thegreenrooster (3499) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pour is a orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice, lush citrus hop. Flavor does not live up to the aroma. Hops are there but way weak. There is a more matly backbone in the flavor that does give the beer a nice earhtyness. This was ok and worthy of a pick up.

nuplastikk (5031) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 12oz can, Hazy orange-tan with a steady, foamy, off-white head. Cool, astringent hop aroma, quite aromatic and nice. Quite hop-forward, wouldn’t be out of place at a West Coast brewpub. Well balanced still, with a nice toasty malt backbone. Clean, bold, and true to style. Well done.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Can pours orange-gold with a white head. Aroma is extremely vegetal with notes of white and green onion smothering a hint of caramel. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is moderate, sticky,and finishes with spicy vegetal hops. Ever had the urge to drink an onion?

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Orange with a small head. Light aroma of malt and oniony hop. Light flavor of sweet malt and vegetal hop on the finish. Thin. Whatever.

daknole (10202) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Gold pour, white head. Onions, hops, malt, boring crapass aroma. Flavor is onions, hops, malt, light honey...boring...not bad...but NOT good either. MEH.

Strykzone (5500) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
This beer has a big soapy off white head that leaves some sticky lacing. It is cloudy golden with some shadowy stringy stuff floating like a lava lamp. A nice aroma of sweet citrus fruit especially oranges along with some sticky pine. The flavor suffers because nothing really steps to the forefront. That did improve as the beer warmed. There is some biscuit, some fairly complex citrus fruit. The finish brings out just a hint of peppery spice.
