tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Tap: Opaque brown-copper body, lighter amber near top and bottom. Creamy eggshell head, a lace ring or two is left behind. Aroma is juicy, spicy orange flesh and orange peel. Slightly sugary, Pez candy like, a bit of wheat, too? Taste is wheaty, tastes like a fruited wheat beer... Need to confirm. Hint of orange zest, not as strong as I’d like it. Kind if normal orange, not much "blood" orange. Very mild tartness mid palate that fades to a dry, wheat finish. Light toasty malt, too. Thin, crisp mouth feel. Decent at first, but the orange vibrancy grows with warmth & beer gets better. Pretty nice fruited ale by the end of the glass.

Bottle. Thanks to Nate. Fuzzy stone fruit nose, dates, a bit of citrus zestiness. Light copper color. Mild fruity initial, with some strawberry and thin sweet stone fruit, and little slices of oranges. Fades out pretty quickly. Thin-medium body.... a bit watery, actually. Nose is impressive, but flavors are quite mild.

KyotoLefty (10593) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Nose of orange, biscuit, some caramel, grass, some pine. Juicy and biscuity with orange flavor but not the overwhelming citrus of so many others of this type. Decent.

12floz bottle, freshness date xx.xx.2017 (rubbed off), $2 for a single, nonic glass conveyance. Eh, it is blood orange in color for sure with one-finger of head (automatic 5 for appearance just for aptness). I give aroma a 5, because while orange zest is there it is staid. Taste and palate I give a 7 and 4 respectively. A pretty-well balanced ale that is equal parts hops and malt. Additives add a little zing to what is a lightly toasted, bready, and sessionable. Overall decent (14). I could go for another, but Dark Horse beers aren’t widely distributed in my area.

B. Pours a clear burnt orange color with white head. The orange flavor isn’t over powering

willisread (3539) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle from J’s. Pours a clearish, deep copper with a finger of foam that lingers then dissipates. Malty, caramel forward nose. Toffee and overripe blood orange. Thin and sweet. Too sweet and heavy for what it is. Need less malt and more hops.

3.2
unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Pours a hazy orangish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of musty grain with some earthy citrus and a hint of bitterness. Flavor has sweet citrus and earthy grains with a bit of a biscuit note underlying.

Shag (3036) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2017
A dark orange to copper color with a white head. The aroma contains some oranges and herbal notes. The flavor is more malty than anything not what I expected with some caramel, toffee, and oranges. This is a straight up EPA. Overall it is not bad some good flavors and very easy drinking.

3.2
drpimento (3725) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Aroma’s fairly mild with malt and a bit of orange. Flavor’s lacking in hops for a pale ale: a little butterscotch and orange. A fairly ho hum beer.

2.8
FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a caramel-orange color with an enormous foamy yellow-white head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was tart and dry orange. The flavor was tart, dry and bitter with orange. Medium length finish. Medium body. meh.

HoppyScallywag (339) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Eh... too corny/corn meal type taste to it with a little orange peel maybe. Not a huge fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
