Bottles from Smith’s, Capone’s, and Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours hazy gold with off-white head. Nose is orange zest, wheaty pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes crisp, hopcitric, complex, with some spice and more citrus in the finish.

On draft at 4 Hands. The pour is a darker golden orange, slightly hazy, with a thick white head and a good bit of lace as it falls. The aroma is good. Lots of juicy citrus and a nice bitter hop. There isn’t a lot of wheat, which I like. The flavor is way more wheat dominated. The zest moves to a little bit of a spiciness and it doesn’t work for me. Love the blood orange juiciness on the front end. The mouth feel is clean and crisp with a light carbonation and a lingering syrupy sweetness on the back end. Nah.

Was a little skeptical when I saw the "brewed with orange zest" because those can easily turn into a leinenkugel tasting thing. The orange zest in this case is very subtle and could be mistaken for hops. Bitter up front but that settles to leave the slight orange taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear, golden pour with a frothy, white head with good lacing. The aroma has a big dose of citrus with notes of orange peel and grapefruit. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a long, dry finish.

Hazy orange-gold with not much head. Aroma is very sweet! Orange juice, malt, caramel, biscuit. Flavor is not too sweet with lots of hops character coming out in the finish. The orange zest is present but not overwhelming. Normally I don’t like lots of crackery biscuit flavor but it works well here.
