of soap in taste and marinara sauce in aroma.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2010
GABF 09. Pours a bright amber body and an oily diminishing head. Aroma is zesty spiced orange peel, juicy and oily, with toasted malts dough, wheat and honey sweetness- phenolic and a bit off- fusels and high esters. Fruity flavor, orange juice, zest, pine, sweet, sugary, phenolic messy high alcohol and harsh solvent finish- a let down.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2009
GABF 09 Odd aroma wouldn’t have said orange, not bad, but different. Odd flavor intriguing, but a bit off lemon grass w/ some blood orange over a bit of alcohol. Not that good.
