3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as pictured. Not a style that I drink often but I was excited for this. Poured an orange red, as expected. Tasted somewhat boozy though I could definitely make out the orange in it. Smooth and not super carbonated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an amber orange color. Small white head. Orange aroma. Flavor of red grapefruit and blood orange. Lots of sweet citrus bitterness. High alcohol is very well hidden. Tons of orange in this. Reminds me of an orange that is just a bid too bitter. Citrusy bitter mouthfeel

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared by emacgee. Thanks. Glimmering, fairly translucent, reddish amber with little to no head or lace. Nose presents a strong blood orange aroma, cranberry, banana, guava also feature, but to me it smells more like a
sweet tropical punch than a beer. Flavor is sharp and messy. Orange, booze, tea, lots of red fruits, dirty bitter finish. Light lemon tartness, lots of booze this reminded me a lot of an expensive cocktail i had that was set on fire and just full of booze and citrus.Not a big fan.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean ruby orange pour with a wispy dirty white head. Very very interesting nose, hard to describe. Rich and ephemeral at the same time, definitely some peppery and zesty notes. CItrus rind and orange flesh for sure with a light malty sweetness. A light astringency from the rind. Medium body with a warming finish and light carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours reddish clear and slitly brown. Small white head.
Peppery, orange, coriander aroma.
Palate is thin, watery, tart, slight bitterness - probably from the zest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nutty aroma. Clear copper, thin yellow head. Overripe orange, subtle lemongrass. Medium body, easy carbonation. Alcohol readily apparent, but easily drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark orange color with little head. Nose of malt and orange peels. Taste of sweet malt but fairly overbearing orange peel bitterness. Not bad which is good considering I have had one bad shorts beer after another.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a semi transparent maroon/copper color, very low carbonation, aroma of pepper, citrus (fruit and hops), and a faint note of yeast. Hits the mouth with medium body, malt is very light, the blood orange and pepper tagteam in the middle and slap you around silly, finish is slightly sweetening, drying, and sharp. Very interesting brew.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 bottle. Golden orange with minimal head. the taste is very unique with lots of blood orange. alcohol is extremely well hidden for the crazy ABV. this is an awesome beer.
